https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gut%E2%80%93brain_axis>The gut–brain axis is the biochemical signaling that takes place between the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) and the central nervous system (CNS). The term "gut–brain axis" is occasionally used to refer to the role of the gut flora in the interplay as well, whereas the term "microbiome–gut–brain axis" explicitly includes the role of gut flora in the biochemical signaling events that take place between the GI tract and CNS.
So the types of microbes in your gut can affect your brain. Does anyone know of any nootropic strains of probiotics?
No idea about what kind of microbes would be the best. I remember something about there being enough neurons lining the gut to give gut feelings.

Do you have source on that? It's not that I don't believe you, but that sounds like an interesting read.
Just looked it up and I'm mistaken about being solely responsible for 'gut feelings' more of a cross and interaction of nervous systems.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enteric_nervous_system
So the digestive system neurons are roughly the total amount in 2/3rds of a cat.
Not even including the microbial biome interaction. Some of the bacteria and stuff also produce enzymes and neurotransmitters and aid in the breakdown of food.https://www.ket.org/health/intestinal-biome-gut-together/
Also the microbial gene expression and population changes very fast.https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-guts-microbiome-changes-diet/
It looks like proper gut biome at the start (vaginal seeding and breast feeding) (not destroying it all with anti-bacterial medication) reduces the chance of obesity, and allergies.
Just from a quick search, but it looks like most researchers onky have a rough idea on what is going on with specific strains of bacteria.
The best guess is maximize different foods and eat fermented foods.>In before eating pussy and ass a day cures obesity and allergies. (Fecal transplants Do work though.) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fecal_bacteriotherapy
(People also can do it themselves apparently...)(Saline solution and poo in a reverse enema)
I wonder how the microbiome of a genius compares to the microbiome of the average person.
>>906>nootropic strains of probioticshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clostridium_sporogenes
thats the only one i know the exact name of, but also look for butyrate-producing bacteria. I know for a fact that the probiotics commonly found in yoghurt, kombucha, kimchi etc are worthless and do nothing for your health except, for better or worse, take up space that would otherwise be taken up by other bacteria. unless you are going to be taking some exotic probiotic such as above mentioned, its not worth it. gut bacteria makes up a majority of the DNA in your body, there is no benefit in making it all faggy kombucha bacteria.>plus obligatory eat lots of fibre
