Did you know you can improve your mood with a Healthy Gut?
Your mood can be affected by your thoughts, sleep quality and chemical imbalances. But research show that the microbes in your gut may also be influencing your brain function and mood. Gut bacteria produces the majority of your body's supply of serotonin, an important neurochemical that affect mood, digestion and sleep.
So what should we eat and avoid for a healthier gut?
1. Take a probiotic
These good bactieria can improve digestion, strengthen immune system and boost mood. Besides a probiotic supplement, these foods can also help restore gut balance: Sauerkraut, Yogurt (plain, organic), Miso soup and soft cheeses
2. Eat more whole foods
Replace processed foods with foods that benefit the gut, such as: asparagus, carrots, broccoli, leafy greens, garlic and turmeric
Stress plays a big role in gut health as it can actually change the gut balance of bacteria. Practice relaxation techniques such as: meditation, yoga, journaling, reading and mindful breathing
4. Be mindful of Antibiotics, Sugar and Tap water
While antibiotics kill bad bacteria and protect you from disease they also affect the body's good bacteria. Combat this by taking a probiotic, eating a clean diet and drinking lots of water. Tap water can contain contaminants such as chlorine that kills bacteria, so invest in a water filter to avoid this. High consumption of sugar can also lead to an imbalance in gut bacteria and affect your immune system. Stick with natural sources of sugar found in: fruits, vegetables, honey and plain yogurt.
These are some ways to positively impact your emotional and mental states. Take these eating habits to increase your overall health and well-being.
