How can gut bacteria improve your health

How can gut bacteria improve your health

Gut bacteria play’s a huge role in your health and can affect weight loss

Increase diversity of gut microbiome

1. Fiber

Bacteria love to feast on fiber, especially two kinds: Fructans are high-fiber natural carbs found in onions, garlic, wheat and other plant foods. Fructan fibers are more likely to survive longer in your GI tract, and that’s good for a healthy gut.

2. Different Veggies

Having different types of vegetable fibers so if you’re eating just the same vegetable over and over and over you’re not going to near have the diversity that you should have so you want to rotate your vegetables you want to have salad with a lot of different things that will help you also people that are not overweight

3. losing Weight

If you lose weight you’ll have more diversity in your gut versus someone that’s overweight is gonna have less diversity of microbes

4. Fasting

Fasting very very powerful action to increase the diversity apparently when you don’t eat your microbes get stronger they live longer and they develop in diverse ways

5. Polyphenols

Polyphenols, this is a Phytonutrient that are in a lot of different foods nuts and seeds and vegetables and berries so a wide variety of things but even like chocolate and coffee and of course we’re not recommending chocolate or sugar but there are a lot of different things that have polyphenol including wine so this is your time to start drinking to increase your diversity of bacteria and being very sarcastic the problem with wine is the alcohol part and we’re not recommending that as an option

6. Fermentation

Fermentation consuming fermented vegetables like sauerkraut is very very good

Decrease diversity of gut microbiome

1. Snacking

Snacking eating too frequently if you overfeed your microbes you get less diversity

2. Sugar

A diet high in processed foods and added sugars can decrease the amount of good bacteria in your gut. This imbalance can cause increased sugar cravings, which can damage your gut still further. High amounts of refined sugars

3. Antibiotics

Antibiotics of course allowing the bad bacteria to grow because one of the things that the good bacteria does is they can actually take up the space and the food so the bad bacteria cannot live there. There are many many bad side effects that occur when you take antibiotics

4. Alcohol

Alcohol can cause an imbalance of gut bacteria, with an overgrowth of potentially harmful bacteria and a reduction in beneficial bacteria

5. GMD

GMO foods and we’re talking about the main herbicide in GMO foods which is glyphosate that apparently blocks microbes from producing amino acids and neurotransmitters

6. Artificial Sweetner

Artificial sweeteners will also inhibit the diversity of your microbes so if you don’t have enough microbes that can also affect insulin resistance and that can actually affect your blood sugars so here you are not knowing this you start doing sugar free this sugar free that using the traditional artificial sweeteners like aspartame and you’re gaining weight.

7. Frequent Eating

Frequent eating Fruit, vegetables, pulses, nuts and wholegrains feed healthy bacteria. Avoid highly processed foods. They often contain ingredients that either suppress ‘good’ bacteria or increase ‘bad’ bacteria

8. Stress

Stress can affect digestion, and what nutrients the intestines absorb. Gas production related to nutrient absorption may increase. The intestines have a tight barrier to protect the body from (most) food related bacteria
