"For instance when we experience "butterflies in the stomach", this really is the brain in the stomach talking to the brain in your head.

As we get nervous or fearful, blood gets diverted from our gut to our muscles and this is the stomach's way of protesting."





"Surprisingly, there are over 100 million of these cells in your gut, as many as there are in the head of a cat.






The little brain does not do a lot of complex thinking but it does get on with the essential daily grind involved in digesting food - lots of mixing, contracting and absorbing, to help break down our food and begin extracting the nutrients and vitamins we need."
