Diet is known to be one of the key drivers of microbiome variation. In our gastrointestinal tract, good and bad microorganisms coexist. While good bacteria regulates immunity, prevents infections, and helps produce nutrients; bad bacteria may cause intestinal inflammation, diarrhoea, constipation, depression, and in a worst-case scenario, colorectal cancer. Studies have pointed out that diet has a significant impact on gut health.
A Western diet may increase the risk of gut inflammation and weaken our defence against infection. For instance, a high intake of sweet and oily foods, refined grains, fried and processed foods, red meat and high-fat dairy products, and a lack of fruits and vegetables may destroy the gut microbiota. Conversely, healthy food such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, eggs, fish and unsaturated fats which are rich in fiber, oligosaccharides, minerals, vitamins and amino acids, can promote beneficial gut bacteria.
Three foods that promote beneficial gut bacteria:
Rich in fiber and protein, low in fat and calories, chickpeas have been labelled a super food in recent years. They can be used as a prebiotics to provide nutrition for good gut bacteria, improve the intestinal flora and bolster the integrity of the intestinal barrier.
Rich in anthocyanins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, all of which can protect cells, reduce inflammation and relieve gastrointestinal ulcer disease. Among them, the high concentration of anthocyanins can interact with microorganisms and be metabolized in the intestinal tract. Studies have shown that through this interaction, blueberries may change the composition of the gut microbiota.
Often referred to as a ‘super fruit’, blueberries are rich in dietary fiber and strengthen intestinal peristalsis.
Asparagus contains oligosaccharides, is low in sugar and calories, and helps lower blood sugar levels and cholesterol. It can also be fermented by the lactic acid bacteria to improve the gut microbiota. Oligosaccharides may contribute not only to selective growth of bifidobacteria, but also inhibit the growth of Salmonella and spoilage bacteria in the intestines, and improve the immune system of the human body and build the gut microbiome.
