GUTSY FOOD CHOICES
Posted On Nov 23, 2020
What makes us crave junk food?
The bacteria in our guts thrive on it, say researchers at the University of California at San Francisco, Arizona State University, and University of New Mexico. It’s thought that these microbes act on the vagus nerve, connecting the digestive tract to the brain. By altering nerve signals, the gut microbes can influence mood, behavior, and taste.
Luckily, we can tweak digestive tract microbes through diet and prebiotic and probiotic supplements. This way, the microbes that are best for us stay in control. They’re clinically proven to balance within a week.
