The Truth About
Your gut is also referred to as your
and that’s because it’s home to millions of good bacteria (also known as probiotics). When well-balanced and optimized, these good bacteria have beneficial functions that reach far beyond your gut.
Your Microbiome and Its Impact
Your body’s good bacteria are responsible for helping you metabolize fiber, turning it into fatty acids that keep your gut cells and digestive system functioning – but the benefits of probiotics go much farther than your gut. They also include:
- Fighting against pathogens (malignant, invasive bacteria)
- Keeping your immune system in balance
- Metabolizing the active ingredients in the medications you take
- Lining your gut’s mucous membranes
- Communicating with your nerves and brain in order to help regulate your emotions and overall mood.
Your Microbiome and You
From your diet to your activity levels and the medications you take, the lifestyle choices and changes you make every day can have a major impact on your microbiome. To keep your gut bacteria as well-balanced and thriving as possible, make sure you:
- Eat a well-balanced diet comprised of whole, nutrient-rich foods
- Ingest foods that are naturally high in probiotics, like yogurt, kimchi, and kombucha
- Aim to get a minimum of 30 minutes of movement every day
- Stay hydrated by drinking a minimum of 64 ounces (about 8 glasses) of water daily
- Talk to your doctor about taking probiotics to replenish your gut bacteria if you are on antibiotics
- Always consult a doctor before taking any new vitamins, supplements, or medications
