Science Cafe – Gut Health

I recall this from last time: Gut Microbes are 150 times our own genetic make up – we are as much microbe. Radio of human to bacteria is 1:1. Ergo we are as much bacteria as human.

How to nurture microbes:
Fiber, celery, nuts. Variety of fiber.
Antioxidents, onion, broccoli.
Pro biotics such as Kefir (Archers), Miso, blue cheese.
Sleep and fasting – the 5/2

Function of gut bacteria – kills harmful bacteria, reduces gut pH, epigenetics, gut barrier, stronger immune system
