There is good evidence to support the health benefit claims of some fermented products, including sauerkraut, kimchi and kefir. These are great sources of probiotics and adequate and regular. There is good evidence to support the health benefit claims of some fermented products, including sauerkraut, kimchi and kefir. These are great sources of probiotics and adequate and regular. A healthy Ayurvedic diet includes fermented foods, such as yogurt, amasai and miso.

Many different seasonal vegetables may be fermented to prolong how long they are edible, such as asparagus, beets, cabbage, carrots, cilantro, fennel root (anise), garlic, green beans. The most popular probiotic of the fermented foods family, yogurt is made by adding two strains of bacteria, Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus, into pasteurized milk. The milk. Gut health was a topic of my fourth book, “Flat Belly 365,” which included recipes and meal plans containing probiotics and fermented foods.

Now, I want to share this knowledge with you. Now, I want. The foods that give your body beneficial probiotics are those fermented using natural processes and containing probiotics.

Live cultures are found in not only yogurt and a yogurt-like drink called kefir, but also in Korean pickled vegetables called kimchi, sauerkraut, and in some pickles. 3 hours ago · Studies show that a majority of people do not know what fermented foods let alone their health benefits. These are the healthiest foods that play one of the vital roles in boosting gut health. Ever since gut health first entered the wellness conversation, fermented foods such as kimchi, yogurt, and sauerkraut have been widely praised for their ability to keep digestion on point.

Fermented foods like kimchi, kefir and sauerkraut contain the beneficial byproducts of fermentation, as well as live microbes to boost your gut diversity and support better mental and physical performance. Retaining living microbes when consumed is not enough for a fermented food to be considered a natural source of probiotics. A recent review edited by Kevin Whelan highlights that only dairy fermented foods such as yoghurt.

  • Serious question: Could one gain the beneficial gut bacteria of a healthy person such as Dr. Rhonda Patrick by performing analingus on her? Have any clinical studies been conducted?

  • With all due respect to all this Researchers, This discovery is true 100%
    .
    Ayurveda teaches the same concept whatever you spoke of. There is textual reference for every thought provoking you explained there.
    I can’t explain everything, but trying to communicate..
    Ayurveda has numerous treatment technique out of which,
    Vamana (Emesis)
    Virechana (Purgatory therapy)
    Basti (Enema therapy).
    All this 3 treatments use herbal, herbomineral drugs/formulations after proper assessment of the patient n disease condition. This drugs help in accumulating all the aggravated dosha (Aggravated Humors) into our G. I track n then eliminate them out of our body.
    .
    All this processes are connected to gut genome concept he is speaking of.
    .
    The circadian rhythm of gut thing you mentioned is also true, in fact Ayurveda has clearly explained it as AGNI (Digestive fire/power) of the person n it’s variations according to time/day/night/place/season.
    There is lot to explain, Indian youths should appreciate their own science, learn about it, there is lot to explore.
    Nowadays Ayurveda is gaining back it’s true legacy.

  • So…our genome is “unbelievably complex”..and yet we are then told that it “evolved”… utilizing an infinite sequence of mutations…astronomically improbable…next…

  • Just wanted add a note about why some women don’t breastfeed because I’m part of a large community of women who had to use formula because their body’s didn’t work for them. Some women, like me, try everything imaginable and still aren’t able to breastfeed because for some reason my body didn’t develop the glandular tissue during puberty/pregnancy needed to make milk. I spent 10 weeks using a supplemental nursing system and pumping every 2 hours but still wasn’t able to produce even close to 1oz total, both sides, in a 24 hr period. It was probably the most heartbreaking experience of my life. I really wish someone would start researching why a seemingly healthy women like me would have an issue like this instead of just assuming women use formula because they find it easier.

