The Vagus Nerve is the longest nerve in your body. It originates in the brain and then travels through your digestive system. It is the body and mind connection and is being increasingly seen as the super highway of our nervous system.

We have 2 sides to our nervous system. The first is the parasympathetic nervous system. This is the ‘rest and digest’ part.

On the flip side, we have our sympathetic nervous system which is ‘fight and flight’. This is the part that kicks in when we are being metaphorically chased by a tiger. It’s also the side that most people live in on a daily basis. It’s your bodies survival, or emergency mode, that is responsible for all your stress and anxiety.

As you can see from the infographic above from Horizon Magazine it controls your digestion and gives you that full feeling which is essential in maintaining a healthy weight range.
