How Your “Second brain” Is Linked to Your Health


The hormones and other substances produced in the brain affect the condition of the whole body. If you feel well or tired, joyful or depressed then it will have its effect on your brain and it will start producing different substances which can either make you feel even worse or can totally change your mood and health condition. But do you know about your “second brain” (the gut brain) and where it is located?

The “hormones” of happiness

When your brain produces neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin etc. you can experience some pleasant emotions, to feel happy and inspired. On the contrary, if their levels change, you might suddenly start feeling down or even sad. Conditions like depression and anxiety are linked to extremely low levels of serotonin and oxytocin. Your energy levels also very much depends on the serotonin levels in your body. However, it not only your brain that is responsible for the production of these chemicals which makes all feel that good. Surprisingly, most of the serotonin is not produced in your brain but in your “second brain” located in the gut.

The “second brain”

After many researches, it was found out that we all have a second brain which controls as much as our physical and mental functions as the brain the head, or even more. Now it is more obvious how there is a key link between the modern diseases and our lifestyle, from obesity, cardiovascular to depression and autoimmune conditions. The bacteria that live in the gut are responsible for the digestion of certain foods, production of some vitamins and hormones, even the blood sugar and cholesterol levels. All the bacteria in the gut form the microbiome of every person which acts as a “second brain”. Most of these bacteria are given to the newborn child by the mother during the birth process. However, the balance of the “good” and “bad” bacteria depends on the lifestyle, food, emotional state, activity etc.

Your gut condition and your health

There are millions of neurons in the gut which are connected to the brain through the vagus nerve. This means, they are linked to the millions of neurons located in the brain which control thousands of functions in your body. So, the condition of your gut and the balance of the bacteria living there will directly communicate with the brain and from there with each and every cell in your body. In fact, the whole immune system is centralized in the gut and each imbalance can cause abnormal reactions in the body. The low immunity can cause hormonal imbalances, chronic diseases and can even affect the brain health.

Mental issues

When we talk about the neurotransmitters like serotonin which makes us feel good, 90 percent of it is actually produced in the gut. Only less than ten percent is produced in the brain. Many mental issues or emotional imbalances like depression and anxiety are stimulated by your gut health. The microbiome might not necessarily be the root cause of the mental disorders but the condition of the gut will make the imbalance even worse if you lack certain bacteria.
