Brain health and gut health are closely related. Your gut has it’s own separate nervous system, often called the “second brain” or formally, the enteric nervous system. The health of the enteric nervous system tells us a lot about the health of the brain in your head.
Ideally, following a healthy and well-balanced diet should provide your body with all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs for optimum health. However, even with our best efforts there are some key nutrients that most people simply are not getting enough of without incorporating nutritional supplements.
