Gut Brain Communication

Once upon a time, we believed that serotonin a.k.a. the happy hormone was produced in the brain.

Well, that story is old news now.

Breakthrough studies have revealed that 90% of serotonin is actually produced by your gut bacteria.

This has led researchers to look into the power of the gut-brain axis to help treat anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders.

In fact, a systematic review of 10 human trials published in the Annals of General Psychiatry found that consuming gut bacteria (as probiotics) can help alleviate feelings of depression and anxiety in as little as 20 days!

But this groundbreaking science is far from reaching the general public.

Did you know that Natural Bioenergetics can help optimize the gut bacteria and production of Serotonin and many other neuro-regulators. Issues with reactions to foods and drink, metabolism and absorption can all be tweaked using NB protocols leading to improved mood.

In the Foundations of Muscle Monitoring learn how to test what supplements work for you and what your body wants. Or, have a specialist test it up for you so that you can optimize support for the good bacteria.

We know the gut-brain access contributes significantly to mood and anxiety. Contact your NB Specialist for a gut tune up or check out the class listings and take the Foundation course.
