The intestines and brain are closely related, and this interaction plays an important role not only in the functioning of the digestive system, but also in some aspects of the psyche and emotional reactions.
Almost every person in a stressful situation experiences an upset stomach or other digestive ailments. Have you ever wondered why this is happening? Neurobiological studies of this exchange of information between the brain and the intestines revealed the existence of a complex, two-way communication system demonstrating mutual interaction between the brain and intestines.
This mysterious mechanism of information exchange has a significant impact on maintaining the homeostasis of the digestive system and proper digestion, as well as on the system of motivation and higher cognitive functions. In addition, the dysfunction of this system is the cause of a whole range of disorders, including functional disorders and gastrointestinal infections, obesity and eating disorders. Signals sent by organs affect the body and its various functions:
- Central nervous system – controls the majority of body and brain functions. It consists of the brain and spinal cord, which is responsible for the movement of the muscles, pain receptors, motor activities, etc.
- Enteric nervous system – one of the main parts of the nervous system. These are nerve fibers that are found in the organs of the digestive system and intestines.
- Endocrine system – a set of hormone-producing glands that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, mood, etc.
- The immune system – consists of a network of cells, tissues and organs that work to protect the body. The most important are white blood cells and immunological factors that collectively seek and destroy organisms and pathogens.
- Autonomic nervous system – part of the nervous system that regulates the functioning of vital organs, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, bladder.
- The pituitary gland and adrenal glands – the central stress response system.
- Intestinal bacteria and their metabolism products – healthy microorganisms that are necessary for the proper functioning of the intestines – are beneficial to the intestinal mucosa and improve the physiology of the gastrointestinal tract, which has a positive effect on the central nervous system. If the intestines will be inhabiting harmful bacteria, then the work of the digestive tract will be disturbed, and the toxins produced by these bacteria will negatively affect the central nervous system.
Through this communication network, which transmits information in both directions, signals from the brain affect the motor, sensory and secretory function of the digestive tract and messages sent from the digestive system affect the functions of the brain.
The health of the digestive system is the health of the whole organism.
