Gut flora

Postby brennacraven » 19 Jan 2016, 10:13

Hi,

My question is about gut flora. Is there a way of feeding to promote good gut flora and enzymes etc?

My sister is questioning me on it and I don't know. Ie foods that are harder to digest aren't helping develop good gut flora for later in life

Thanks so much

I have no idea I'm afraid.

Is this her questioning blw or just a general query? And does she mean in babies or in adults too?

Maybe fermented foods? Something I keep meaning to do!

Yogurt is a perennial baby favourite with lots of good bacteria in. Mine have been known to sauerkraut... once.

Gut flora or, more appropriately, gut microbiota, consists of a complex community of microorganisms that live in the digestive tracts of animals.

Ah yes, but what do they eat?
