of all, chemicals are not bad! You’re made up of carbon too and chemicals are all over in your body.
gut has on an average 100 trillion organisms with over 1000+ species! Almost 60% of it remains the same for all people. - Gut diversity varies to accommodate your food habits and not vice versa, so people claiming- eating namakpare/ vada pav/ laddoo will help with your gut diversity, are misinformed! We also discussed if eating varied diet is better than eating monotonous diet, so far the researches don’t exist to help understand if x is better than y.
diets/ liquid diets are unhealthy and they deprive body of essential nutrients! - Fibre is the most important macronutrient that keeps your gut healthy! Vegetables are a must! Protien is the second most important macronutrient for your gut health!
’s not much difference between the micronutrient profile of organic vs inorganic foods, so there’s no point wasting your money! Same applies to processed and un-processed foods. The important thing is to not overeat. Unprocessed foods are easier to overeat.
probiotics only when needed! In some cases, they can actually damage your gut microbiota! Healthy people do not require probiotics!
are no studies which show that caffeine is bad for your gut below supra-physiological levels, there are however studies which suggest that caffeine can help reduce all cause mortality. Coffee stimulates gastrin release which increases gut motility and some people might not be best candidates for caffeine, however no ill effects are reported in healthy people.
