There is a connection between our face and our base:

Yes. How happy we keep our mental health decides how good our tummy will function. Our mind and body are closely related to each other. One thing has a direct impact on the other. Studies say that if we are mentally sound, we are likely to be safe with respect to physical strength.

New research on mind and stomach relation shows that by staying happy and less-stressed, we can keep stomach issues at shore. A journal named ‘Cell Host & Microbe’ published a study that shows that happiness helps in inhibiting pathogenic bacteria in the stomach which boosts gut health.

When we feel happy, a chemical called serotonin is released by the brain. Serotonin is responsible for keeping pathogenic bacteria away from the intestine. It is the only reason why when you are happy, you are highly unlikely to get troubled by a stomach issue.

This research is a big breakthrough in the treatment of stomach related ailments. Also, the research says that there is a deep connection between Serotonin and Gut health.

We have seen about Serotonin. But, what is gut health?

Gut health refers to the balance of microorganisms that live in the digestive tract. Looking after the health of the gut and maintaining the right balance of these microorganisms are vital for physical and mental health, immunity, and more.

So, now we got the best way to prevent stomach problems? Yes. By staying happy we can do that. Also, staying happy is the easiest solution to escape from gastrointestinal issues. There are trillions of live bacteria residing in our gut.

While most of the gut bacteria are good, there are some that are pathogenic which trouble stomach health and cause fatal infections. Serotonin is a brain chemical that is released when a person is happy. The research has found that the release of serotonin establishes a positive relationship between the mind and stomach.

Words from the lead researcher:

The lead researcher of the study Vanessa Sperandio from UT Southwestern Medical Centre said: “Although the vast majority of research on serotonin has centered on its effects in the brain, about 90 % of this neurotransmitter–a chemical that nerve cells use to communicate with each other–is produced in the gastrointestinal tract.”

So, what are you looking at so seriously? Laugh for no reason. Be happy for no reason.
