Healthy Gut Microbiome

Healthy Gut Microbiome

A healthy gut microbiome is so essential to the health of every organ in the body. Problems with the gut microbiome can be at the root of many symptoms, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Loose bowels
  • Joint pain
  • Weight issues
  • Mood swings; and 
  • Hormonal imbalances

So much of our food these days has been irradiated or over-processed so that the natural healthy bacteria that we would normally get from our diet is reduced drastically.

What is the difference between a probiotic and prebiotic?

We need a daily dose of healthy bacteria for a healthy gut i.e. probiotics, and we also need a daily dose of the specific nutrients that keep these bacteria alive i.e. prebiotics.

Some examples of foods containing prebiotics:

  • Garlic
  • Grated ginger
  • Grated turmeric root
  • Asparagus
  • Leek
  • Dandelion root
  • Apples
  • Jerusalem artichoke; and 
  • Onions

Some examples of foods containing probiotics:

  • Yoghurt
  • Sauerkraut
  • Miso
  • Tempeh
  • Kombucha; and
  • Kefir
