Our gut is often referred to as our second brain – this is because the gut and brain are directly connected by a long nerve called the vagus nerve. Our gut and brain use this nerve to send each other messages – no wonder you get that ‘butterflies in your stomach’ feeling when you’re stressed or anxious!
Our gut impacts so many other areas of our health – it’s where we absorb nutrients from the food we consume, it’s home to 70% of our immune system, and plays an important role in training our immune system to help protect us from illness. Our gut can even impact our mood – the bugs that live in our gut produce 95% of our body’s serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter you may know as the ‘happy hormone’.
Here at The Culture Co, we’re passionate about gut health. We create products that will give you a good gut feeling by ensuring that all our products contain ingredients that are scientifically proven and backed by research, to provide real health benefits. We’re the daily dose that does you good.*
That’s why we’re so excited to partner with The Gut Foundation; they share our love for gut health! The Gut Foundation does medical research to better understand the causes of gut problems, better methods of prevention and treatment, and is continually educating the public on the latest findings.
