Finding The Balance Between Gut Health and Stress, Energy Levels, Mood and Sleep

Category: Dietary Supplements

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact society, concern for overall health has become a priority in addition to general immune support and other more targeted goals.

This broader approach to health will likely persist well into the new normal and beyond, with support for stress relief, mood, restful sleep, brain function, eye health and gut health set to play a lasting role in healthier habits.

With that in mind, Deerland has crafted a variety of condition-specific solutions aimed at translating a healthier gut into better overall health and well-being.

The Link Between Gut Health and Overall Well-Being

The neural, endocrine and immune systems form what’s known as the “gut-brain axis,” a pathway that allows for communication between the brain and gut and for a link that intertwines the health of the two.

A study published in “frontiers in Psychiatry” explored this connection and how  modifying a person’s microbial environment could elevate overall health, reporting that “overall, probiotics intake was noted to exert a positive effect on depressive mood state and sleep quality.”

In fact, the “exploratory study [showed] an improvement across time in different aspect of the profile of mood state, like sad mood, anger and fatigue only in healthy individuals which took probiotics.”

Put simply, adding probiotics to the routine of healthy individuals helped elevate their mood and promote quality sleep, which positively impacts stress and energy levels and more.

How Probiotics and Gut Health Elevate Overall Health and Mood

Probiotics exhibit many beneficial effects in those who utilize them, including:

– Strengthening and reinforcing the body’s immune system

– Aiding in digestion

– Helping ease commons issues like diarrhea and bloating

However, this new link between probiotics and gut health and mental well-being and mood is also producing promising effects.

In general, research shows that gastrointestinal irritation might signal the central nervous system to alter mood. It follows, then, that encouraging healthy gut changes using probiotics could lead to similar mood alterations, but for the better.

This could play a critical role in the health of a large segment of society, as research indicates that up to 30-40% of the population experiences some form of functional bowel problem.

While there’s still more to learn about the intricacies of the gut-brain axis, probiotics seem to have a key role to play in the future of both overall health and treatment of sleep and mood disorders.

How Deerland Supports this Journey toward Better Sleep, Mood and Energy
