1. Increase Your Daily Fiber Intake

Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and beans are the best sources of nutrients for a healthy microbiota (good bacteria).They are high in fiber, which can’t be digested by your body. However, fiber can be digested by certain bacteria in your gut, which stimulates their growth.

2. Eat Fermented Food

Fermented food like yoghurt, kimchi, kefir, kombucha, and tempeh are altered by microbes. These are rich in lactobacilli, a type of bacteria that can benefit your health.

3. Avoid Artificial Sweetener

Recent studies on artificial sweeteners discovered that they disrupt gut bacteria and make them toxic. Apparently, it takes only 1mg/ml for the substance to adversely affect gut bacteria.

4. Consume Foods Rich In Polyphenols

Polyphenols are plant compounds with many health benefits. They can’t be absorbed well by our stomach cells and make their way to the colon, where they can be digested by gut bacteria- stimulating its growth.Good sources of polyphenols are- cocoa, dark chocolate, grape skins, green tea, almonds, onions, blueberries, and broccoli.

5. Take Probiotic & Prebiotic Supplements

Additional probiotic supplements change the overall composition of the microbiota in our gut, supporting metabolism. While prebiotics assists to promote the growth of beneficial microbes in the gut.
