Craving Sweets? Your Gut Bacteria May be Calling the Shots
Have you ever reached for that sweet treat and wondered why it’s so hard to resist? What if I told you that the real craving might not be coming from ‘you’ at all?
The culprits of your sugar cravings are the tiny organisms residing in your gut!
There’s a fascinating science behind this phenomenon.
The Gut-Brain Axis is a remarkable communication network that links your gut flora to your mental state. Emerging research suggests that when you nourish your body with wholesome foods, your gut bacteria thrive – and so does your mood!

He also discussed how you can regain control and rebalance your gut flora, favoring those beneficial bacteria that support your health.
