We have known about the role of the gut in mental health disorders for a long time…

In fact, in the early 19th century both doctors and patients were familiar with the concept that the health of the gut and brain were deeply connected. Numerous texts from the 19th century describe the gut as the 'sensorium of organic life,' 'the great nervous centre' and 'the great abdominal brain.'

Supporting the gut microbiome to improve mental health could simply involve adding one more colourful plant food to your plate each day!
