Your Gut is the Seat of Your Intuition too!
We all know that your gut assists with the functions of digesting food and elimination of waste. However, what if I mentioned that your gut is your second brain too!
For example, when we have had a particularly fatty meal, the gut and brain will talk and decide to hold that food in the stomach a little longer than for a lighter meal. Only when the food has been broken down sufficiently will it be sent to the small intestine.
Not only is the gut filled with nerve cells that receive and provide information to the brain, but the gut also produces more than 90% of the body’s serotonin – The “Happy” hormone that helps regulate our mood or emotions.
