Probiotics are well known to improve gut health. They are good bacteria which allow us to eat food that we cannot digest on our own. They work with prebiotics that are like food for probiotics, to release nutrients and minerals that are useful for our bodies.
Would you believe me if I told you that these little good bacteria help you to be happy?
Our gut is called “the second brain.” The brain and the gut are in constant communication, and this is allowed by our nerves (specifically the wandering nerves).
When the gut is in disorder, because of communication with the brain, the pattern mobility of the gut is going to change. Unfortunately, this will impact directly your mood. You might get diarrhea or experience stomach pain that might be induced by stress or anxiety but also because of the bad bacteria present in your gut. This is where probiotics step in to save the day! Probiotics will help your gut fight against the bad bacteria, while the prebiotics will produce compounds that will break them down.
But why not get to the root of the problem and avoid getting sick in the first place? With regular intake, probiotics will create a physical barrier called the mucus which prevents the development of bad bacteria in your gut as well as improve your overall health by inducing the development and maturation of immune cells within your body!
Moreover, the antioxidants produced will help protect the brain from oxidative stress, as well as induce neurotransmitters like serotonin and melatonin that makes you feel happy, and also, start biochemical processes involved in memory and learning!
So, if I can advise you: “remember to take your probiotics”
