Did you know that the bacteria found in your gut have a large effect on your mental health? Research shows that guy health can make a huge difference to your mental health thanks to what scientists are calling the “gut-brain axis”. Your brain and your gut send signals to each other via the axis, and researchers have found that inflammation in your gut is linked to some mental health disorders.

How to Have a Healthy Gut 

A healthy diet that consists of a lot of plant-based meals, seeds, nuts, fruits, and vegetables and food that has been naturally fermented can improve the health of your gut. 

If your diet consists of a lot of refined sugar, highly processed foods, and animal fats, you can have poor gut health.
