Eating for your Microbiome

Microbiome-640x353.jpg

As humans, we begin to build our microbiome the moment we are born. How and where we’re born play a big role in the types of microbes we acquire. Babies pick up microbes from every person or thing they touch, and continue to pick up microbes throughout their lives. The microbiome isn’t fixed; it develops over time and changes in response to its environment.

At Restorasis, we believe that nutritional deficiencies may be at the root of many chronic diseases. Our innovative nutritional tests can help identify specific, personalized nutritional recommendations for even the most difficult–to–treat cases. Our broad array of testing options provide our healthcare practitioners the tools to guide nutritional treatment to precision, often augmenting and speeding recovery of complex chronic diseases.

Analyzing YOUR Microbiome

The foods we eat have a big influence on our microbiomes. Many microbes in our guts help us extract nutrients from food we wouldn’t otherwise be able to digest. Different microbes thrive on different types of food. You can stimulate the growth of good bacteria (also known as probiotics) in your gut by eating specific foods the bacteria are known to thrive on.  These foods are known as prebiotics.
