This also activates the neurotransmitter known as Gaba, that may decrease during stressful situations.

Ø  Probiotics:
We have good and bad bacteria in our gut and when we take in probiotics, which is part of the good bacteria, this also has an effect on our mental health as our body systems sends messages to each other. This can be found in powder, capsules and drinks such as kombucha
