Over the years, we have learned what we do or what we are exposed to also influences our gut microbiota. Gut microbiota can influence a number of health factors: genetics, stress, exercise, nutrition, age and more. As ongoing research gains interest and momentum, there are many reasons to consume probiotic and prebiotic supplements.
Did you know we have the opportunity to regenerate our brain cells as we age? Nerves, brain cells, and networking patterns storing and retrieving information occurs substantially after birth, continuing through the juvenile and adolescent years, and into young adulthood. By the time we reach mature adulthood it was assumed the level of new nerve production began a progressive decline.1 However, technical advances over the past several decades have proven otherwise. Now, there is almost universal acceptance in the scientific community some nerve cells can continually generate into adulthood and be added to established nerve networks.1
