The Gut-brain Connection
Who hasn't experienced
butterflies in the stomach
a gut wrenching experience?
How do you medically explain this?
DAVID PERLMUTTER, MD ·
Your brain’s health is dictated by
what goes on in your gut.
What’s taking place in your intestines
affects not only your brain’s daily functions,
but also determines your risk
for a number of neurological conditions
in the future.
Your intestinal organisms,
participate in a wide variety of bodily systems,
immunity, detoxification, inflammation,
neurotransmitter and vitamin production,
whether you feel hungry or full,
how you utilize carbohydrates and fat.
All of these processes factor into
whether you experience
chronic health problems like allergies, asthma,
ADHD, cancer, type 2 diabetes, or dementia.
What you might not know
is that your microbiome
also affects your mood, your libido,
and even your perceptions of the world
the clarity of your thoughts.
Put simply, nearly everything about our health
— how we feel both physically and emotionally —
can hinge on the state of our
the connection between gut flora and the brain
is so important that in 2014
the National Institute of Mental Health
spent more than $1 million
on a research program
to study this relationship.
The gut has a bidirectional relationship
with the central nervous system,
referred to as the “gut-brain axis”.
This allows the gut
to send and receive signals
to and from the brain.

Fast facts on serotonin
is an important chemical neurotransmitter
in the human body.
It is commonly regarded as a chemical that
is responsible for maintaining mood balance.
Serotonin is created
by a biochemical conversion process.
Serotonin is manufactured in the brain
and the intestines.
The majority of the body's serotonin,
can be found in the gastrointestinal tract.
Serotonin that is used inside the brain
must be produced within it.
It is thought that serotonin
can affect mood and social behavior,
and sexual desire and function.
The truth is:
"look after your gut
if you want to achieve
peak brain performance"
among other health benefits.
