Just one more reason to eat probiotic foods, and a diet that encourages the proper bacterial ratios.

Many refer to the gut as "the second brain" because of the vagus nerve that animates it, and cuz its the key producer of the neurotransmitter serotonin.

Of course the gut uses most of the serotonin it makes, but....

I think eventually the medical community will realize the gut is more important than they currently think.

Great article. I've started back on probiotics, again. I bought some that have more variety of good flora. I hope that helps.

Interesting article...thanks for posting. Guess eating more fruits and veggies is reason my energy increased, inflammation decreased and I feel good.

Here's some food for thought - the human body has upwards of ten times as many bacterial cells as it does people-cells. Bacteria are very small, so they don't take up as much space in our bodies as our human-cells, but our bacteria do play a role in everything from digestion to our immune systems. (The Wikipedia "human microbiome" page has some good basic info if you want to know more).

With all of this interaction between our bodies and all these bacteria that live with us, it turns out that healthy gut bacteria make for healthy people! And I found a lovely article this morning that summarizes the whole idea nicely:

robbwolf.com/2012/05/25/gut-health-obesity
/


One more reason to eat our veggies, and be thankful for all those "icky" bacteria we carry around!
