Gut Health: Our Digestive Microbiome

They say “Way to a Man’s heart is through his stomach” yes it’s true but don’t connect this with emotions, the actual meaning is way beyond it; simply let’s put the dots within the biological & scientific doable.
Stomach or better called Gut can say a lot about your health, yourself, your lifestyle, it’s like you woke up in the morning, a great day is lying ahead and suddenly you see very visible acne, probably because you had that big chunks of doughnuts post bedtime and now before all the regrets & guilt fall down upon you, it’s too late! Yes, your gut health sometimes can be that one annoying boss you want to just ignore but you can’t because he is the boss.

You know there are hundreds of species of bacteria and more than 100 trillion live in our intestines, don’t worry many of these bacteria’s are essential to our gut system and these are termed “gut microbiome”, Adding onto the facts, 70% of our immune system is located in the gut, that’s why they say it’s important to feed ourselves good food for good health, since our childhood we all have been hearing from our parents, grandparents ‘eat well’ and doctors even before they begin the real scrutinize it all starts from what do you eat actually, are you hovering on junk food a lot?

Numerous studies in the past two decades have demonstrated links between gut health and the immune system, mood, mental health, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and cancer, so the next time when you wonder, why this skin, constipation, constant fatigue, bloating, gas, diarrhea? You know why it is!

But have you ever wondered what is the perfect mantra to have a healthy gut, actually, the answer lies within your gut, your stomach can talk a lot! It can tell you when you are hungry, when your overboard with the food and the next morning call (You know it!) so feed yourself what suits the best to your gut, that’s why there are so many food allergies & the infamous lactose intolerant cases.

Know your intolerances, eat your greens, and especially add fiber (Chia, flax, pumpkin seeds, fruits, sprouts) food rich in fiber can help a lot in keeping the digestive system well functioned, add prebiotic or probiotic foods (like yogurt and it tastes good too) it works magic, have a well rich balanced diet basically and last tip on the food, avoid whites; all-purpose flour, pizza, burger, it helps a lot but sometimes it’s okay, your gut can manage and a cheat meal a week keeps you happy too!

But changing food habits only won’t help, exercise & proper sleep (minimum 8 hours) is equally essential to have a healthy body & mind.
