Do you know we have the same number of bacteria in our body as the number of human cells that make us up? The majority of these bacteria live in our gut, comprising what is known as the gut microbiome.🌺
The science of gut microbiome is evolving so rapidly, sometimes it’s overwhelming for us physicians as well. Traditionally, gut microbiome was considered as crucial for our gut health, but now its role is also being linked to mental health (gut-brain communication), weight loss, heart health, and a reduced risk of several chronic diseases.🌺
And how do we maintain a healthy gut microbiome?
It’s good to start with the basics: Include one probiotic (containing friendly bacteria) at least once a day in your food. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is to have curds daily.🌺
