We all know just how debilitating an upset tummy can be. But I learned a lot from this video (and article) by Drew Canole about just how strong a link there is from our gut health to our moods, energy levels and our feelings of wellbeing (or otherwise!).
Drew explains the links from unhealthy gut leading to shortage of seratonin, which in turn produces feelings of depression, and lethargy.
The good news is that Drew doesn’t stop there. He discusses 7 tips & strategies to improve your gut health. (By the way, no. 2 = juicing daily.)
Watch the video below for an interesting and educational presentation. It just might help.
See below for the “Sunshine in a Cup” juice recipe Drew mentions (In the video around 8:40.)
