Dr. Mercola’s #1 Recommendation for Optimal Health

Good digestion function is a big key to feeling wonderful as a human being. There are more organisms in our body than there are cells in our bodies. What you eat has a tremendous impact on the living population in your intestine, for good or bad.

Most of the brain neurotransmitters are produced in the gut, not necessarily in brain.  May be a clue to why people suffer from moodiness, depression, fatigue, brain fog, and anxiety.

Benefits of Optimized Gut Bacteria

  • Immune system, also getting vitamin D from sunshine.
  • Detoxification
  • B Vitamins and K2
  • Helps Digestion
  • Fights depression

How to Optimize Gut Flora

  • Avoid sugar, too much sugar negates the benefits of other stuff you may be doing
  • No Grain Diet, is the title of Dr. Mercola’s first book. I have been avoiding all grains and it is working well for me.
  • Lots of fresh vegetables, a no brainer for anyone familiar with the Alkaline Diet
  • Fermented vegetables, like sauerkraut, kimchee, pickles, all kinds of veggies can be fermented.  The key is to get the stuff with live strains of bacteria. Pasteurized products don’t count.
  • Probiotics. Take a look at the quality, how many different strains and the actual count of living organisms. Fermented vegetables mentioned above make probiotic pills obsolete and unnecessary.
