Gut health: Dr. Chris George explains how to improve the microbiome

Gut health research has increased tenfold over the past decade as we become more aware of the impact it has on our health – physical and mental. From hormone production to food digestion, it even houses 70% of the immune system. Everything you eat triggers a different gut reaction, and some foods fare worse than others.

The digestive system is considered “the second brain”, due to the millions of neurotransmitters that reside here, so it’s important to fill your body with as many beneficial nutrients as possible to keep it nourished – and of course, avoid those that could. jeopardize it.

Dr Christina Papadopolous, general practitioner at Livi told Express.co.uk: “Not only does the human gut contain trillions of bacteria, also known as ‘gut flora’, but the relationship between your gut and these bacteria plays a vital role in maintaining your overall health.

“Generally, the more diversity in your gut flora composition, the better for you.”

The gut flora tends to include beneficial bacteria, often referred to as “friendly bacteria”, and other less friendly bacteria.

Food plays an essential role in the production of these bacteria, for better or for worse, hence the need to be attentive to the impacts that certain foods can have, in order to better monitor their consumption.

Bloating, fatigue, extreme food cravings, constipation, weight fluctuations, skin irritations and acne are all symptoms of poor gut health.

If you are suffering from any of these issues, it may be a problem that can be resolved by looking within.

Gut health tips: Excessive gluten consumption can cause leaky gut (Image: GETTY)

Express.co.uk spoke to experts Dr Jess Braid, MD, Functional Medicine Practitioner at Audio and Dr. Christina Papadopolous on which items you should avoid to improve your gut health.

Large amounts of sugar and artificial sweeteners

Dr Braid said: “While diet is the most obvious gut villain, many people don’t really understand the real gut-damaging culprits in our diets.

She continued: “Following the 40-year misinformation campaign about the dangers of too much fat in our diets, the dangers of sugar in our diets have been downplayed.

“Sugar, particularly fructose, which is a sugar derived from fruits, has been shown to cause leaky gut, disrupt the microbiome, and cause fatty liver disease.”

She adds: “85% of people in the UK eat more than the recommended amount of sugar per day.

While we’re at it, it might be a good idea to cut back on artificial sweeteners as well.

Dr Papadopolous said: “Some research has shown that artificial sweeteners including aspartame, sucralose and saccharin – often found in diet, calorie-free, sugar-free drinks – have a negative impact on your gut flora, altering negatively the composition.

“This alteration has been shown in some studies to be related to glucose intolerance.

“More research is needed, but it might be a good idea to limit your intake of artificial sweeteners if you hope to improve your gut health.”

hold back the wheat

Dr Braid said: “Wheat and white flour, in particular, are highly processed and inflammatory for our digestive system.

“The way wheat is produced has changed dramatically over the past 100 years, making it a grain you may now wish to avoid in order to improve your overall health and well-being.”

She continued, “Modern wheat is very high in gluten and gluten-related disorders are increasing in incidence all over the world.

“Gluten increases the permeability of the gut wall, making it more permeable, in everyone, not just people with celiac disease.

“When the gut wall leaks, it makes us more prone to immune system problems and autoimmune diseases.”

Red wine

Reduce consumption of inflammatory oils

Dr. Braid advises reducing your intake of inflammatory fats in processed foods, especially those made with omega-6s.

These include sunflower oil, corn oil, rapeseed oil and soybean oil.

She said: “These can be extremely damaging, creating intestinal inflammation and leaky gut.”

However, the good news is that increasing your intake of omega-3 fatty acids can help counter this – so stock up on fish, nuts and seeds.

Avoid ultra-processed foods

Dr Braid said: “Eating a varied, healthy and balanced diet is one of the best ways to ensure your body gets the nutrients it needs – but the average person in the UK now consumes more of the half of her daily calories from ultra-processed, low-nutrient foods.

She continued, “Vitamin D, in particular, has been shown to regulate the gut barrier, microbiome, and affect inflammation in the gut.

As the nutritional quality of our foods declines, often due to over-processing, long transportation distances and extended storage times, vitamin D levels decline, impacting the regulation intestinal.

Cut back on your alcohol intake – or at least switch to red wine!

Dr Papadopolous said: “Heavy alcohol consumption can alter the balance of bacteria in your gut and encourage the growth of bad bacteria.

