The Gut Microbiome

The Gut Microbiome

They tell you to “trust your gut” but do you actually take care of your gut so it can function properly?

Your gut microbiome is made up of trillions of bacteria, fungi and other microbes.
The gut microbiome plays a very important role in your health by helping control digestion and benefiting your immune system and many other aspects of health.

An imbalance of unhealthy and healthy microbes in the intestines may contribute to weight gain, high blood sugar, high cholesterol and other disorders

How Can You Improve Your Gut Microbiome?
 Eat a diverse range of foods
 Eat fermented foods
 Try a plant-based diet
 Eat foods rich in polyphenols ( red wine, green tea, dark chocolate, olive oil, etc)
 Take a probiotic supplement
