Successful Sleep Through Gut Health

Most people may not understand that the sleep as well as the gut are all interrelated. Now many of our body’s neurotransmitters which regulate sleep are made in the gut, or many of its precursors are.

This is Dr. Lam, founder of And today’s topic is about the sleep series and its relationship to the gut as well as microbiome factors. A large part of serotonin which makes us feel good starts its production well ahead of the brain. It starts actually in the gut. So having a healthy gut really is a very conducive and positive factor for sleep. Irritated bowel, on the other hand, can lead to a gut dysfunction. And when that happens the neurotransmitters can be off balance and sleep can be a problematic problem.

Now sleep problem can be what we call sleep onset insomnia, where you have problem falling asleep, or sleep maintenance insomnia, where you wake up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. Both can be related to irritated bowel and gastric dysfunction. So the microbiome, which governs the bacteria inside our body, makes many of these neurotransmitters. So having the right amount of probiotics, enzymes, anti-inflammatory compounds such as fish oil, can stabilize the gut. The hormone DHEA, as well as pantetheine, as well as glutamine are also some natural compounds that can be helpful to stabilize a irritable bowel.

Once a bowel is in good health then most people will experience a better sleep.
