Do you want to improve your mental health? Then start with improving your gut health!

When our microbiome is out of balance then gut dysbiosis can set in because the bad bacteria outnumber the good.

We need these good bacteria to produce the important brain chemicals which are called neurotransmitters such as serotonin and GABA. If we don't have adequate good bacteria to produce these neurotransmitters that's when mental health issues can occur.

The beneficial bacteria in our gut produce about 90% of your body's serotonin.

This is important because serotonin your "happy hormone" affects mood and also influences pain reactions, libido, appetite and sleep cycle.

GABA is the neurotransmitter that helps you deal with fear and anxiety. So, if you don't have enough GABA then your feelings of fear and anxiety can cause a downward spiral.

So, if you want proper quantities of Serotonin and GABA then your gut microbiome needs to be very well balanced and diverse!

One of the first things you can do to improve the production of these brain chemicals and increase communication between the gut and brain is to introduce probiotic strains which promoto and accomplish this.These probiotic strains can also help reduce leaky gut and improve overall GI issues.
