When you produce serotonin in the right quantities, your thinking is clear and you feel positive and on top of things.  Too little serotonin is linked to states of depression and anxiety.

So, when you care for your gut you actually help produce more serotonin.  It’s worth putting effort into eating well for your gut’s and brain’s sake!
