Human gastrointestinal microbiota, also known as gut flora or gut microbiota, are the microorganisms, like bacteria and fungi, that live in the digestive tracts of humans. A study looking into gut health from the Mayo Clinic suggests that a low-calorie, high-fiber diet combined with exercise like walking, gave participants a gut that is more efficient in extracting energy. We are what we eat.
What’s Your Story?
Gut health cannot be changed overnight; the story of your gut takes years to compile. Because your eating habits take years to create, tweaking and re-educating your habits is a journey. Where you live and what you eat lay your habit’s foundation. They dictate what interventions you need to change that habit. Dr. Nangrani is qualified to help you with that.
A plant-based diet helps to regulate your digestive tract, as do drinking plenty of water and getting enough sleep. These factors help increase the good bacteria in your gut. Staying away from processed foods that are high in fat, salt, and sugar helps you meet your long-term health goals.
Supplements and Probiotics for Gut Health
Supplemental capsules, powders, or drink enhancers are jam-packed full of vitamins and minerals. Sounds obvious! But be sure to take them in addition to your five daily fruits and vegetables.
As part of your wellness routine, the dietary supplements that you choose are a kind of insurance policy, like when you insure your vehicle. When you take a daily supplement, you are ensuring that you have the recommended daily amount of vitamins and minerals.
Probiotics are like healthy gut bacteria, while prebiotics (indigestible fiber) is food for probiotics. Think of them as fuel for the probiotics to do their job. Asparagus is a prebiotic food, along with pineapple, onion, garlic, apple cider vinegar, and bone broth.
Probiotics introduce healthy bacteria into the gut and are helpful if you experience bloating and digestion issues. From probiotics maintaining good gut health to daily multivitamins specially formulated for men or women to Vitamin C complex, supplements are not simply extra nutrition. They are essential to provide micronutrients that you just can’t get any other way. Deficiencies cause real effects! For instance, a deficiency in vitamin D may show up as depression and anxiety.
