The Intestinal Microbiome and Sleep
Show Notes


The intestinal microbiome, i.e., the collection of microbes in your gastrointestinal tract, are proving to be major players in the length, quality, and content of your sleep. The intestinal microbiome can make the difference between deep, restful, dream-filled sleep, to superficial, disrupted, dreamless sleep, and all the emotional and health consequences that accompany these crucial differences.

You can take steps, including cultivation of specific microbial species, to regain wonderful, restful, dream-filled sleep by taking control over your microbiome, including cultivation of specific species that exert effects over sleep.
