  • Repair and protect your gut by simply eating these seven foods
    As the saying goes, “you are what you eat”. But evidence suggests that the same may also be true for the microbes in your gut… A December 2011 study published in the journal Nature, which was conducted by Harvard, revealed that in as little as one day, your diet can alter the population of microbes in your gut - particularly those that tolerate bile - as well as the types of genes expressed by gut bacteria.

Furthermore, it means that what you eat has a drastic affect on your gut microbiome, which is what helps develop your immune and protect the integrity of your gut lining. Foods like deep-fried junk food can have a seriously detrimental effect on this fragile system, and can ultimately trigger serious problems like autoimmune disease.

The answer lies in what type of fats they are - are they polyunsaturated (omega-3 and omega-6) or monounsaturated (omega-9s)? Most foods contain a combination of at least two of these fats, and your body needs a certain amount of each of them. The question you might have now is “how much?”, so let's examine each of them.... ››› Read more
