What does the gut have to do with your mood?

The gut, aka “inside the belly”, has been proven to be our bodies literal “second brain”. For years, the medical world has been trying to figure out what causes our moods to change and what causes common problems that most of us face like stress, anxiety, and even depression. We know these problems are linked to serotonin, but did you know that 95% of serotonin isn’t even produced in…
