Half of all United States citizens will be diagnosed with a mental illness within their lifetime, and chances are that their doctor will prescribe them a pharmaceutical to ‘treat’ the condition. Of course the antipsychotic or anti-depressant drugs that the doctor prescribes can ultimately lead to suicidal thoughts, type 2 diabetes, and an overall shortened lifespan. In addition, new research has shown that your mental health is actually influenced by your gut health.

The role of bacteria in your gut goes way beyond the stomach and intestines, majorly affecting the state of your brain. A disruption in natural gut bacteria can easily result in symptoms of mental illness, as research has shown using lab mice. Changes in the normal gut flora of the mice led to both behavioral and cognitive changes, making them less timid and more adventurous. Very similar to the symptoms of ADHD, where children start to misbehave seemingly-abruptly.

“It may be that those changes in gut bacteria not only contribute to the generation of gut symptoms, like diarrhea or pain, but may also contribute to this altered behavior that we see in those patients,” said researcher Stephen Collins.

So how can you restore and maintain your gut health to ensure that you have optimum mental health and clarity?

1. Eliminate or severely limit sugar consumption

Inflammation is the most common cause of poor digestion and overall gut health. Sugar is a leading cause of inflammation, with the average American consuming 100 grams of sugar each day in the form of high-fructose corn syrup. Of course, 50% of high fructose corn syrup has also been found to contain toxic mercury, which will wreak havoc on your body. Sugar will also feed the yeast and bad bacteria in the intestinal tract, leading to an imbalance between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ forms of gut bacteria. When you have too much ‘bad’ bacteria, digestive conditions arise.

Limit your sugar consumption to 16 grams per day or less and watch your gut health drastically improve along with your mental health and clarity.
