The Gut-Brain Axis

Just the Basics

The gut-brain axis is a bidirectional network comprised of the gut microbiome, the central and enteric nervous systems, the immune system, and the HPA axis. Gut microbes influence the brain by strengthening the gut barrier, modulating inflammation, and supporting balanced neurotransmitter production.
