Maintaining the right balance of good bacteria in the gut is essential for great health!
Why do we need 'good bacteria'?
The ‘good bacteria’ determines:
- The strength of your immunity,
- Regulates weight loss,
- Recovery & healing,
- Colon health,
- Toxicity in the body
- and several other functions.
A shortage of these bacteria can also be the leading cause of allergies, skin problems, headaches, migraines, inability to lose weight and even contribute towards piling on fat. Energy levels of the person fall when there is an imbalance.
Many lifestyles that we adopt deplete the gut of the ‘ good’ bacteria’ and that’s where all health problems begin.
What foods include good bacteria?
It therefore follows that, diet is the most important element when it comes to building gut health. Your diet should include curds such as kefir and plain yogurt or a probiotic supplement if you are vegan.
Miso, Sauekraut, Kimchi, Kombucha tea, Pickled gherkins, Spirulina and Chlorella are excellent examples of natural probiotic rich foods.
Moringa also contain plenty of vitamins and mineral, which is also rich in fibre and has antibacterial activity. More importantly, moringa contains isothiocyanates shown to protect against Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, which has been implicated in ulcers, acid reflux, and gastric cancer.

Your diet should also be rich in complex carbs, fiber, fruits, vegetables, omega 3 and you should have a healthy water intake and low intake of sugar, processed foods and red meat.
