Try This Thursday
Thanks to @davidperlmutter ‘s work and his work ‘Brain Maker’ (be sure to check this incredible book out!), we are given some incredibly informative, life-changing information regarding the human body. 🧠
On Tuesday we discussed the brain-gut connection and how having a healthy gut promotes a healthy brain- Did you know these two systems are directly related?
Continuing on with his fantastic article featured in @experiencelifemag , we wanted to offer a few of his tips on how to improve the state of your microbiome (gut) so your entire body can thrive at its best!
Eat Foods Rich in Probiotics: Probiotics are live bacteria and yeast that support good digestive health. These bacteria help maintain the integrity of the gut lining; serve as natural antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals; regulate immunity; control inflammation. Improve nutrient absorption and more! Fermented foods such as live culture yogurt 🥣, kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut, kefir , etc. are rich in probiotics!
Go Lower-Carb; Embrace High-Quality Fats: A diet that keeps your blood sugar balanced keeps your gut bacteria balanced. A diet high in rich sources of fiber from whole vegetables 🥦 / fruits feeds good gut bacteria, producing the right balance of short-chain fatty acids to keep the intestinal lining in check. An anti-inflammatory diet is good for the brain!
Consume Foods Rich in Prebiotics: Prebiotics are food-borne fuel for the beneficial bacteria that live in the gut...
Prebiotics have many benefits, including the ability to reduce inflammation in inflammatory-bowel disorders, enhance mineral absorption, and promote a sense of satiety.
Drink Filtered Water : This is important to intestinal health, but it’s critical that the water doesn’t contain gut-busting chemicals like chlorine. Environmental toxins can disrupt the microbiome and disturb brain physiology.
