Learn what leaky gut is, how to know if you have it, and what to do about it in this post! #leakygut #guthealth #intestinalpermeability

What Is A Leaky Gut And How Can It Cause So Many Health Issues?

However, the body of scientific literature showing that increased intestinal permeability is inextricably linked to diverse diseases is convincing.

In this week's new blog post, I wrote a very detailed breakdown on what we know so far about the links between covid-19 and the gut. #covid19 #coronavirus #guthealth Health Matters, Gut Health, Health Fitness, Paleo Mom, Paleo Diet, Chronic Kidney Disease, Autoimmune Disease, Gut Microbiome, Fiber Diet

Covid-19 and the Gut | The Paleo Mom

Although there’s still plenty we don’t know about preventing and treating covid-19, one topic that we should be paying close attention to is the gut microbiome. Research is increasingly suggesting that the collection of critters in our lower GI tract could play a role in the infection process of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the severity …

The Health Benefits of Berries

Berries are an extremely ancient food in the human diet, with evidence of being a seasonal staple for prehistoric hunter-gatherers. And, science has given us plenty of reasons to keep eating them today! These nutrient-dense superfoods are linked with diverse health benefits, including reducing inflammation, lowering cardiovascular disease risk, lowering cancer risk, improved cognition, improved …

The Power of Medicinal Mushrooms: An Overview ~ The Paleo Mom

Mushrooms are an incredibly valuable nutrient-dense food that offers our gut bacteria unique fiber types that we can’t get from any other food.

In this week's episode of The Whole View, Stacy and I discuss how some non-Paleo foods might actually be good for many of us, and I use the science on corn as an example of a more sophisticated approach to determining which foods fall under the 80% versus the 20%, and who a food like corn may or may not work for. #guthealth #corn #healthychoices Paleo Mom, Gut Health, Superfood, Healthy Choices, Paleo Recipes, A Food, Against All Grain

Eating Carbohydrates to Get Enough Fiber

The short answer is… it depends! It depends on what our goals are, how far away we are from those goals, and how active our lifestyles are.

There are many people out there who will tell you that cooking vegetables destroys the nutrients and beneficial enzymes within. This is partially true. It is also true that cooking vegetables makes many of the nutrients within more easily absorbed and used by your body. So, which is better: Eating vegetables raw or cooked?

Is It Better to Eat Veggies Raw or Cooked? ~ The Paleo Mom

Cooking enhances the energy we get from food, while degrading some micronutrients and enhancing others. Raw or cooked fiber from vegetables also supports different types of bacteria in the gut microbiome. The verdict on raw or cooked vegetables? Read to find out!

Learn everything you need to know about gut health

Our gut microbes perform many different essential functions that help us to stay healthy. In fact, about 90% of all disease can be traced back to the health of the gut and our gut microbiomes. The good news is that our gut bacteria composition is very sensitive to both our short-term choices and long-term habits, particularly when it comes to diet and lifestyle—meaning there’s a metric ton we can do starting today to support a healthy gut microbiome (and therefore a healthy us). With an…

This week on The Whole View, Stacy and I revisit the science on cooking fats.  When viewed through the lens of the gut microbiome, it becomes clear that the fats that have gotten a lot of attention in the Paleo community aren't actually the healthiest choices, and some of the fats that have been relegated to salad dressings are actually the best ones to cook with!

The Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar ~ The Paleo Mom

When we think about the benefits of consuming fermented foods, we tend to focus on fermented vegetables (like sauerkraut, kimchee, and pickles), kombucha and kefir (see The Health Benefits of Fermented Foods). But, apple cider vinegar also deserves a spot on the fermented food pedestal of fame. Apple cider vinegar, or ACV, is made in …

Although there’s still plenty we don’t know about preventing and treating covid-19, one topic that we should be paying close attention to is the gut microbiome. Research is increasingly suggesting that the collection of critters in our lower GI tract could play a role in the infection process of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the severity of covid-19 (the disease resulting from the viral infection). Indeed, the gut may offer important clues about how to manage our risk and protect our health!

In our diet, the best sources of glutamine include broth, seafood (especially crustaceans like shrimp, crab, and lobster, but also saltwater fish), organ meats, poultry, pork, red meat, and protein-rich dairy. Certain plant foods like cabbage, asparagus, and broccoli are also rich in glutamine!

The Role of Glutamine in Gut Health

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in our body, and it also plays a major role in the health and function of the gut. In fact, ample research shows that glutamine influences our gut health in two important ways: one, through its effects on the gut barrier, and secondly, through its effects on our …

Because the polyphenols in tea aren’t completely absorbed in the GI tract, they can reach the microbiota in the colon and get metabolized by bacteria there, leading to the release of important metabolites.

The Health Benefits of Tea

Tea is one of the most versatile and well-loved beverages out there! It can help us kickstart a sleepy morning, or it can keep us company on a cold winter day. In the 4000-plus years since its origin, tea has become one of the most popular beverages in the world (second only to water). And, …
