Do you consume the same foods on a daily basis? Diversity in microbes through your food is so important!
Ideally, you want a rich microbiome with a lot of different species.
Diverse microbes help with:
- Making vitamins
- Offering immune protection
- Keeping inflammation low
- Help colon cells
- Produce amino acids, neurotransmitters, and other proteins
- Help sustain energy levels
Otherwise, you might end up with unwanted pathogens in the body.
When we don’t feed our bodies diversity in bacteria and gut microbes, we can create dysbiosis in our digestion system. Dysbiosis has been linked to several different health conditions, including: Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar, anxiety, and depression.
Some common systems of lack of diversity in gut microbes consists of: diarrhea, gut inflammation, toxins, obesity, slow metabolism, and mood changes.
Other things that hinder microbiome diversity include: antibiotics, glyphosate, stress, artificial sweeteners, liver issues, radiated foods, and ultra-processed foods.
Here are a few tips to consider for adding more diversity in your diet:
- Consume foods grown in diverse soils
- Increase diversity of plants consumed
- Quality sleep
- Intermittent fasting
- Consume more phenols, sprouts, and microgreens (grown in soil)
- Consume more probiotic and raw foods
