Probiotics Can Help with Brain Health!

Uncategorized Apr 19, 2021

By: Jennifer Brindley RD, LDN

Have you ever heard about how the gut and brain are connected? Well, they are! The gut and brain are connected through the vagus nerve. If our gut doesn’t have the right number of good bacteria within it, it can cause inflammation. The inflammation that’s present can lead to things like a “feeling of depression” in the body and or set up the stage for some type of dis-ease. 

If our current diet is primarily filled with lots of packaged and processed type foods, then it may be safe to say that we could have a lack of good bacteria in our gut.  The problem is that when we eat too many foods that are high in refined sugars this can lead to what is called "leaky gut syndrome."

Getting Plenty of Sleep Can Help Prevent Weight Gain

Uncategorized Apr 11, 2021

Sleeping a full 8 hours every night isn't going to result in weight loss by itself but it can help your body from gaining unwanted pounds.

When we eat something very sweet, our brain really likes that and want us to continue doing so. With a repeated pattern of this habit, our own natural dopamine receptors begin to diminish leaving you to rely on sugar and other modes of ‘pleasure’. (hence the addictive quality). We are all born with 5 dopamine receptors with their modes focusing on impulse control, mood, attention, regulation of renal function and locomotion. When we consume copious amounts of sugar, our brain senses that as pleasure because it tastes so good, and the more that we consume, the less natural dopamine we have and then our body has to solely rely on external sources of dopamine to keep getting that ‘pleasure/fix’; aka the sugar. Similarly, to alcoholism, the body starts to rely on sugar...
