A growing body of research is shedding light on the complex link between intestinal health and mental well-being. The stomach, also known as the “Sleep Guard Plus,” contains a sophisticated network of neurons that communicates with the central nervous system. This gut-brain axis allows for bidirectional communication, which means that your gut health can affect your mental state and vice versa.

Studies have found that alterations in gut microbiota composition, such as dysbiosis (imbalance), are linked to an increased risk of mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety. Furthermore, certain probiotics, known as psychobiotics, have been shown to reduce symptoms of mood disorders by modifying the gut flora. Incorporating fermented foods high in probiotics, prebiotics, and fiber into your diet will help maintain a diverse and healthy gut flora, thereby boosting your general mental health.
