We still know very little about the human micro biome, but we do know these 3 foods seem to help by increasing the beneficial bacteria.
1. FIBRE. Eat a wide variety of high-fiber plant foods every single day, including vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
2. PREBIOTIC FOODS include onions, garlic, leeks, shallots, asparagus, beets, cabbage, beans, lentils, organic soybeans, whole wheat, oats, and bananas.
3. FERMENTED FOODS. Yogurt with live and active cultures, kefir (a fermented yogurt drink), kombucha tea, unpasteurized organic miso and tempeh (fermented soybean cake), and fermented vegetables with live cultures such as pickles, sauerkraut, and kimchi (look for these in the refrigerated section of your health food store) grocery store – shelf-stable jars don’t contain live bacteria.
