What is the best way to explain the connection between gut bacteria and mental health? Does it have to do with sugar and why sugar is bad for your brain?
I think it's important to address what I believe is common sense when it comes to looking at how your nutrition affects your brain. Now, if your brain is lacking of good-quality nutrition, or free radicals or damaging inflammatory cells are floating around there in that cranial space of yours, can't you see how there might be an increase in brain tissue that's degrading? That seems like common sense, right? And what's fascinating is that for several years, there has been very little research that attempts to look at the ways foods affect moods and vice versa.
Today, there is more focus on medicine looking at the consequences and correlations between what you eat, how you feel, and ultimately behave, but the biome of your gut as well. The bottom line, begin to take an active approach in noticing how you feel after eating certain foods, not just while you're eating, but possible like the next day, right?
This plays along with the idea that your gut microbiome and immune system, or more importantly, your body's ability to handle any stressor are related more than we know. Once we understand why gut health matters, we won't have to answer the question “Does digestion affect your immune system?”
