Have you heard of “the second brain”? This is a term commonly used when describing the gut area of our digestive system. Our gut is the only organ that has its own independent nervous system. It is a very sophisticated system that houses around 200 million neurons in the gut wall. To put this in perspective, a dog has about the same number of neurons in its brain.
In our digestive system, there are different types of bacteria that influence how our body functions. For example, 90-95 percent of our body’s serotonin is created by gut bacteria! Serotonin is known as the “happy hormone.” Bacteria in our gut isn’t always good bacteria. Bad bacteria is also housed in our gut, which creates a necessary balance for our body to thrive. However, when the ratio of good bacteria to bad bacteria is unbalanced, our health can be affected in many ways. This is why it is so important to supplement with good bacteria that help our gut thrive! Probiotics are supplements that provide that good bacteria straight to our digestive system.
