Kombucha is known to have many benefits to our health, we are discovering more as the world becomes curious about this magical tonic. The main benefits that Kombucha is becoming famous for are;
The Probiotic powers for ultimate gut happiness 🙂
So, have you heard of the gut-brain-axis, or vagus nerve? … well, we all have one, in short it transmits signals from the gut to the brain and vice versa, and nourishing it could be the key to total wellness.
Over 95% of Serotonin, the wonderful “mood boosting” hormone, is said to be created in the gut, and if we keep that gut-brain-axis in check, we’ll stand the best chance of feeling those good-mood-vibes!
The balance of nerves & hormones is crucial for good mental health & overall well-being, anyone wondering what the gut has to do with this?
Your gut & brain are connected physically by millions of nerves. Signals in the form of Neurotransmitters, are sent along these nerves, the largest being vagus nerve, which also connects to the lungs and the heart 💥
Gut cells & microbes produce many of the neurotransmitters which are sent to the brain to control our emotions. Serotonin as mentioned above & gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), for anxiety control to name a couple! 🤗
So it makes sense why your overall happiness & wellness is impacted on the sluggish, heavy, bloated days. The gut is sometimes referred to as ‘the second brain’ because of the effects spread throughout the body via the many neurotransmitters originating in the gut, why else would we get a ‘gut feeling’? By getting probiotics in your diet each day, you can bring a harmony & balance in this important gut-brain-axis ✨
Your microbiome is made up of microbes, live cultures & bacteria in your intestines, where the magic happens! Having a healthy, lively & diverse gut microbiome gives your body the ability to absorb all the nutrients from the food you eat, digest food at the right speeds & let your body run at full efficiency! Efficient digestion can also lead to better appetite / craving control, stronger immunity, heart health, & perhaps the best is improved brain health!
Make room each day for pre-biotics; like veggies, & pro-biotics; like Kombucha. A sustained balance between these will create a gut micro biome that could unleash super human powers you never knew you had!
Anyone, remember a really good day when they felt sluggish, heavy or low in energy?
