Can you change your mood by changing the food you eat? I would argue; yes! Because the gut-brain connection is incredibly strong! 🌿
One of the things that fascinates me the most about holistic health, is how it’s all connected! Your entire body – body and mind – is connected, and one thing affects the other, and the other way around, it’s incredibly fascinating!
As much as 90(!!)% of serotonin is made in your gut! Serotonin is the “happy hormone”/neurotransmitter, that is responsible for making you happy.
Let me just say that again – 90%!
What can we derive from that fact? That the food you eat and digest literally affect your mood!
You can thereby INCREASE your emotional well-being and happiness by eating more “gut friendly” food, such as whole foods, vegetables, fruits, fermented foods, probiotics etc. – the things that makes your gut health better! And by improving your gut health you will thereby – in the long run, also be able to improve your overall well-being!
Isn’t that just amazing?
Not to mention that eating “gut friendly food”, can also help if you have digestive problems or skin issues – because, it’s all connected! 🌿
