TMHS 174: Good Sleep Nutrients And The Gut-Brain-Sleep Connection

on Tuesday, 13 September 2016. Posted in The Model Health Show, Recently Added


There are tons of great tips out there making waves for improving your sleep quality. Many of these tips are life-changing. But for some people, sleeping in a cooler, darker, tech-free room, might not be enough.


I have to say, I was absolutely floored when I found out just how much our gut health impacts our sleep quality. I believe this to be the missing key for millions of people struggling with sleep issues who are only seeing slight improvements with the popular sleep-health tips out there.


Realizing this is where many of the most common sleep issues are rooted, I felt it was a MUST to create a masterclass on it so that you know the ins and outs of this amazing gut-brain-sleep connection.

  • Which neurotransmitter found in the gut has a profound influence on your mood.
  • How a specific sleep hormone precursor also enhances your digestion.
  • The shocking amount of melatonin that’s found in your gut.
  • How your gut actually tells your brain what to do (and not the other way around).
  • How bacteria in your gut can influence your sleep quality.
  • Which common things can destroy your gut microbiome.
