The Human Upgrade Podcast titled
“Probiotics to Power the Gut-Brain Axis”
A healthy gut microbiome (the world of billions of bacteria in our intestines) is foundational for health and longevity. Our good gut bacteria influence many critical functions in the body, including digestion, nutrient absorption, the immune system, and brain function.
The gut is often called the “second brain.” The gut and the brain stand in constant communication with one another. Our good gut bacteria play an active role in this communication. For example, our good gut bacteria help produce 95% of our happiness hormone serotonin, as well as short-chain fatty acids like butyrate which are essential for brain function.
Also, the gut and liver are directly connected. When the gut is damaged, toxins seep through to the liver, and disrupt the function of this important detoxification organ.
Stress, processed foods, specific medications, and other factors deplete our gut microbiome on a daily basis, triggering an inflammatory response in the body. When the gut is inflamed, the gut barrier becomes “leaky,” and toxins can seep into the bloodstream and move onward to other organs. The immune system responds to this influx of toxins, which triggers more inflammation in the body. This imbalance in the gut microbiome can manifest as digestive issues, fatigue, brain fog, a weaker immune system, and other acute and chronic disease.
Taking a high-quality probiotic supplement will restore and maintain a healthy gut microbiome, and help you feel and perform your best.
Dave’s Favorite Probiotic Formulations
Omni-Biotic Stress Release
Stress Management Psychobiotic
“More and more studies have come out that show that specific strains can affect neurotransmitter levels and inflammation in the brain. So, this emerging category of psychobiotics is interesting. You stack that with a delivery system that works. And I think Omni-Biotic has a really interesting new focused thing.”
– Dave Asprey
Gut-Liver Axis Probiotic
“A big part of what helped me lose 100 pounds was getting my liver and my gut working so that when toxins made it past my gut, which they always do, the liver was there to handle it…My belief is that huge numbers of people think they have an anxiety problem or a stress problem, but they have a gut and a toxin problem, which is why I’m leaning towards Hetox.”
