The Mind is the most powerful tool that we have.
And there is a direct connection with your Brain and Gut so much so that our guts are literally our second brain. (Enteric nervous system)
Nourish it with nootropic herbs and /or fungi.
A lot of people are so fixated on Ashwaghanda however, there are so many other nootropic herbs out there that you can add to your dishes, drink as teas, tinctures, or smoothies.
Preferably tea and adding to your diet.
Definitely supermushrooms like Lions Mane are by far one of my favorites and a tincture that I create.
There are studies that show that lions mane helps to support nerve and cellular growth and repair which is rare for nerve endings to do.
By this Lions Mane has been used for folks who suffer dementia or have early onslaught of it by increasing cognition and supporting memory retention.
You can cook with it as well. It is high in protein and serves as a great meat replacement. (22 g of protein per 100 g of dry mushroom. That’s equal to or more than one glass of a protein shake.) It’s also high in antioxidants, amino acids, and is immunomodulating by aiding immune support within the intestines.
Why is this important?
The intestines play a major part in naturally supporting our immune system through support of our MICROBIOME. 70% of our immune cells are hosted within our guts.
This is why it’s important to have a healthy gut. DIS- ease is rooted within the foods that you eat.
Your gut and intestines act as a filtration system and helps to eliminate toxins from entering the bloodstream.
Lions Mane is a natural prebiotic and helps to nourish and feed the GOOD BACTERIA of your Microbiome so that they can continue to filter out the good from the bad bacteria/toxins that you ingest.
