Gut Feelings

At work, we talk about the gut a lot. I mean, a lot. Lately there have been some really interesting resources about gut health and how to approach it. I thought I would share some of my favorite resources with those who are interested (I hope you are because it is so important and so fascinating!).

NPR recently did a story called: Gut Bacteria Might Guide The Workings Of Our Minds. It addresses how bacteria in our bodies could effect our brains. What they found out about probiotics and anxiety is really cool! 

I have been listening to the Gluten Summit on my way home from work and I am loving it. One fact that has stuck with me from Mark Hyman’s talk was that eating two slices of whole wheat bread increases your blood sugar more than 2 tablespoons of sugar.

This article discusses that if pregnant mothers are stressed, it could effect their baby’s gut and brain health.

I know this one is crazy and maybe taking it too far for some of you. I will just say two words and you can click on the link or not: Poop Pills.
