Are you dealing with brain fog? Lack of energy to get going for the day?
Did you know that your gut can affect both of those things?

First of all, over 90% of your body’s serotonin (your body’s neurotransmitter that plays several roles in your body including influencing learning, memory, happiness as well as regulating body temperature, sleep, sexual behavior, and hunger) is made by your gut microbiome. When the gut ecosystem isn’t in balance it can cause brain fog and even depression.

An unhealthy gut can lead to an unhealthy brain.

So, how do we work on healing our gut?

First, if you are not taking a probiotic—that is the MOST important thing you need to be taking right now if you are dealing with brain fog. A probiotic helps maintain a healthy microbiome.

Second, what are you putting inside your body? What foods are you eating? Is coffee the first thing you reach for in the morning?

Let me challenge you. Drink a glass of water in the morning FIRST. Even better if you put a drop or two of Lemon Vitality essential oil in it. Water is essential for keeping your gut healthy. It keeps your gastrointestinal system functioning well. Water also helps promote the balance of good bacteria.

And good news!

Taking a probiotic and drinking enough water can also help improve the amount of energy you have!

Many times, we are sold a lot of solutions for our brain fog and lack of energy when really it can be as simple as taking care of your gut and drinking water.
I want you to have enough energy and clarity to be able to not just fully embrace your daily life but to complete all the things you need to. You are capable of such amazing things and what you have to give is greatly needed. Taking care of our health allows us to have an abundant overflow of goodness that can impact the lives of those who are around us.

Go drink your water! You deserve a life of clarity and energy!

As far as a probiotic, my favorite is Life 9 from Young Living!

Life 9 is a highly potent probiotic with 17 billion live cultures from nine beneficial bacteria strains to support healthy immune function, maintain optimal metabolism, and promote normal intestinal function (and keep our brains healthy!).
