Infection Update | Holiday Pep Talk
From eNewsletter 12/21/2022
DID YOU KNOW that if you needed a little extra motivation to limit your sugar consumption during the holidays and New Year, maybe the results of this Cell study will help? The results state that added sugars and sweets greatly alter the gut microbiome, setting off a chain of events that leads to metabolic disease, pre-diabetes, and weight gain after only four weeks of consumption. The huge depletion of gut microbiota variance accelerated absorption of bad fats and initiated inflammation. The authors suggest that when choosing to reduce or eliminate sugars from your diet, it is best supplement short-term with a probiotic that will repopulate, as well as promote more gut microbial variety. Of course, never take a probiotic unless you discuss it with a knowledgable health professional first.
