Did you know that the hormone for Happiness is Serotonin?
Maybe you knew that, but you may not have known that this hormone is produced by the cells of your colon and is connected to the amount of good bacteria that is available in your intestines.
90% of this hormone’s reserve of happiness is developed in the colon and is reliant on the state of the micro-flora.
How can good bacteria influence our happiness?
The Happiness hormone; Serotonin is produced by 3 types of cells:
- Neural (neurons) and
It is the Enteroendocrine that produces most of the serotonin that you need in your body. Moreover, the available good bacteria are able to synthesize serotonin.
Maintaining the health of your colon and intestines supports the production of the enteroendocrine cells.
Serotonin is then synthesized in the human body from the amino acid tryptophan with the help of certain enzymes!
Enterdocrine cells produce enough serotonin only when there is no dysbiosis or dysbacteriosis (a term used for microbial imbalance inside the body).
For Good bacteria to survive it needs an environment that doesn’t support the pathological bacteria which lives on toxins and stagnation.
Therefore, the path to happiness lies through a healthy intestine! Natural recovery of the intestinal micro-flora is possible through the work of living bacteria, which requires a clean environment to survive.
