How to Protect Your Gut in this Modern World of Living to Maintain Best Mental Health

"All Natural Probiotic Supplement for Your Gut Health"

In this modern world, our gut health is exposed to a far-reaching health risks that affect our mental health and wellness. Every day we are exposed to harmful chemicals. Our foods and drinks are prepared with harmful food additives that gradually hurt our good bacteria.  Also, our household cleaning materials are made up of toxic chemicals that upon accumulation,  endanger our brain chemistry. Worst, outside our homes is a vast air pollution including the tiny particles that we unknowingly breathe in. Everywhere, there seems to be always a threat to our gut's health. So, how to keep your gut health in this health-suffocating world of developments? First, understand the detailed facts about your "microbiome".

What is microbiome?

Your microbiome (the community of microorganisms thriving in your gut)  is linked to metabolism regulation and immune function. Its balance should be sustained, otherwise, you'll be at risks of developing type2 diabetes, weight gain, inflammatory bowel disease, and other related chronic illnesses.  Besides, it has another extreme role, the  production of energy and hormones such as serotonin that influence mental health. Hence, it is of prime importance to take good care your microbiome. Take probiotics supplements. and prebiotics to nourish the gut bacteria.

Probiotics help to increase your beneficial bacteria.while prebiotics stimulate the growth and environment of the microorganisms in your gut. Remember that as you age, your digestive system tends to change.

"The GI tract is always replenishing itself," says Gina Sam, M.D. and director of Mount Sinai's Gastrointestinal Motility Center in New York City. "But there are natural, age-related changes to the digestive system — which is everything from the mouth to the bowels — that will impact how smoothly and effectively it continues to work."

Malpractices that disrupt your microbiome these days:

A healthy and radiant skin is a direct reflection of a healthy gut. The digestive issues are shown through your skin. In fact, a leaky gut sysndrome is associated with skin allergies and itchness besides the other symptoms. Indeed, the gut acts like the brain of your skin.

“The balance of your microbiome is most likely off. This usually can be from bad bacteria or fungal overgrowth from poor diet or exposure to bad bugs (parasites),” says Frank Lipman, MD, author of How to Be Well and founder of Be Well Skin. "Rashes, rosacea, and hives are common skin flare-ups that can come from gut dysbiosis,” he added.

Learne that when your intestinal lining is properly functioning, it is forms tight barrier that controls anything absorbed into the bloodstream. Otherwise, it signals that you are having a leaky gut of which the substances are absorbed by the tissues beneath it.

The prevailing malpractices nowadays that disrupt the  balance of your microbiome are as follows:

  •  antibiotic ingestion
  • excessive alcohol intake
  •  processed foods.

 An article posted on PubMed from 2014 mentioned...

 

"Processed foods containing emulsifiers and detergent-like compounds may damage the intestinal lining, potentially leading to “leaky gut” and systemic inflammation (contributing to inflammatory-based diseases such as diabetes and CVD)." 

 

Further PubMed searches supported and expanded on that finding: 

 

[CD = Crohn's Disease]

 

"Maltodextrin (MDX) is a Common Food Additive That Alters Both Microbial Phenotype and Host Anti-Bacterial Defenses.

 

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is produced from starch by partial hydrolysis and is usually found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder. (wikipedia)
This food additive triggers health risks:
- It causes the spike of sugar due to its high glycemic index which is more than the table of sugar. It ranges from 106 to 136 while table sugar is 65.
- It suppresses the growth of good bacteria which had caused the  increased incidence of Crohn’s disease during the late 20th century. Worst, it enhances harmful bacteria E. coli adhesion, and promotes the growth of salmonella.
- It is made from genetically modified corn (GMO) that is linked to  a number of health issues, including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, kidney damage, antibiotic resistance, reproduction disorders and allergies.
- It  may cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as gurgling sounds, gas,and diarrhea (9), even skin allergies and irritations.
Recommended substitutes: stevia, pectin, dates, honey, guar gum

 

The symptoms of an imbalance gut microbiome according to health experts:

