Mental Health Awareness with Sara Troy and her guest Krista Samimi, on air from June 29th
Why is taking care of your GUT good for your MENTAL HEALTH? Well, did you know that 60-90% of your “feel good” neurotransmitters are produced in your gut? That’s right. So how you feel is not just “in your head,” but more likely what’s going on in your GUT..Being mindful of the foods you eat, and what you put in your body is an important part to having good gut care.
Here’s a summary of key neurotransmitters and their function… Dopamine – affects your emotions, especially feelings of happiness and joy. Endorphins – interact with the opiate receptors in the brain to reduce your perception of pain. Oxytocin – is known as the love neurotransmitter that promotes connectedness. Norepinephrine – helps mediate focus and attention Serotonin – regulates anxiety and can affect mood, appetite, and sleep. If your gut is unhealthy because of acute or chronic stress, diet, or frequent antibiotic usage, you may notice an impact in your mental health – how you think, how you feel.Your gut knows what’s up about mental health! #gutbrainaxis#mentalhealth#guthealth
