Gut-Brain Connection: How does it help in Speech delay?

19-25 % of children aged below 5 years have delayed speech. A lot of parents have plenty of questions about their child’s developing speech skills. Like when do babies utter their first word? When can they hold a conversation? Well, without the brain, there would be no language because the human brain has a few areas that are specific to language processing and production. But, the brain is not the only player in this game. It is also critical to have a healthy gut in order to improve speech delay.  This read will help you understand the meaning of the gut and its vital role in brain health as well as in improving speech delay in kids. 

PROVEN ROLE OF DIET in speech delay:

The “tug of war” we are concerned about in children with speech delays is the one between neurotransmitters – glutamate and GABA, important for speech development. We all know that processed foods are bad for us. But did you know that processed foods also contain a lot of glutamate? Glutamate can induce an imbalance in a neurotransmitter called GABA, which controls speech.

  • Excess glutamate causes nerve injury
  • Lack of GABA can delay language development

One of the most essential things to do with preverbal or speech-delayed children is to get their food right. Reduced glutamate consumption helps to restore balance in the gut. It is advisable to avoid any foods (as well as tonics/gummies) that contain (or cause the body to produce) glutamate, glutamic acid, aspartate, and/or aspartic acid and cysteine.

Identifying and removing food sensitivities has helped them to sleep better, focus better and also helped them develop speech and language capabilities.

To keep things simple, you have to understand the meaning of gut and brain connection and eliminate processed or refined foods.

Meaning ofGut and Brain connection”:

The gut-brain relationship isn’t a joke. Have you ever “felt nauseated” in particular situations? Have you ever had the sensation of “butterflies” in your stomach? These idioms are used to explain the meaning of gut. Emotions have an impact on the gastrointestinal tract. Anger, worry, grief, and joy are just a few of the emotions that can cause symptoms in the gut.

The enteric nervous system, or ENS, is a network of nerves in your stomach that functions similarly to the brain. It’s also known as the “second brain”. For all of these processes to function smoothly, a balance must be maintained in the gut microbiome made up of billions of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and even parasites.

GUT and BRAIN have a strong connection. Keeping the GUT healthy results in a healthy brain. Adding foods that support brain development can help to improve language development.

(1) FRUCTO-OLIGOSACCHARIDES (FOS):

Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are an excellent source of prebiotics that promote growth of healthy gut bacteria. Prebiotics can help you improve your response time, mood, learning memory, speech, and working memory. It is safe to consume daily dosages of 5-10 g to boost brain function (learning and working memory) and behaviour (anxiety and mood).
