In this show you'll learn:
- How bacteria in your digestive system may influence your moods, behavior, and feelings
- The real truth about how the way you digest your food influences your brain
- How your stomach acid affects the chemical communication system in your brain
If you've ever “gone with your gut” to make a decision or felt “butterflies in your stomach” when nervous, you're likely getting signals from an unexpected source: your second brain. Hidden in the walls of the digestive system, this “brain in your gut” is revolutionizing medicine's understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health, and even the way you think.
Scientists call this little brain the enteric nervous system (ENS). And it's not so little. The ENS is two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells lining your gastrointestinal tract from esophagus to rectum.
