Your Gut And Your Brain: A Love Story (Digital Video & PDF)

Here’s the deal: Your gut and your brain’s relationship is bidirectional. Changes in your gut affect brain function and changes in the brain can affect gut function. In fact your gut and your brain talk to each other all the time. Why is that important? By monitoring what’s going on in the gut the brain can respond and adapt to the food we eat. Likewise, the gut can be primed to know what you are going eat! This has serious implications for how we deal with inflammation (and neuro-inflammation) and in ways to overcome obesity.
In this fascinating video, NeuroTrition’s Dr. Keith Sharkey provides insights into what research suggests about how probiotics and PREbiotics (food for your gut’s own bacteria) affect your mental and physical health. He’ll also help you better understand how to critically consider that latest hot research story or insight in the brain-gut-microbiome connection that everyone’s talking about.
