Your modern diet and lifestyle may be directly affecting your gut. Our food has changed and too much sugar and too little plant polyphenols may be having a massive impact on your gut. Polyphenols are healthy parts of the peels, leaves, seeds and sprouts of plants that impact your gut microbiome. A diverse microbiome is the epicentre of your gut health.
A Modbiotic® is a group of natural compounds including polyphenols that help to maintain a healthy diverse microbiome. Probiotics add certain strains but you may already have enough of those same kinds or other tougher ones that won’t allow the probiotics to stick around and grow. Prebiotics may indiscriminately feed your bugs. Modbiotics® have a microbiome modifying effect.
Just as we look to fortify our diet with foods high in nutrients, vitamins and fibre to compensate for our changing foods, eating and farming we can now do the same thing with the for the lower levels of polyphenols in our foods by adding GUTRIGHT® modbiotics® into your diet.
What makes our gut healthy?
Having the right number of bugs and the right combination of species of bugs for your body is what you are striving for. Majority of these bugs live in and on us because they are in our environment and food. More often than not it is not a deficiency of microbes but usually a problem occurs when we get an overgrowth of the wrong types of bugs or even an overgrowth of what may be considered healthy bugs that disrupt the balance. We can have too much of a good thing.
Our eating has changed & our food has changed
Our food has changed due to farming techniques, harvesting, storage and food preparation techniques along with our food choices and purchases.
Per gram of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and grains, we now consume:
We eat a “balanced” diet but not a varied diet
We eat the same food all year round and we don’t eat with seasons. In nature, we would cycle between different fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and grains through the seasons. Eating what is fresh and available for the season and then having months off while we wait for it to return. We have been taught to have a balanced diet by balancing our food groups in each meal or day but we tend to select the same foods, our favorite foods to consume most days, all year round.
We do not have regular intermittent fasting. In nature we go through phases of feast and famine, our metabolism learns to adapt to changing ratios of protein, carbohydrates, and fats and eating at different times of the day.
Without this variation and change, there is a constant food supply for certain microorganisms and deficiencies of favorite foods for other microbes and that will fuel an overgrowth of some and deficiencies of others. We need diversity.
So, how can foods help this?
No. that just combines the above 2 points.
Modbiotics™ are naturally occurring chemicals found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and spices that we simply aren’t eating enough of in our modern lifestyle. You can add back some of the missing modbiotic compounds with GUTRIGHT™.
So, what is GutRight?
GutRight is a Modbiotic™ formulation. It is a concentrated form of naturally healthy modbiotic compounds that once was once found in abundance in our traditional diet, which was loaded with skins, peels, seeds and fibre.
GutRight is simply supporting the balance we once enjoyed when we ate a more natural diet. Just as we may supplement our diet to replace the deficient micronutrients with a multi formulation, or take extra fibre or supplement with oils; we can “spike” our diet with modbiotic compounds with GutRight.
