[Discovered] The BEST Way to END Depression
When doctors try to figure out the underlying cause of depression, they usually look for what’s going wrong in your brain.
But they’re looking in the wrong place.
According to the latest research, there’s another part of the body that plays a major role in depression – and it has nothing to do with what’s going on in your head.
This discovery could help you END your depression for good.
And the best part? You can get started today!
Your gut is finally starting to get the attention it deserves.
Research shows that higher gut diversity is linked to lower chronic disease – which shouldn’t be surprising sinceover 70% of your immune system lies in your gut!
More recently, numerous studies establish a link between the population of bacteria living in your gut (called the microbiome) and mental health.
Now, a study recently published in the journal Nature Microbiology was the first human study to dig deeper into what could be causing the link.
After examining over 1,000 people who had their gut bacteria genetically sequenced, the researchers found that people who have less of two specific bacteria are much more likely to be suffering from depression.
The two bacteria in question are Dialister and Coprococcus.
Interestingly, both of these bacteria are known for producing an anti-inflammatory compound called butyrate – and more and more studies have connected depression to chronic inflammation.
This kind of study doesn’t determine an exact cause and effect – it merely shows that the connection is there.
But it’s interesting to note that two other studies that collect data on the microbiome found the same two bacteria missing from people with depression.
Ok, so now what?
The answer is in creating a more diverse gut microbiome.
And the best thing you can do to improve your gut health is to eat whole, natural food – and to STOP eating processed,sugar-laden crap.
Also, make sure you’re getting plenty of omega-3s. Studies show that people who have higher levels of omega-3s have more diversity in their gut bacteria.
