WHAT ARE THE BUGS IN YOUR GUT EATING?

So many times we just focus on how what we eat affects our weight. 

But there’s SO MUCH MORE at work here! And it’s all interconnected.

The “good” bacteria that live inside your gut need to eat, just like you do.

They love to nibble on insoluble fibers (aka “prebiotics”) that are tough enough to survive the trip through your stomach.

Meanwhile, the “bad” bacteria inside your gut thrive in a low-fiber environment with sugars, processed foods and grains, additives, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, and fillers.

Experts theorize that when there’s not enough food for your good bacteria, they physically starve. 

This gives the bad bacteria a chance to get a foothold, which can cause some major problems!

It all hinges on the lining of your gut. 

This lining is actually a super important part of your immune system, because it forms a barrier between the food you eat and the rest of your body. 

When this lining becomes too permeable (when the bad bacteria begin to take over) …

Toxins, bacteria, and even partially digested foods can “leak out” of your digestive system and make their way into your bloodstream. (this is called Leaky Gut!) 

This can lead to inflammation and even trigger an immune system response. And you definitely don’t want that!

Over time, this can cause a whole host of problems like chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, auto-immune diseases, skin conditions and more.

This is why we always talk about eating whole, “clean” foods. Because when your gut is happy, it makes the rest of your body happy.

Like I mentioned earlier, the key to a healthy gut microbiome is BALANCE (including exercise, sleep, diet, stress, and more). 

Now more than ever, balance is SO IMPORTANT to keeping you (and the people you care for!) healthy and strong.
