Can a healthy gut help manage your anxiety?

Can a healthy gut help manage your anxiety?

According to Harvard Health, "a troubled intestine can send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person's stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That's because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected."

Recent research also suggests that mental disorders could be treated by regulating the intestinal microbiota, but there is no specific evidence to support this.¹

One very important consideration in this instance is the classic “chicken or egg” question with respect to the association between gut bacteria and poor health, in terms of which comes first.

Although there is much more research needed, what is well established is the gut-brain connection and how one affects the other. By taking care of your gut, you are also taking care of your brain and vice versa.

Taking a probiotic daily can help promote the healthy bacteria in your gut, which can in turn help improve your overall mood and mental well being, and for some even alleviate symptoms of anxiety.
