In this interview, Jodi Chapman explores the relationship between gut health and mental distress. Jodi explains the scientific process of brain chemical synthesis in the gut and how our gut bacteria initiates the formation of proteins which make our mood hormones, dopamine, and serotonin. Along with the biochemical process of mood hormone creation, Jodi discusses the importance of certain strains of gut bacteria which we need to have present and how we can recolonize them in our digestive system. You will also learn about the benefits of fermented foods, how you can identify if your gut bacteria is out of whack and what you should be asking your health practitioner.
