Sleep And The Gut

We've all heard that we should get 6-8 hours of sleep every night. Sufficient sleep can help eliminate brain fog, help maintain weight, and cut down on stress, but does it also impact your gut health? Studies show that might be the case.

The Gut-Brain Connection

Science is showing us that the gut and brain are more connected than we ever knew. Our gut microbiome can often determine our cognitive function and mental health. If you suffer from depression or anxiety that disrupts your sleep, this problem could be coming from the gut. 

Hormone Regulation

Sleep helps to replenish hormones that are naturally occurring in our body like serotonin and melatonin. If you're struggling with sleep, these hormones might not be properly replenishing which may be impacting sleep. 

Immune System

It's no surprise that a weakened immune system may cause sleep disruptions. If you have recently taken antibiotics your gut flora may be imbalanced, making it difficult to get consistent sleep. 

Additional Factors

Circadian Rhythm: This is an internal process that regulates our sleep-wake cycle. Identifying your body's natural sleep and wake triggers can help increase your sleep quality.

Evening Routine: If you stay on your phone or watch tv and snacks before bed, you might be having difficulty sleeping. Try to create a technology-free evening routine to help you wind down naturally.  

Probiotics and Sleep

Taking probiotics has been found to aid in the quality of mood and sleep. Participants in the 2019 study reported a 'reduction in depressive mood state, anger, and fatigue, and an improvement in sleep quality.'

Scientists continue to study the connection between gut and sleep. However, getting 6-8 hours a night can improve overall health!
