Our gut flora is a composition of various microbial cells in our digestive tract. Gut microbiota influences our overall mental and physical well being.
Weight loss is a blend of the right food and the right gut microbiota. Two main types of gut bacteria, Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes, influence our weight.
The gut bacteria plays a key role in body weight management as metabolic, neuroendocrine, and immunological functions are all affected.
Our gut flora controls gene expression and improves the ability to extract and store energy from food. Obesity is linked to a reduction in bacterial diversity in the gut flora.
Fiber is a prebiotic, which means it feeds the bacteria in your gut. Include a wide variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet to increase the diversity of gut bacteria.
Probiotics are “good” bacteria that aid your digestion. They can be found in fermented foods such as yogurt, soybean milk, and sauerkraut.