“Not only is too much alcohol bad for your gut health, it can have a serious negative effect on your overall physical and mental well-being.

However, she adds, “Some studies have shown that red wine consumed in moderation may have a protective effect on gut bacteria due to the polyphenol content – ​​a type of plant chemical that gut microbes love.

“It might be a good idea to replace your usual drink with a glass of red wine, but remember that moderation is always key.”

I just did moonlight aerobics on an Ibiza rooftop with a gorgeous man with huge biceps and really tight leggings. Last week I played table tennis in a James Bond style chalet in the mountains. I even hung out with Lady Gaga in what looked like a set of The hunger Games.

How did I get so lucky? Because they’re not actually real – they exist in my Oculus Meta Quest 2 headset (from £299, oculus.com), which I tested. Never heard of an Oculus? It’s a virtual reality (VR) contraption that looks a bit like sci-fi goggles, and when you put it on, it transports you to a 360-degree fantasy world that feels so real, it’s like you’re there. actually were. When I put the headphones on today, I found myself in South America, standing by a beautiful vacation home, with birds flying in the blue sky above and rush mats under my feet. It was so convincing I could almost smell the sunscreen.

Susannah is put to the test virtually

VR headsets started out as an immersive gaming experience, but are now a huge trend in the fitness world, where you can box with a virtual personal trainer, learn street dancing, meditate, and join classes with others. I’ll be honest, as someone who writes about the benefits of getting outside to exercise and has never played a video game in their life, it’s not something that has ever seduced. Besides, isn’t all this a little “young” for a 46-year-old man? But then I tried. First, it’s impossible not to be wowed by the hyper-real graphics that move the way you do. When I play table tennis against a cyber opponent, it’s a really skillful game.

One of the most popular apps to download once you’ve got the headset is FitXR (£7.99 per month, fitxr.com) where you can train with virtual boxing, cardio or dance trainers. You not only choose the type of exercise you want to do, but also the location.

How does it compare to an actual gym class? This is a difficult work. I squat and lunge, my heart rate quickens, I’m out of breath and I’m sweating – a lot. And with levels ranging from beginner to advanced, there’s a workout for everyone. The only downside I would say is that there is no one to correct your form which could lead to injury.

Susannah Taylor tries a virtual exercise

Another hugely popular app is Beat Saber (£22.99, beatsaber.com), where you slash colorful boxes that fly at your head with a Star Wars-style lightsaber, while dodging other obstacles. There are plenty of stories on the internet about how it helps with mental focus but also encourages weight loss – one fan in particular lost 138lbs in a matter of months. How did I find it? I liked it. I felt part dancer, part Princess Leia, part Katniss Everdeen. And that’s the best thing about virtual reality: you can do things you can’t do in real life – it’s like being in an action movie.

If this all sounds terribly futuristic, it is. However, exercise gamification is growing rapidly – last month saw the launch of Lanebreak, the virtual cycle lane from home exercise brand Peloton that challenges you to pedal harder and faster to improve your physical condition. With celebrity instructors and brilliant music, Peloton has managed to make fitness not only fun, but also help you forget you’re working out.

Would I buy the Oculus for myself? In other words, if I ‘bought one for the kids’, you might find me, lightsaber in hand, borrowing it while they’re at school.

The right intestinal guide

In his new book Great Gut (Yellow Kite, £14.99*) Cardiologist and best-selling author Dr William Davis explores how processed diets, pesticides and overuse of antibiotics have damaged our microbiome. It includes a four-week plan to reset our gut, flush out the good bacteria and flush out the bad, while rebooting our emotional health, promoting anti-aging, and encouraging weight loss and better sleep.

*To order a copy for £12.74 until March 27, go to books.mailshop.co.uk or call 020 3176 2937. Free UK delivery on orders over £20.

A greener cleaner

According to research, harsh cleaning chemicals are not beneficial for lung health. They also end up in sewers and our rivers, which is why I loved using Purdy & Figg’s Eco-Concentrate Surface Cleaner Starter Kit. For £15 (purdyandfigg.com), it includes a reusable glass spray bottle and a shot of Eco-Concentrate (which comes in three essential oil scents). To use, simply add the concentrate to the bottle and top up with tap water.
