In the human body, the gut microbiome influences communication between the central nervous system and the enteric nervous system that runs along the gastrointestinal tract. An unbalanced gut microbiome can cause brain fog and mood disorders. Furthermore, leaky gut syndrome can lead to inflammation anywhere in the body. A healthy diet and lifestyle can prevent these problems, and supplements can help as well. To support the gut, prebiotics, probiotics and glutamine are beneficial, as are collagen and zinc carnosine. Other supplements benefit the brain. These include omega-3 fatty acids, curcumin and magnesium L-threonate.
- Both prebiotics – found in asparagus, beans, onions and apple skins – and probiotics – found in sauerkraut and kimchi – support gut health.
- Glutamine, collagen and zinc carnosine supplements can also improve gut function.
- For brain health, omega-3 fatty acids, curcumin, and magnesium L-threonate are effective supplements.
“About 80% of the information is along the afferent pathway; because digestion occurs autonomically, far less information needs to travel along the efferent pathway. Information about changes in the gut microbiome is sent to the CNS; signals from the CNS influence the gut’s autonomic functions. Similarly, bacterial metabolites stimulate enterochromaffin cells (ECCs) to produce 95% of the body’s serotonin in the gut.”
