That Gut Feeling is Real How Gut Impacts Mood

Got that loving gut feeling ? Following that gut feeling may lead you places you don’t want to go right now. If you’ve never given thought to how your gut impacts mood, this is the time. No mood swings or lows to complain about? Stay with me. Because if you’re in midlife, it’s very likely your gut health has changed in some way. You’re experiencing bloating, or constipation and diarrhea you’ve never before experienced. And inevitably that impact your brain. 

Not to mention, if your digestion and elimination aren’t on point, you’re potentially not absorbing nutrients and your workout suffers. It’s not just what you eat but how you absorb it that matters.
