The phrase “Gut Feeling” is used commonly and involves some sort of  intuitive yet inexplicable understanding. Is our gut feeling similar to pure intuition or can it also have some sort of a physical connection of mind and gut? It is believed that our gut feelings are a combination of gut bacteria communicating directly to our brain via chemical messengers in the blood and the gut neurons. Interesting, isn’t it? 

We all know that the human body needs regular replenishment through food to ensure optimal functioning.
