Have you ever felt “butterflies in your stomach,” or made a “gut decision”?
That might have been your “second brain” otherwise known as your gut talking. Our guts are composed of over 100 trillion bacteria and about 100 million nerve cells line the entire gastrointestinal tract. The gut and brain are often communicating with each other along what’s known as the gut-brain axis.
Both mental and physical health from Alzheimer’s disease to depression can be affected by the health of our guts. Recent scientific research has shown the numerous ways our guts work and heal.
