Post: 7 basic advice πŸ™ for gut health πŸ€—

Researches show Gut health accounts to almost 70% of the body’s immunity. It’s an ecosystem of about 40 trillion microorganisms, living inside your body plays a vital role in almost every biological functions in your body. Therefore, it goes to show, how important a role, gut health plays every day to keep you healthy and strong from any kinds of diseases and sickness.

Too many information, too many dietary advice floating on the internet, not only makes you confuse but sometimes even give wrong information or just misleading information.

7 basic science backed recommendations for gut health :

1.There is no such thing called “The healthy diet”. If one diet works for one person may not work for another person. Therefore, the only basic dietary advice can be you should eat enough of plant-based food. You should feed yourself with varieties of veggies and fruits, preferably fresh and locally available. Probiotic foods are also gut friendly. Remember, you have a huge colony of microbes in your gut. If some may prefer some kind of food, other microbes may like some other kind of food. This way, you can make them happy and they work together for your stronger health.

2.Big “NO” to sugar: Just say, “NO” to sugar and all artificial sweeteners. The natural sweetness in fruits and veggies and also natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup is not that harmful. Otherwise, sugar alters the composition and functions of natural gut microbes and becomes the feast for harmful bacteria and fungus-like Candida.

3. Say “NO” to processed food and food with preservatives. Harmful preservatives (Like polysorbate 80, carboxymethylcellulose ) alter the composition of gut microbes. Genetically Modified food (bioengineered food) are also very harmful to gut health because they use some kind of pesticides while growing them. Common GMO food is corn, soy, some veggies like zucchini, squash. So, organic, or naturally grown veggies and fruits are best.

3. Avoid popping up pills: Say no to antibiotics and NSAIDs (aspirin, Advil ) as far as possible. Both these drugs alter the composition and function of the gut microbiome. Use it only when necessary.

4.Please quit smoking: Studies have shown that smoking causes alteration in the composition of the gut microbiome. Therefore, another reason added to the list to quit smoking.

5 Get out in Nature: People living the sedentary city lives, hardly come across varieties of microbiomes. So, the only way to expose yourself to varieties of microbes, a wider ecosystem is going out in nature, spending as much time, going hiking, biking and lot more of physical activities.

6.Have a pet at home, that also helps to increase your microbiome diversity.

7. Routine advice: Get plenty of quality sleep of 7-8 hours, exercise and eat in scheduled time preferably. All of them contribute to your gut health.

    1. Thanks for readingπŸ€—. More exposure to bacteria and parasites (which normally four legged animals have ) can prepare your body’s immune system to fight more infections and environmental triggers. So children growing with pets have a better immunity than those without.

  1. What a perfect world, if only reality lived there. Such great advice but totally impractical or impossible for 90% of people on the planet. Most don’t crave having a pet at home, they just anguish for a home. Or ANYTHING to eat. The First World exists elsewhere.

    1. Yes, so true. People doesn’t like simple life, they are so busy in their stressful competitive materialistic world. That’s the reality. That is also a biggest health risk.Anyways, thanks for reading πŸ€—

      1. You don’t seem to understand. I am talking about people living so simply that even any meal or any home is absolute luxury to them. Perhaps too many dish out advice without knowing the realities and struggles of others?? I see it every day. Many gurus teaching without reaching out.

      2. Yes, I understand different people have different struggles. Some don’t even have the luxury to get a meal. I wrote this article for those who care about their general well-being.

      3. We get drowned in advice, all more or less singing the same tune. Much of it from beliefs, not even science. Science itself gets warped, it is like telling all that Clinton was winning.

        Truth is that Trump won. Reality wasn’t found in journalism or opinions. Or beliefs.

  2. Gut health is so important. So many of the foods we eat are inflammatory, which then causes inflammation in the gut. A healthy gut is a healthy body!
