Dr. Oz: Can Food Affect the Mood?

Dr. Oz talked about how food can affect the mood. Dr. Oz talked to neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter about this issue. He said that we now know that 90 percent of serotonin, the happy chemical, is manufactured in the gut. The literature also shows that when the gut is leaky, inflammation rises and mood goes down. He said it’s important to improve the health of the gut by encouraging good bacteria with probiotics to reduce inflammation, reduce leakiness, and improve the mood.
