Healthy Probiotic Foods

Have you ever thought of improving your mental health through the gut? If not, you should be. Your gut is where digestion begins, but it's also connected to your brain and at least 70 percent of your immune system. You simply can't be healthy if your gut isn't healthy. The "gut" is a general term that describes the entire digestive system. This includes the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, small intestine, and large intestine (aka the colon). Your gut is packed with bacteria and home to 2,000 different species that […]

Your gut is home to over 100 billion bacteria, but antibiotics, pesticides, stress, and genetically-modified foods are just a few of the things that can weaken that diversity.[1] Your gut’s bacteria needs to stay healthy or concerns like irritable bowel syndrome, gluten allergies, and even obesity can be more likely.

The fermentation process encourages essential bacteria such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria to flourish. This makes fermentation a good source of probiotics for vegans, since many fermented foods are plant-based. Vegetables are submerged in a salty brine during […]

Many people don’t realize a healthy gut does far more than handle digestion. Research into the gut microbiome is revealing startling results, showing its effects on the immune system, obesity, allergies, and mood. Nutrition plays a firm role in gut flora quality and quantity. In fact, certain foods contain “prebiotics” that feed beneficial gut bacteria. The more beneficial bacteria we have, the greater likelihood our health will benefit. On the other hand, a diet high in refined sugars and trans fats may hinder the gut microbiota and influence practically every […]

Comments Off on The Role of Probiotics & the Gut Microbiome

Your gut is where digestion begins, it's connected to your brain, and it's at least 70 percent of your immune system. The bottom line — you can't be healthy if your gut isn't healthy. A diet free of refined sugar and artificial ingredients are part of the equation in promoting a healthy gut flora. Achieving a positive balance of bacteria is the other. Within your gut live colonies of friendly bacteria known as probiotics that are part of your microbiota. When you have healthy, established colonies, it has positive effects […]
