Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet especially these days can boost your immune system and help protect from diseases and reduce illnesses from infections like the COVID-19 and others.
Eating for a healthy gut cannot be any simpler so I will be sharing the main habits you need to adopt.
It is important to know that your GUT HEALTH impacts several different factors such as body weight, skin health, mood, immunity, allergy, inflammation in the body, nutrient absorption and bloating and digestion.
Gut health means we have a large diversity of bacteria and fungi in our intestine. On the other hand, low diversity of bacteria means one of two things: it triggers disease and inflammation and it reduces the number of beneficial microbes in the gut. Studies have shown that a low diversity meaning a low variety or types of microbes in your gut can cause a high inflammatory state in the body.
One of the main causes of diabetes is due to high inflammation in the body. High inflammation in the body can also trigger autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBS) or psoriasis of the skin.
Another important role of a healthy gut and a diverse gut flora is how it controls our sugar peaks. The less sugar peaks we have, the more our body maintains fat levels and weight. On This note, healthy gut flora has a lot to do with your body weight and helps you in your weight loss journey.
The Good news is that we can manipulate our gut flora simply with our daily diet.
Hope you found the above information useful and it got you motivated to eat for your gut.
