Listen to your gut!
Scientists now know that your digestive system speaks to the brain in the same way the brain talks to the rest of the body. In fact, 90 per cent of info flowing through the body's main nerve (a.k.a. the vagus nerve) is from the intestine to the brain, not vice versa. Even more surprising, 95 per cent of the body's seratonin, a neurotransmitter that affects mood and sleep, comes from your colon.
