Inside your gut is what scientists call your enteric nervous system - your second brain! Your intestinal microbiome is a collection of bacteria, yeasts, and viruses that live in your gut and do an enormous amount of work to keep you healthy.
A growing body of evidence has shown two-way signaling between the gut and the brain. This includes multiple neuro and endocrine signal mechanisms. Changes to the gut microbiome affect brain health.
