The Best Wellness with The Right Gut Flora

Posted 18 Feb '19

Allergies, eczema, stomach trouble, autoimmunity, hay fever, and even feeling unwell after having taken a round of antibiotics — they may seem to be unrelated, but they have one thing in common. All of these are influenced by our microbiome. It is a population of different microorganisms — bacteria and yeasts — that dwell within and on our body. And they play a crucial role in our overall health. They can affect the simplest diarrhea, to even complex conditions such as IBS or parasite infestations.

Probiotics contain different strains that can keep the balance of microbiota and promote health. Majority of these microbes can be found within the gut.

Effects of Probiotics

  • Improves digestive function. Probiotics balances the gut flora, shifting off the balance of bad bacteria.
  • Restores the balance of gut flora after getting sick or taking antibiotics.
  • Heals the gut lining and mucous membranes which supports IgA
  • Produces short-chain fatty acids
  • Helps break down dietary fibre which is food for the good bacteria
  • Reduces inflammation (systemic and local)
  • Health benefits transferred from mum to unborn child during pregnancy
  • Reduces allergy triggers
  • Calms hyper-active immune system that is linked to autoimmune diseases

Best Diet for Healthy Gut Flora

What you eat affects the balance of these microbes within the gastrointestinal tract.

  • Keep highly refined foods, and sugars at a minimum for they encourage bad bacteria growth
  • Choose whole foods that are high in fibre, to keep the good bacteria thriving
  • Limit even fruit sugars like dried dates and coconut sugar
  • Consider fermented foods

Talk with a naturopath practitioner about the best strains to take based on your current health state.

Embarking on a fresh exercise or workout routine marks a pivotal stride towards enhancing your overall well-being. While the advantages of physical activity are beyond measure, integrating a new regimen may inadvertently introduce some undesired repercussions.
