Scientists have studied the connection between feelings the brain.
Studies carried out over decades have revealed certain areas of the brain are more active when people feel fear or happiness, for example.
There are signals from the gut that reach the brain as well.
In fact, these signals are able to reach multiple regions of the brain, including the insula, limbic system, prefrontal cortex, amygdala, and hippocampus.
While the gut is able to influence all these regions, it does not reach each and every part of the brain.
That being said, while the gut may not have a direct impact each of these areas, it is certainly possible for the gut to have some sort of influence on them.
So with that said, it could also mean that gut health can play a role in anxiety & depression, especially when it comes to inflammation.
So today, we go over how all of this can be related and what you can do about it.
