Welcome to another Health News video news release brought to you by HealthNews.
In today’s news we look at a new buzz word, microbiome and, what it means to you.
What is a microbiome and why is it important?
It’s all of the genes in the microbes from all the microbiata (bacteria, fungi, and viruses) that live in or on the human body.
There is nothing more important to the function of your body, nothing more in control and nothing that impacts more of your tissues and organs than the microbiota.
What can we do to positively affect your microbiome?
Choose foods high in polyphenols.
Polyphenols are micronutrients that give fruits, berries, and vegetables their vibrant colors, and contribute to the bitterness, astringency, flavor, aroma, and oxidative stability of the food.
They also have an incredibly beneficial effect on the microbiome.
Choose the right carbohydrates.
Eating good carbohydrates can actually reduce obesity by increasing beneficial bacteria.
Processed carbohydrates containing artificial sweeteners promote unhealthy gut bacteria that cause obesity.
Eat healthy fats.
Saturated fats that come from animal-based foods like non-grass fed beef, whole-fat milk, cheese, and butter have a negative impact on the gut microbiota and lead to obesity.
In contrast, grass-fed red meat and healthy fats found in avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, nuts, fish and free-range poultry, as well as unsaturated plant-based fats play a vital role in maintaining a balance of healthy gut flora, and do not contribute to obesity.
Eat one forkful of fermented foods every day.
Fermented foods like sauerkraut are those that grow bacteria in them or on them.
They are some of the best detoxifying agents available.
The beneficial bacteria in these foods are capable of drawing out a wide range of toxins and heavy metals.
Reach for the probiotics.
Probiotics is the term for the good bacteria in your gut.
For a healthy microbiome, probiotics need to be the majority of all your gut bacteria.
Probiotics are most effective when they are combined with a high-fiber diet that features lots of vegetables every day.
The right fiber acts as a fertilizer that helps the probiotic grow and proliferate good bacteria in your microbiome.
Add prebiotics to the list.
A prebiotic is a special type of soluble fiber that is used mostly by the beneficial good bacteria as a fuel.
Prebiotics are found in foods like garlic, Jerusalem artichokes, jicama, dandelion greens and onions.
Just remember, if you take care of your gut, your gut will take care of you physically, mentally and emotionally!
Remember your best source for everything health is your chiropractor.
Visit your chiropractor regularly and make sure your nervous system is functioning 100%.
