Microbiome in gut

Microbiome importance

Dr. Radio
 
 
Ok, so I LOVE listening to the dr. radio show on Sirius XM (channel 110).  They always have some of the nation’s top doctors on discussing all sorts of things, but especially coronavirus. 
 
One of the interesting things a top dr./microbiologist was talking about last night was the gut’s microbiome and how that might affect being prone to getting the covid virus.  (This is currently being studied, among a number of other things).
 
What is the gut’s microbiome you say?  It’s all that bacteria that you need in there to fight off viruses and infections, cancers, etc. 
 
I am in no way saying this is a cure, just want to make that clear.  But why not improve our gut function and microbiome now since it is beneficial anyway.
 
How to do this?  Pre- and probiotics can certainly help.  How?
·      Eating yogurt daily,
·      getting your whole grains in:
·      whole wheat
·      brown rice
·      barley,
·      oatmeal
·      quinoa
·      legumes (black beans, chick peas, lentils, garbanzos, pinto beans, etc)
 
Fermented food (prebiotics):
·      kimchi
·      sauerkraut
·      miso,
·      kefir
·      tempeh
·      asparagus
·      garlic
·      chicory
·      onion
·      bananas
 
So there you have it!  Start incorporating more of these foods into your diet, and be sure to eat a varied diet to get a bit of all nutrients and you will be off to a good start!
