Taking Care of Your Second Brain
A leaky gut always leads to other problems.
The gut is called the “Second Brain” of the body for a reason. It’s linked to nearly every facet of your health, including your immune system, brain function, and hormone health. In fact, approximately 95% of serotonin – A crucial hormone that aids in digestion, mood, sleep, bone health, and sexual function.
Your gut and your brain are in constant communication, sending signals to one another about their status and giving live updates. That’s why you feel happy right after a satisfying meal or why you get cranky when you haven’t eaten more than an apple all day.
So, when things start to go bad in the gut, your overall health suffers.
What’s Leaky Gut?
You’ve probably heard this term before, but leaky gut occurs when the digestive tract lining becomes so thin from all the toxins and bacteria we consume that food particles, chemicals, and anything else in your gut start to leak into your bloodstream.
The leaks trigger inflammation, bloating, allergic responses, and so much more.
Symptoms of a Leaky Gut:
- Gastrointestinal diseases, diarrhea, pain & constipation
- Autoimmune diseases
- Hormone imbalances
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Weak immune system
- Cravings for carbs & sugars
Say Goodbye to the Bloat
Bloated? Fatigued? Foggy?
Gas is a natural part of digestion. But too much of it can leave you feeling full and uncomfortable. Excessive gas bloat is usually a result of increased fermentation as your gut microbiome digests carbohydrates.
Feeling “backed up”? This is likely due to undigested contents such as foods and liquids. When your gut health isn’t optimal, your intestines can’t digest food properly, causing blockages and that dreadful “full” feeling.
Believe it or not, your hormones play a crucial role in determining bloat. Most women notice this during their menstrual cycles, but it’s also a common sign of premenopause. So, if your hormones are out of whack, that likely explains the extra bloating.
