VIDEO: Food Scientist Explains "The Brain in Your Gut"

“Did you know you have functioning neurons in your intestines - about a hundred million of them?... Food scientist Heribert Watzke explains that our guts have a full-fledged brain, and he’s not speaking metaphorically. The gut – the stomach, small intestine, colon – has two layers of muscle with lots of nervous tissue between them, which penetrate muscle layers.” As he discusses in this TED Conference video, the "second brain" contains as many nerve cells as a cat’s brain, is made up of 20 different neuron types,” and interacts with the “big brain” in fascinating ways.



To read more about Heribert Watzke and his work at the Nestle Research Center in Switzerland, click HERE. Nestle’s Recent 7th International Nutrition Symposium focused on “Epigenetics” – the study of changes in the way genes are expressed, caused by factors such as nutrient availability/deficiencies that do not necessarily change underlying DNA, are potentially passed on for multiple generations, and, researchers propose, may be addressed by nutritional or other regimens.
