How digestive problems may be putting your child at risk, compromising their health and keeping them from reaching their full mental and physical potential.
Have you ever wondered why your child behaves the way they do?
Are you frustrated at their lack of focus or their inability to follow even the simplest instructions?
What about their health?
Do your kids tend to get sick a lot?
Do they seem to always be fighting a cold or the flu?
If so, then pay CLOSE attention to what I am about to tell you.
Because if you’ve ever doubted your effectiveness as a parent or if you worry that you’re not doing enough to nurture your child’s mental and social development…
Then I’ve got news for you.
It’s NOT your fault.
You see over the past few years there have been MAJOR advances in the fields of Neuroscience, Immunology, Gastroenterology and Psychiatry.
And the biggest benefit to these advances is a better understanding of the connection between the gut, the brain and human behavior.
Especially in children.
And scientists researching conditions like Autism, ADHD and other behavioral disorders affecting children are starting to take a closer look at this connection.
Because, it appears that gut health is a MAJOR factor when it comes to learning, emotional stability and social interaction.
From the time they’re born kids are filled with curiosity.
Their brains are primed for learning and they acquire new skills with ease.
They also experience a wide variety of behaviors and emotions.
And in the midst of all this development it’s not uncommon for parents to feel as if their kids are on a never-ending emotional roller coaster.
One minute they’re happy, content and well behaved then the next minute they’re upset, frustrated and defiant.
But new research suggests that your children may not be completely responsible or in control of all that bad behavior.
So what is in control?
What is potentially behind all those meltdowns and tantrums?
New research says it’s most likely their digestive systems – their guts.
And scientists are NOW discovering that the trillions of microbes residing in your child’s gut – could very well be influencing their behavior and altering their brains.
These trillions of microbes are collectively called the microbiome.
And the microbiome is made up of all the bacteria (both good and bad) in the body.
In an ideal situation 85% of that bacteria are what are called probiotics.
Probiotics are good bacteria that help regulate digestion, improve nutrient absorption, supercharge the immune system, boost metabolic activity and influence emotions.
The gut also happens to be home to the largest population of bacteria in the ENTIRE body.
You’re probably familiar with the term “gut feeling.”
Well, as it turns out the microbes in your gut are in constant communication with your brain through an important nerve called the Vagus nerve.
The Vagus nerve is a cranial nerve that originates in the brainstem and extends all the way down into the abdomen.
And not only do these microbes utilize the Vagus nerve to communicate with the brain but these same microbes are also responsible for creating many of the neurotransmitters used by the brain to relay nerve impulses throughout your body.
This connection is SO strong some probiotics have been classified as psychobiotics due to their effect on mood and behavior.
That’s because psychobiotics can produce the chemicals serotonin and GABA which have a calming and soothing effect on the brain.
There’s also other types of bacteria that produce stress-relieving effects on the body by increasing oxytocin levels in the body and reducing cortisol.
Said another way, these microbes have a direct effect on the intensity of your emotions.
They also affect and contribute to your experience of happiness, relaxation as well as the state of your overall health.
And their effects are very strong in children.
The first few years of a child’s life are crucial in the development of a healthy microbiome.
And while the womb is for the most part a sterile environment, when the baby descends through the birth canal they’re exposed to the mother’s microbiome.
This is the child’s first dose of bacteria.
In contrast, the guts of children delivered using a C-section are quickly populated with bacteria from the skin and the hospital environment.
Giving both groups a VERY different bacterial profile.
Some experts even say that certain childhood diseases could be associated with the lack of good bacteria in a child’s gut after having been delivered by C-section.
In nine recent studies the microbiome of babies born using a C-section were found to have a lower amount of a type of bacteria species called Bacteroides than babies born naturally.
And while the long-term results of this are still not known, some studies have linked C-section births with an increased risk for developing asthma, Type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, certain food allergies and obesity.
Another important source of probiotics is breast milk.
Breast milk is a significant source of microbes, during a child’s early development.
In addition to the over 700 species of microbes found in breast milk it also contains special types of sugar called human milk oligosaccharides or (HMO’s).
These sugars are indigestible by the baby and their sole purpose is to feed the microbes that have been recently introduced into the baby’s gut.
Feeding the microbes allows them to quickly multiply.
And as they multiply the “good bacteria” begin to outnumber the bad.
This is the beginning of a healthy immune system.
As children grow their microbiome continues to develop based on the types of foods they eat and their environment.
By the time they reach the age of two their gut microbiome is like that of an adult.
And because this is such a crucial time in the development of their microbiome, it has also become a perfect place to study the long-term health effects of the gut microbiome and its impact on a child’s behavior.
In one study, researchers at Ohio State University found that the composition of the gut microbiome appears to be associated with temperament in young kids.
They analyzed the gut microbes of 77 toddlers between the ages of 18 and 27 months and in doing so were able to correlate certain behaviors with specific types of bacteria.
They found that kids with a more diverse microbiome were often more curious, positive, social, extroverted and impulsive, and those with a lower amount of bacterial diversity had higher amounts of fear, cuddled more and showed more self-restraint.
Said another way…
Research suggests that a child’s microbiome has the potential to modulate stress responses by controlling hormones like cortisol.
This in turn can have profound effects on how children interact with others and how they respond when confronted with new experiences.
In essence, an outgoing, social and confident child appears to have a much more robust and diverse microbiome – contributing to lower levels of circulating stress hormones.
A child who is more outwardly shy and reserved, who is more introverted and apprehensive in new situations typically has a less diverse microbiome.
And research published in the journal Pediatric Research showed that the microbiome plays a significant role in childhood behaviors including the ability to focus, follow instructions, and even sit still.
Supporting your child’s gut health is by no means a way to change their personalities.
Instead, it’s a way to help them express their true personalities without interference.
Think about it…
When you’re irritable, tired, don’t feel well or are simply having a “bad day” – are you truly yourself?
Or do you act a little differently than usual?
Maybe you’re less patient with others, have more trouble focusing at work or struggle with your memory.
Having a healthy gut allows you to be the REAL you and your children are no different.
That’s why probiotics can be so helpful.
But supporting brain health, behavior and mood are just a few of the things a healthy gut can do.
It does a whole lot more too…
You see, having a healthy gut full of good bacteria is essential for good health.
In addition to the brain and behavioral benefits of probiotics they also…
Influence your child’s weight and their metabolism – healthy gut bacteria aids in digestion, nutrient absorption and metabolism.
In one study healthy weight children between the ages of 6 and 12 months had twice the amount of bifidobacterial compared to children who later became overweight.
May help reduce the potential negative effects of vaccinations – In a report published in the Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination the authors identified two studies that showed a lower incidence of cold and flu-like symptoms for those who were taking probiotics when they received an influenza vaccination.
Help with digestion and overall nutrient absorption – as children grow they need all the nutrient their bodies can absorb. A healthy microbiome is the first step to ensuring your child has access to all of the nutrients their body needs when it needs them.
Let’s face it – you can’t control everything your child is exposed to or even everything what they put into their mouths.
But you can give them a daily probiotic to replenish and nurture their microbiome, keeping it healthy and balanced.
And the best time to start probiotics is now.
The sooner you can help correct a less-than-optimal microbiome and support the growth of beneficial microbes, the better.
