YOUR GUT HAS A SECRET THINKING OF ITS OWN
THE GUT – BRAIN CONNECTION
But, this is not all. This new discovery is expected to answer intricate questions like how does the gut calculate calories and make its choices. For instance, you are very hungry and eat two pieces of sweets before meal. The quantity of your food intake after having the sweets is comparatively lesser to if you had the meal directly minus sweets. So, that means the gut has calculated the calories the sweets had and let you eat only certain quantity of your meal rather than over eating. It has sent signals to brain to make you feel full and thereby stop intake. This indicates the gut being smarter than we already know.
The gut is actually behaving like an independent lab. We ourselves may not know the amount of calories in whatever we eat. But looks like our tummy knows our plate better. The new discovery might also help us understand several eating disorders and treating them.
GUT FEELINGS – THERE’S A SECOND BRAIN IN YOUR TUMMYHuman body in itself is a vast mystery that is yet to be decoded and learnt. The nerves and their innumerous communications are definitely an altogether different game to know. With gut having an entire neuron circuit of its own, it also raises doubts about other systems of the body having a similar connecting network with the brain. The human brain is playing tricks, well in this case…quite literally.]]>
