How Gut Bacteria Affects The Brain And Body

By | source:Huffington Post May 2nd, 2015

Recent studies suggest bacteria in our digestive tract can play a large role in our overall health. Depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, obesity, cancer and irritable bowel syndrome are just a few of the major complications gut bacteria can create.

With over 5,000 species of bacteria living in the gut, we have a mix of good and bad microbes. Helicobacter Pylori causes ulcers, while Lactobacilli may ward off stress and anxiety.

Keeping a healthy digestive system is very important. Taking probiotics daily is one of the best solutions to achieve your health goals.
