Gut-Brain connection

In other words, the use of probiotics.

A lot of research is going on in this amazing connection between the gut and the brain. Pro-biotics rather than anti-biotics are words if you are new to tailored nutrition, that indicate we are discussing nutrients specific to the flora or micro nutrient in the digestive system. The health/balance of the digestive system is incredibly important to whole body, to the whole system. We are now aware of a vital connection with the working of the brain. If the microbiome in the gut is not ok, the brain energy will not be efficient.

Let’s cut to the quick! – I am focusing here on Anxiety and Depressive states. The main thing to look out for in the listed ingredients are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. If these two are the main ingredients you won’t go far wrong. Research may bring more to the front with time, which I will report.

Those especially new to this therapy need to be careful in their choice. There are very many of this supplement on the market. They can have side effects. They do need to be taken as instructed, either by your Nutritional Therapist, or you trust to the bottle instructions. This is because taken carelessly they could produce uncomfortable side effects, or certainly reactions. They are not dangerous if you know about them and how to handle the situation. Neither do you need to be afraid, anxious or panic – the very thing we are attempting to resolve with their use! So strongly suggest you speak with a Nutritional Therapist to ensure you don’t put yourself off before you get anywhere! Powerful, successful, enduring results will prevail, as powerful supplements they are – some needing refrigeration, some not. Some will not make it through the stomach acid. Some are powders, some are tablets, some are capsules. Your unique system needs specific care. Be nourished. Be well. Be in touch if you have need.
