Gut Bacteria Can Help to Predict How the Body Will Respond to Fatty Foods

Research done at Imperial College London shows that chemical signatures from gut bacteria can be used to determine how your body will respond to a high-fat diet, EurekAlert! Reports. Researchers said this is another example of how our gut microbiome shapes our overall health.

This is an exciting field of study, as we learn more and more about how our gut determines our body’s processes. Even more exciting is knowing that simply making the right dietary and lifestyle choices can help determine how our gut works. The thing is the vast majority of people simply don’t know how to optimize their own microbiome.

The good news is our microbiomes are constantly changing, based on diet and environmental exposures, so you have a great deal of personal control. Also good is knowing that committing to improving your gut microbiome will do more than develop good bowel habits; you’ll likely experience easier weight loss, better health, improved mood and reduced risk of some cancers.

One of the simplest, easiest and most cost-effective ways of improving your gut diversity is to nourish your gut by eating fermented foods made with a starter culture and optimizing your vitamin D levels. The benefits of vitamin D are far reaching and impact your overall health in significant ways, as research now demonstrates that vitamin D receptors in the ileum of the small intestines and vitamin D deficiency are linked to dysbiosis, or microbial imbalance or maladaptation in the gut.

Increasing your fiber intake will also help. And, if you need a boost, probiotics are great for balancing your microbiome.
