Anxiety and Your Gut Health

Updated: Nov 22, 2022

It is so important to understand the connection between the state of your gut and your mental health.

Hundreds of studies have proven the very intimate connection that exists between our brain and our gut and how the imbalance of gut bacteria can drastically alter our brains production of serotonin. Serotonin is our 'happy drug' and contributes to our well-being and happiness.

There has never been a more important time to be paying attention to the state of our health, not just to protect ourselves against any and all viruses, but also to ensure our mental health remains in check!

When your gut doesn't have the right balance of bacteria not only does this impact your mental health, but it impacts how food is digested, how long digestion takes and how much nutrition can be extracted from the food that you eat. Low levels of iron and magnesium are also linked to anxiety and depression.


Symptoms

Symptoms of poor gut health include bloating, excessive gas, cramps, constipation or diarrhea. You may also feel brain fog, impacted memory, poor concentration and low energy and motivation.

The absolute worst thing you can do right now is eat sugar.

As tempted as you might be to sit on the couch and feast off processed comfort food, it is only adding to your problem.

Sugar feeds the bad bacteria and creates an overly acidic and inflammatory state. This creates a huge imbalance in your gut bacteria.


Instead of eating low vibrational, packaged food, increase your hydration and eat lots of fruit.

The natural sugar does not feed the bad bacteria, actually the reverse, it is needed to promote the good bacteria!
