Gut-Brain Connection

Updated: Jun 20, 2023

Have you ever felt your mood effected by the food you eat? Maybe felt happy or excited when eating cold watermelon on a hot day or maybe grumpy or irritable after fast food? This is because, believe it or not, your gut and your brain are connected.

Neurons are cells found in your brain and central nervous system that tell your body how to behave. There are approximately 100 billion neurons in the human brain. Interestingly, your gut contains 500 million neurons, which are connected to your brain through nerves in your nervous system.

Not only that, but 90% of your neurotransmitters are located in your digestive track. These neurotransmitters are responsible for the chemicals that our bodies produce and helps to aide in the regulation of emotions. Some of these chemicals and feelings are things such as serotonin (associated with happiness and your internal sleep-wake cycle) and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which helps control feelings of fear and anxiety.

When your digestive track is not functioning correctly. When you eat something that causes inflammation in the body, that also causes inflammation in the villi in the digestive track. This then causes impacts in your mood!
