Feeling depressed and struggling with food cravings? An unhealthy gut may be part of the problem. Skeptical? We were too.

Have you heard of serotonin? It’s the neurotransmitter linked to feelings of happiness, and it’s vital for many physiological processes in humans, including regulating emotions and body temperature. It’s also essential to sound sleeping, reproductive functioning, and appetite control. Surprisingly, most serotonin is created in the bowel, not the brain.

Scientists have also discovered there are millions of nerve cells in the intestines and stomach – far surpassing the numbers in your spinal column. Not only that, but stress reactions release cortisol in your body impacting your emotions and physiological responses like digestion. Due to these findings, the gut is now often referred to as the second brain.
