Although their conversations are silent, they are no less important. Our gut (thanks to its nervous system) and the brain are connected and constantly exchange information. Silent conversations, of course, but from which you benefit… or suffer the result.
You are hungry, you eat; then you are full, and you stop eating. When you are stressed, you have a disturbed gut and sometimes cravings; or you are happy, and you feel very light. This proofs that our gut and our brain are talking to each other. And we also know that our microbiota is participating in these conversations.