  • Lifestyle cell division to help to help the the gallbladder just giving yourself permission to be you the mystery of holding potential of the immune system you’re the only qualified person to give yourself you

  • You talk about antibiotics being used in the animals that we eat and the reasoning being that “they get fatter quicker and go to market quicker.” Antibiotics are used in animals because it would be cruel to let animals under your care suffer from diseases that are treatable. Just like you would give your dog an antibiotic if it needed one, we give our farm animals antibiotics when they are suffering from bacterial infections. Animals are not allowed to go to market if they have antibiotics detected in their system. Yes, their microbiome might have changed because of it, but we take the same risk as people when we need antibiotics.

  • In a study involving 271 participants, consumption of meat, egg, or fish was not associated with TMAO, choline, or betaine concentrations. I thought it was maybe like a bad study, after watching this I’m wondering if the individuals were just vegans prior to study, so their gut biomes didn’t have the TMAO producing bacteria available at time of study. Wondering, has anybody else read about that particular study? and has there been other studies to suggest the opposite to be true? thank you in advance.

  • My family comes from a country where the only staple foods available to normal people were: Beans, sauerkraut (they put it pretty much everywhere), cooked cabbage with meat and lard, eggs, pork, beef, chicken, naturally prepared ham, some types of vegetables and some types of fruit like apples, cherries, grapes and pears (too cold for other types of fruit), corn bread, pickled cabbage, pickled tomatoes, pickled cucumbers, cereals were almost inexistent, frying food was a rarity as most of it was boiled, grilled or steamed. Alcohol was used but it was made pretty much of just grapes and some other berries, no additives or any other stuff was added. Pastry was used a lot with meat and yogurt. By the way yogurt was eaten 3 times a day. My grandfather died when he was 98 in his bed and was incredibly active until the day he died. All his cousins, siblings, friends died after 90 and all were very active. Studying the medical history of the nation, until recently they have never had deadly diseases such as ALS, cancer, etc. The only “diseases” people there had was flu. PS. Sugar was never ever used because desserts were never part of the culture of this country. People there used to eat desserts only twice a year. i.e. on Christmas Day and Easter day furthermore nobody had 3 meals a day. Last but not least, antibiotics or any other type of medication was inexistent and shocker, nobody was vaccinated. The point is that today greedy corporations are making us sick by putting poison in our foods. Even bread has additives nowadays. The more people are ill the more money they make. Sad truth.

  • What can I say again and again…thank you Dr. Greger..since I see the video…I am not trus the most Doctors….it is not easy to find a plantbased Dr. in Germany…
    Thank for the translater without hIm would be not possible to understand and I learn more english!!! Thanks Alexander Stagun

  • I heard many doctors recommending a whole food plant based diet to obtain a healthy gut microbiome, the more i study about this the more i’m convinced by these recommendations ��

  • Eggs seems to be 100% fine further study and results.

    “A study in 2016 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked at more than 1,000 middle-aged Finnish men and found that neither eggintake (one a day, on average) nor cholesterol intake was associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease. This was true even among those who had a particular genetic factor that affects cholesterol metabolism and therefore put them at higher risk. There was also no significant impact on the thickening of the carotid artery (the main artery going to the brain), which is an indicator of hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis).

    Similarly, an analysis of eight observational studies, published in 2013 in BMJ, found no relationship between eggs (up to one a day, on average) and heart disease or stroke in half a million people who were followed for 8 to 22 years.

    More recently, an analysis of seven studies, published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in 2016, found that people who had a high egg intake (generally considered seven a week) had a 12 percent reduced risk of stroke compared with those who had a low egg intake (less than two eggs a week), after the researchers accounted for such variables as smoking, age, sex, and exercise in most of the studies”

  • Yeah I think ppl should research more before telling others what to do. I am from south America and green bananas is known to bind you up. Meaning you cant poop when you eat green bananas.

  • There are companies emerging now that claim to test our microbiome and make specific dietary and supplemental recommendations based on these findings (e.g., Viome, ThryveInside). Not pressuring you to endorse anyone, but I’m just wondering whether you think there’s any merit to these tests? I have IBS, lymphocytic colitis and a hiatal hernia/GERD. I went vegan approx 8 months ago but still struggle with episodes of GI problems. Wondering if a test like this would help me figure out what, within a plant-based diet, will help me stay on track.

