Remember the time when you thought that your moods are based on your gut, emotions, and thoughts? Well, this scientific study  has something else to say about your moods.

And when you’re reading one health and wellness blogs you have to expect science in it, duh.

Unveiling the culprit in this health and wellness blogs:

Believe it or not, bacteria are the real culprit! And I’m not the one claiming this, it’s your very own science and scientific researchers. They believe that the trillions of microbes that live on and in all of us – our microbiome – affect our physical and mental health and fitness.


And not only these bacterias affects your moods but might be the reason behind problems like depression, autism, and neurodegenerative disease that directly affects your lifestyle.


Welcome to the two-way street where your thoughts aren’t the only one to blame:


Being a certified-overthinker myself, mild depression and frequent mood swings have become part of me. But I used to blame my thoughts for such kind of behavior. And now that I know that my thoughts aren’t the only one to blame, it’s time to point out fingers at those harmful microscopic creatures, you know, bacteria.


The study conducted by a group of researchers experimented on mice, before declaring the following results.


Kyushu University in Japan declared the whole ‘bacterias affecting our moods’ concept:


Out of all the health and wellness blogs, this particular blog and study have disturbed me the most.


The experiment and study that ignited the whole concept took place at Kyushu University in Japan.

The researchers showed that “germ-free” mice – those that never came into contact with microbes – pumped out twice the amount of stress hormone when distressed than normal mice, says the CNN health report.


There’s so much more to know about this matter and now that a group of researchers has shown another side of the tunnel, let’s see if a scientist can come out with effective microbial medicine that can fight with the bacteria.
