TMHS 174: Good Sleep Nutrients And The Gut-Brain-Sleep Connection
There are tons of great tips out there making waves for improving your sleep quality. Many of these tips are life-changing. But for some people, sleeping in a cooler, darker, tech-free room, might not be enough.
I have to say, I was absolutely floored when I found out just how much our gut health impacts our sleep quality. I believe this to be the missing key for millions of people struggling with sleep issues who are only seeing slight improvements with the popular sleep-health tips out there.
Realizing this is where many of the most common sleep issues are rooted, I felt it was a MUST to create a masterclass on it so that you know the ins and outs of this amazing gut-brain-sleep connection.
In this episode you’ll discover:
- Why your gut is often referred to as “the second brain”.
- Which neurotransmitter found in the gut has a profound influence on your mood.
- How a specific sleep hormone precursor also enhances your digestion.
- The shocking amount of melatonin that’s found in your gut.
- How your gut actually tells your brain what to do (and not the other way around).
- How bacteria in your gut can influence your sleep quality.
- Which common things can destroy your gut microbiome.
- What every long-living culture uses to support their microbiome.
- Why probiotic supplements won’t work without another key component.
- How changing your sleep schedule can change your gut bacteria.
- What decision we need to make when Netflix is calling our name.
- Which good sleep nutrients you need to eat each day.
- How your circadian timing system regulates your digestion.
- Which digestive issues are intimately connected to sleep.
- The shocking impact that nighttime artificial light has on your digestion.
- Why the timing of your evening meals can make or break your health.
- Which sleeping positions are the best and worst for common digestive issues.
