Your Second Brain

You might be eating 'right' and pooping everyday but still feel stuck in your fat loss journey. Have you ever stopped to focus on gut health? Why is this so important.. 

You gut isn't just a highway that transports food from one hole to the next. It's a complex system. In todays day in age we have become accustomed to eating on the go or not eating at all and living high stress lifestyles. This causes damage to your gut and your ability to produce good gut bacteria.

Your gut bacteria plays a huge role in how well you function. From your ability to focus, sleep to feeling happy during the day. Good gut bacteria sends signals to your brain to produce neurotransmitters.

Neurotransmitters are often referred to as the body’s chemical messengers, similar to hormones. They are brain chemicals made by gut bacteria and shipped to the brain.

Hormones are chemical messengers that are transported through the blood stream.

The 4 main brain neurotransmitters we talk about are:

  1. DOPAMINE - Is responsible for driving motivation
  2. ACETYLCHOLINE - Is responsible for focus & memory
  3. GABA - Is responsible for calming the mind and allowing you to fall asleep easily
  4. SEROTONIN - Is responsible for making you feel happy
Having a healthy gut provides the terrain for this bacteria to live on and produce things. Your gut bacteria is responsible for how much of these neurotransmitters you produce. If you have leaky gut and your gut is wide open, it will not produce nutrients to feed the brain.

If gut bacteria doesn't have a good environment to live in or produce neurotransmitters then these are some issues you may see or experience:
  • Lack of passion, motivation, drive, focus
  • Low libido
  • Mental or physical fatigue
  • Sugar or carb cravings, nighttime snacking
  • Forgetfulness or difficulty remembering things
  • Trouble falling asleep, insomnia
  • Depression & anxiety
It doesn't stop there. Folate, thiamine, biotin, B12 are produced in the gut.
