You may have heard about the gut brain connection. If you haven't, make sure to check out the video attached to the link provided. If you have, then you know how important it is for the brain and gut to work together in harmony if we wish to feel our best physically and mentally. And did you know that the gut is actually considered a brain of sorts? And is sometimes referred to as the 2nd brain? It is! (some even think it is is actually the 1st brain...but lets save that convo for another day :)

Pretty neat, huh?

These days many of us are lucky to be aware that the brain is highly affected by the state of the gut microbiome. Meaning that when the gut microbiome suffers our brain also undergoes stress resulting in things such as mental illness, weight issues ranging from minor to major cases. Imbalances in the microbiome cause major issues in things such as hormone production and regulation. This poses many problems for the brain and affects how well it can function Without the appropriate elements available provided by digestion our brains cannot work efficiently and this can lead to a plethora of illnesses.  In order to achieve great mental and physical health we must first take some time to help re balance the gut and get our digestive systems working efficiently.

This is where healthy minds truly begin.

What can cause the microbiome to suffer and our digestion to falter? The list is massive. Simply we mustn't forget that the human body and all its metabolic systems and actions are very complex and many things common in today's lifestyles are actually wreaking havoc on our bodies and mind. Here is a list of harmful lifestyle choices that you may want to reconsider, especially if you want to super charge your gut microbiome and achieve greater health.

  • Smoking
  • Not Sleeping Enough
  • Being Dehydrated
  • Eating Greasy Processed Foods
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Overeating
  • Isolating Yourself From the World and Others

Luckily, when we know better we can do better.

One of the best ways to support the gut and your digestive tract is by supplying the tract with essential components to create/maintain the environment necessary for the many different bacteria making up the gut microbiome. This is crucial for the survival/longevity of your gut bacteria. Eating the right foods can speed up the process. For instance, you can easily do this with the help of Live Pine's 100 Wild Plant Enzymes. It is exactly what your microbiome longs for! Acting like the soil needed for a healthy crop of gut microbes. More powerful than a probiotic, and chock full of good for you nutrients derived from 100 wild grown plants. We can assure you that your body will thank you for sharing such a beneficial treat.

Being more conscious of our daily patterns and habits we have can better help all of us get on the right track for us and to begin healing both our digestion and brain function simultaneously. This should be a major interest for anyone looking to live better and as physical and mental disease free as possible. Remembering that what we put into our bodies (energy in the form of food or effort) is essential when figuring out why we are getting undesirable results in our health, and figuring out a plan to fixing the issue. Whether it be physical or mental.

    Being honest with ourselves is our best ally when dealing with healing our selves. Once we admit where we have weaknesses we can then turn them into a strength.