  • Gastrointestinal discomfort—especially after eating carbohydrate-rich meals—can be the result of poor digestion and absorption of carbohydrates,” Fischer says. Reflux, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease, and colitis have all been linked to an imbalance in the microbiome.
  •  “If there’s an overgrowth of yeast in the system, which might happen after a course or two of antibiotics where you wipe out all the good bacteria, then that overgrowth of yeast can actually cause you to crave more sugar,” Fischer says.
  • “Gut imbalances of the microbiome can trigger depressive symptoms,” says Todd LePine, MD, a board certified physician at the UltraWellness Center in Lenox, Massachusetts.
  • Not having enough serotonin can lead to bouts of insomnia or difficulty getting to sleep, according to Fischer. And according to LePine, chronic fatigue and symptoms of fibromyalgia can be tied into gut bacteria imbalances as well.
  • Skin rashes and eczema, a chronic condition characterized by inflamed and itchy red blotches on the skin, can develop when there is an imbalance in gut bacteria, according to Victoria Maizes, MD, executive director of the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and professor of medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.
  • According to Dr. LePine, diseases affecting the immune system, known as autoimmune diseases, can also indicate an imbalance. “Rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis are tied in with imbalances in the gut bacteria,” he says.

Please always remember this...

Your healthy body is the best gift you can give to your family. It is the real wealth. Don't be preoccupied with the bunch of financial worries and obligations to the extent of living a paradoxical lifestyle..." spending your health for wealth and  then spending your wealth to regain your health."

Make amend of what you have done wrong to your health. Boost your health today by taking good care of your gut with utmost attention.

How to Protect Your Gut's health?

  • Keep Propbiotics Well-Populated in Your Gut.

Understand that 60-70% of the immune system resides in your gut. Scientific studies show that there is a vast network of the lymph tissue in the gastrointestinal tract. It is called as GALT (gut associated lymphatic tissue) where probiotics are in constant interfacing with it.  Probiotics are good bacteria that will fight off bad bacteria from the foods you eat. It breaks down every bacterium and prevents its growth.

  • Identify the wide range of different types of foods for your gut bacteria.

From the research studies, the growth of your microbiome is largely influenced by dietary diversity. The main reason is, there are hundreds of species of bacteria in your gut. Each specie has different role which needs to be nourished with the required nutrients for its growth. The gut health foods that are recommended by gut experts are  the following:

  1. Fermented foods
  2. Probiotics - break down and prevent food-born illnesses such as salmonella.
  3. Prebiotics -non-digestible fibre that nourishes the growth of probiotics
  4. Plant-based diet
  5. Rich in Polyphenols
  6. Rich in fiber 
  7. Rich in Omega-3

Dr Cristina Menni, from King's College London said, "We also found that specific bacteria that have been linked to lower inflammation and lower risk of obesity are increased in people who have a higher intake of omega-3 fatty acids. We further explored how this related to compounds in faeces and found that, in addition to fish protein and omega-3, high levels of omega-3 in blood are correlated with high levels of a compound called N-carbamylglutamate (NCG) in the gut. This compound has been shown in animals to reduce oxidative stress in the gut. We believe that some of the good effects of omega-3 in the gut may be due to the fact that omega 3 induces bacteria to produce this substance."

  • Add more coconut in your diet as it has anti-inflammatory and weight loss benefits according to the ( Studies)
  • Don't eat when you are stressed. Take a deep breath and calm your system before eating. It puts the parasympathetic nervous system in place. In effect, your digestive system can function properly.
  • Empower your vagal signalling process to trigger the production of digestive enzymes and stomach acid. You may gargle for 3 minutes or stimulate your gag reflex two or three times.
  • Have your gut performed its repair by leaving 12 hours interval between dinner and breakfast, but do not fast.
  • Keep your gut slipperiness by drinking lots of water.

 

"Having a healthy gut is so important," accredited practicing dietitian and sports dietitian Chloe McLeod told HuffPost Australia.

 

Conclusion

Your gut is the Grand Central Station of your body acting as the command center for health. Its function is more than digesting foods. It facilitates the breaking down of foods and absorption of nutrients due to its microbiome, the ecosystem of different species of bacteria having different roles. Indeed, having a dysfunctional gut in your digestive system will have a toll on your overall health. So, don't be a part of the group of people who barely commit themselves to a healthy lifestyle.
