The Surprising Link Between Your Gut Biome and Your Motivation to Exercise
Staying active and motivated to exercise can become increasingly challenging as we age. However, recent research suggests gut bacteria may play a much bigger role in getting us going than previously thought
A recent study discovered that the key to unlocking peak performance and motivation may lie in your gut!
Two superstar bacteria, Eubacterium rectale and Coprococcus eutactus, have been identified as producing fatty acid amides (FAAs). These powerful little compounds stimulate the CB1 endocannabinoid receptors in your gut, leading to increased dopamine release in the motivation-controlling regions of your brain.
And the best part? You can boost the levels of these bacteria in your gut simply by eating a diet rich in fibre, probiotics, and other gut-healthy foods. But it's not just about the science - it's about results!
