What is The Microbiome?
Today we answer the question: “what is microbiome”?
Microbiome refers to the miniature world consisting of trillions of microorganisms that lives in your digestive tract. It is truly another organ that we have. The microbiome is often overlooked, as it is invisible to us, but those bacteria orchestrate your digestion, immune system, nourishment, appetite, mood, overall metabolism and if the microbiome is not in balance you will see it on your skin.
Food and Your Microbiome
The foods that you eat dictate which spectrum of your microbiome will be dominant. Eat processed foods, pizzas, fried foods, sugary drink and alike and a bad spectrum will prevail. Eat more green veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds and fermented foods and good bacteria will dominate.
When your microbiome is out of balance – meaning bad bacteria have taking over – then the following symptoms will make themselves present:
- brain fog
- joint pain
- weight gain
- joint pain
- and many more
Balancing your microbiome is crucial in preventing major illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome and other disorders.
The good bacteria in your microbiome we call probiotics. Probiotics need to be fed with prebiotic foods in order to win the never ending fight that is going on in your intestinal tract. Some of the best prebiotic foods include:
- green vegetables
- raw nuts and seeds
Your good bacteria needs to be replenished with fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, yogurt, tofu, kombucha.
Your microbiome is a very dynamic ecosystem. The lifespan of bacteria is usually less than one hour so once you start feeding probiotics (good bacteria) they will quickly come to dominate your microbiome.
Probiotics and Skincare
Probiotics are the key force behind producing a rich array of nutrients crucial to healthy bodies and skin. This is one of the reasons why the top skin care trend in 2019 will continue to be probiotic products.
Skin care with probiotics will deliver to your skin the same nutrients as if it was produced by your own gut microflora. The only difference is that it is applied topically (directly on your skin). The Skins’ ability to absorb nutrients will help deliver these nutrients deep in to the skin tissues. Probiotic nutrients are concentrated, bioavailable and rich in vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants and other bio nutrients that are key to your health and glowing skin.
In addition to a healthy diet, topical probiotic skin care will also help to achieve glowing and healthy looking skin.
Take good care of your microbiome and enjoy the many health benefits that will follow. Please visit us at www.nayelle.com for more information on probiotics and skin care.