  • It is apparent that those who are making money off of products that make our health decline, don’t really care About the ill effects their products have on people. They only care about profit. It is up to us, the consumer, to beware.

  • Love when the Onion pus out these satirical fake nutrition vids that pretend to skewer “experts” still toeing the government party line about how fat makes you fat. (This same actress also appears in the famous viral vid from The Onion where she “proves” that cold causes colds AND butterflies in your stomach are ACTUAL butterflies!)

  • Can you guys PLEASE differentiate between animal fat and plant fat. It gets very confusing. She said high fat foods should be avoided because its harmful.. Okay great but does this include high fat plant foods like nut butters or avocados? Should we limit these foods or can we eat these foods abundantly?
    It is okay to eat a high fat diet (over 20% of calories) if the fats are coming from whole (or minimally processed) plants? If not, could you explain why and with sources? Thanks!

  • i could do an incredible thing to help to understand of the microbiome. some engineering and an Ai could really help map out the best contenders in the microbiome and slowly as we grow our training data learn all of their attributes. it’s just like AI Zelda, just on a different video input plain. could even add a 3d telescope to record 150x+ at 120 fps, the idea is it follows the life of each specimen long term and follows the evolution

  • Would eating at a reputable (keg) restaurant kill my micro biome in my GIT?
    When I eat out I get gassy bloated and loose stool. The food looked and tasted good. Suspecting MSG ya the least.

  • good to see a lad who lifts weights and ain’t a bloody dumbass!! take note people steroids and unnatural supplements rott your brain!!

  • You have to eat a wide variety of foods for a rich and healthy microbiome. You diet should be mostly non starchy plant based foods but every once in awhile you got too get dirty ������ (meat, fish, white rice, potato’s, salt, etc)

  • I like everything you say, practice and force feed your vids to people (most still don’t listen, and suffer). But I hate to see your legs. That is for your husband. Advertise your head/ideas.
    I don’t know the limit I can run bare footed in shorts only in sub zero temps in my dry fast day.

  • I would like to know how destructive is raw honey to our microbiome. How much is to much? How to eat it. This past winter after a bad flu I noticed a change in my regularly after emptying the shelves of Manuka honey of my local Whole Foods

  • Do you know if Sodium Butyrate (Butyric Acid formula C4H702Na linear formula CH3CH2CH2COONa), inside of supplement capsules, is the very SAME that’s given to animals (pigs, cattle, sheep etc)??? (NOT to confuse it with Indole 3 Butyric Acid which is a plant hormone) Thank you very much in advance for your honesty when replyig!

  • I’ll never touch another antibiotic. I have been so uneducated and the antibiotics and steroids have destroyed me. I have been fighting to rebuild my system for 10 months and it’s terrible. Smh it’s an awful awful thing.

  • I don’t know why every Ted Talk is so annoying somehow. I guess it’s the weird way they’re talking every time? They drive me nuts it doesn’t matter who the speaker is or what the topic is I cannot stand listening to Ted Talks.

  • Some people advocate the use of HCL and digestive enzymes in older folks and claim that as you age, your body produces less and less stomach acid and enzymes and therefore supplementation is necessary…do you agree?

  • How many types of bacteria are SERVING us??? Their DNA was called by evolutionists “vestigial” from the monkeys that they been (and still are).

  • This is so important! Most people don’t even understand how gut health is directly connected to good mental health too! Ever since I started taking Florajen Probiotics I stopped feeling bloated and my mood swings have gotten so much better!!

  • When you mentioned multi level marketing company I automatically thought okay here’s the smoke and mirrors bullshit response. MLM is an acronym for snake oil.

