Various factors affect the microorganisms residing in our gut. A good balance of the gut microorganisms leads to good health. Leucine Rich Bio, a pioneer in gut health has come up with a digital gut health evaluator that will provide you a snapshot of how your gut health is. This is based on the knowledge sourced from published research papers and our internal data. So please go ahead and test yourself!
Your microbiome shifts as you age. Age-associated shifts in the gut microbiome can contribute to diseases.
Pet ownership is associated with differences in the human gut microbiota and is shown to reduce some disease risks.
Exercise [independent of diet] can increase the number of beneficial microbial species, enrich microbial diversity, as well as enhance metabolism via microbiota.
Smoking contributes to modifications of the oral, lung and gut microbiome, leading to various diseases.
The circadian disruption by extended night work alters gut microbiota and partially elevate the risk for future metabolic and gastrointestinal diseases.
Reduced, restricted and fragmented sleep can have negative impact on your gut microbiome, which induces potential metabolic and cognitive changes.
Stress altered microbiome increase the level of inflammation in your gut, alter gut microbiota profiles, including lower numbers of potentially beneficial probiotics like Lactobacillus.
Vegetables, especially the high-fiber ones, are what your gut microbes crave for and are key components of microbiome diet.
High fruit intake is positively associated with beneficial human gut microbiome, decreased risk of chronic diseases.
Fermented food consumers have subtle but high impact differences in their gut microbiota structure, linked to health benefits.
Frequent eating of processed meat disturbs the bacterial community in the gut, significantly increase disease risks via microbiome.
Studies have linked diets that are high in red meat to gut microbiome to in turn to colon cancer, heart disease, stroke, and other diseases. While, some white/lean meat to positive benefits, when consumed moderately.
Consuming too much fast food and other dine out foods can develop greater levels of destructive bacteria.
Preexisting conditions, from moderate inflammation to chronic illnesses, can have a cyclical negative impact on gut microbiota.
Many commonly used drugs are found to impact gut microbial features. While, proton-pump inhibitors, antibiotics and laxatives strongest negative associations.
