The Gut-Sleep Connection ๐Ÿ’คโœจ [notes]

Greetings, SLEEP optimisation seekers!ย 

Did you know that the health of your gut can impact your sleep quality? Prebiotics, which feed the good bacteria in your gut, might be the key to better rest. Here’s how…

Gut Health & Sleep:

  • The gut, our โ€˜second brain,โ€™ is linked to mood, brain function, and health.
  • Boosting gut health can improve mental and physical health.
  • Eat a varied, plant-based diet, reducing processed and sugary foods.

Prebiotics & Probiotics: ๐ŸŒฟ

  • Probiotics: Good live bacteria in the gut.
  • Prebiotics: Non-digestible fibres that feed good bacteria.
  • Studies suggest prebiotic supplements can improve sleep quality by increasing REM and NREM sleep stages.

Stress Reduction and Prebiotics:

  • Stress can lead to poor sleep; lack of sleep can cause stress.
  • Prebiotics can increase resilience to stress and promote mental wellness through the gut-brain axis.

Consider adding prebiotic-rich foods like chicory root, garlic, onions, and bananas to your diet for better sleep and a happier gut!
