Over the weekend, I was on KTLA and gave a 5 minute talk on your second brain. The gut is sometimes referred to as the body’s “second brain” because it creates so many neurotransmitting chemicals responsible for mood. I explain the importance of the gut-brain connection and its impact on health.
The number one thing I mentioned is to eat more fiber. It’s best to get fiber from your diet, but most Americans fall short of the daily requirement of 25 to 35 grams. My recommendation is to try Sunfiber, a soluble fiber supplement that is less likely to cause gas or bloating than most of the fibers on the market. Amare’s MentaBiotics combines the prebiotic fiber of Sunfiber with probiotics and phytobiotics designed to optimize mental wellness via the gut brain connection.
