The connection between our gut health and our sleep quality is a real thing! 🌙 I know that sleep seems impossible when your newborn babe is crying every hour of the night, or when you’re stressing out over the big interview tomorrow. BUT. Remember the big M word that's all the buzz these days? MICROBIOME?! What even is that and what does that have to do with sleep!? 😴
Microbiome is the trillions of bacteria living in and on your body that are so important to your overall health - scientists have dubbed their collective ecosystem — called the microbiome — another human organ. 🤯 What’s amazing about your microbiome is that it’s responsible for so many life supporting functions within your body; from regulating your immune system and supporting your metabolism to optimizing your digestion, balancing your moods, and yes…even helping you SLEEP.
Nourishing your microbiome with essential nutrients is key to a better night’s rest, beyond sleeping more hours and improving our nighttime shutdown routine. Healing our gut, and getting it the specific nutrients and minerals it may be lacking, can help us, even with sleep quality!!! There is 400 times more melatonin in our gut than in our pineal gland (the brain). 🧠 That's why nourishing your microbiome with essential nutrients is key to a better night's rest! Hello plexus, goodbye restless nights. 🙌🏼
