Our human body requires a healthy and balanced gut microbiome. Our gut microbiome is made up of trillions of microorganisms to ensure proper digestive functioning, immune systems, and others, play an important role in gut health.
However, healthy gut microbiome is closely tied with the possibilities of health issues like diabetes, obesity, depression, and colon cancer. That’s why it is essential to nourish and support the microbiome.
Let’s know about what are the ways to heal your gut microbiome, naturally.
Maintain a wholefood diet
The wholefood, particularly plant-based foods, is rich in low fermentable carbohydrates and play a vital role in supporting our health.
Prepare a wholefood diet by enlisting plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables (seasonal is preferable as they contain more nutrients), fish, salads or olives that have a significant number of healthy fats. So what are you waiting for?
Consider fermented food
Consuming fermented food- containing abundant probiotic bacteria (e.g. Lactobacilli, Bifid bacterium, etc.), can benefit you many ways. Mainly they are best helpful to restore a healthy gut microbiome as well as an intestinal barrier by improving our digestive system.
Some of the popular fermented foods you can consider adding in your diet list such as yogurt, kefir, fresh kimchi, unpasteurized sauerkraut, etc.
Avoid sugar as much as possible
Excess sugar intake is not suitable for your health as it increases the risk of weight gain, heart disease risk factors (high blood pressure inflammation, etc.), cellular aging, and so on.
No matter what the types of sugar are; whether it is refined sugar or processed sugar, both wreak havoc in our gut and make our microbiome unhappy. Therefore, the best solution is to avoid sugar as much as possible.
