Scientists Determined Which Foods Are Best for Healthy Gut Microbiome

The researchers suggest that this type of diet may become a treatment for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.Scientists Determined Which Foods Are Best for Healthy Gut Microbiome

Within the scope of the study, a team of scientists grouped 160 dietary factors under seven food patterns and looked at their anti-inflammatory effects across four cohorts of participants which included patients with Crohn’s disease, patients with ulcerative colitis, the general population, and patients with irritable bowel syndrome.

The researchers had the following groups of food patterns: plant-based diet, plant protein, animal protein, low-fat fermented dairy. Mediterranean dietary pattern, bread, and legumes plus fish and nuts, and meat, potatoes, and gravy plus sweets, sugar, fast food, and soft drinks.

The researchers conclude in their paper: “A diet characterized by nuts, fruits, greater vegetable and legume intake than animal protein, combined with moderate consumption of animal-derived foods like fish, lean meat, poultry, fermented low-fat dairy, and red wine, and a lower intake of red meat, processed meat, and sweets, is beneficially associated with the gut ecosystem.”
