A recent article by Dr. Mercola highlights the importance of gut health. Here are some key points he makes.
- It helps to view your body as a “super organism” composed of a diverse array of symbiotic microorganisms. Proper balance of these microbes is essential for optimal physical and psychological health
- Recent research suggests that many people are deficient in beneficial gut bacteria, making it a very important consideration if you’re not feeling well, physically or psychologically
- Gut bacteria influence the processing and utilization of dietary nutrients; help protect against food borne disease, and can impact drug efficacy.
- Certain microbiota and beneficial bacteria have been found to produce beneficial psychotropic signals such as serotonin and dopamine.
My favorite supplement to support healthy gut bacteria is Life 5.