  • 3 years ago my health was permanently destroyed by an antibiotic, a Fluoroquionolone (do some research for your own good). Anyway, even if my body was destroyed in so many aspects, my guts were still completely fine. But a year ago I made the mistake to take a “probiotic” containing S. Boulardii. It gave terrible constipation and IBS symptoms. The symptoms persist to these days. I find particularly difficult to digest plants and legumes. I’ve never been a vegan, always wanted to try it, but now, how am I supposed to do? I still eat eggs and fish. I’ve tried so many probiotics, but things never changed. Any ideas?

  • Now, an international team of researchers led from the University of Copenhagen and Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen report when 3 antibiotics were given to young healthy men for 4 days it caused an almost complete eradication of gut bacteria, followed by a gradual recovery of most bacterial species over a period of six months.

    After the six months, however, the study participants were still missing nine of their common beneficial bacteria and a few new potentially non-desirable bacteria had colonized the gut. The findings are published today in Nature Microbiology.

    So how are you supposed get bacteria back that is completely gone?

  • What fermented foods are keto friendly? I saw a video claiming fermented foods even though they are sugar neutralized can cause a sugar craving? Also just in general which fermented foods are best for low carb?

  • Hi! I have a question! I have been using fermented foods for a while. The question I have is: Is it best to eat them before the hot food or after? I know that heat and probiotics don’t usually go together as heat kills the friendly bacteria that is in fermented foods!

  • I have been culturing vegies off and on for years, but never thought to use celery juice per your suggestion. I did today and am eager to see the results!!!

  • My mother was diagnosed with Schizophrenia 32 years ago and was on Antipsychotic medicines since then, I cured her Schizophrenia in less than a year by adding fermented foods and removing inflammatory food items from her diet. Simple. She is free from all medicines for last one year.

  • So fermicutis is an evolutionary response to being cavemen where food wasn’t guaranteed. We now have an abundance of food which leads to our bodies storing all the calories since we aren’t effectively burning it? Interesting…

  • Probiotics are available everywhere, there should be probiotics for Vegans, and those designed for Meateaters. I want only the healthy probiotics, not the common ones for the average SAD eater….

  • It’s not a question of eating meat. It’s a question of eating adequate vegetables. Meat is a condiment not a staple. The problem with Vegan/Vegetarian diets is people consume too many carbohydrates which leads to metabolic syndrome. India is case in point. How about India for sample vegetarian population huge. China on the other hand is meat eating yet hardly has any metabolic syndrome. In the US most vegans & vegetarians are overweight cuz our society has yet fully develop vegetarian protein sources. This needs lot more attention & subsidisation veggie proteins like meat to mitigate chronic diseases. Plan based diet is a catchy phrase but there is no such thing. Plants are part of well balanced diet. Lots of plant foods are horrible. Not withstanding these facts this video presumes TMAO is the only source of heart disease, there are many others

  • No one knows what the treatments should be in the microbiome area. A person could get bad bugs along with one or two good bugs. It’s interesting. But there’s no precision. It’s all very experimental to the level where you don’t know what is being transplanted.

  • All vegans support child abuse and murder. Vegan child abusing murdering mums who feed there baby’s on synthetic man made plant poison all die due to eating poison. Not one baby survives. Were are vegan ethics on that. These vegan child abusing murdering mums should be jailed for murder. And this is acceptable to the vegan community. What sane person would put animals before there own flesh and blood. Its a evil religious cult.

  • I’ve been a long time vegan of 13 years and my blood and urine analysis showed very low l-carnitine levels, so my doctor has me supplementing. I wasn’t aware this was a supplement I would need to be concerned about going vegan. Unfortunately the information here isn’t clear if l-carnitine supplements will contribute to this tmao concern in a case like mine. A functional medicine doctor prescribed me them, and as someone who studies the human microbiome, I can’t begin to understand why he’d possibly risk more damage to my gut…

  • Thank you Dr Patrick for your work. You’re channel serves as inspiration for me as I am about to start college as a molecular and cell biology major. I have a question on gluten. I have read a lot about how it is very inflammatory and has lead to the degradation of the epithelial cell wall in the gut leading to leaky gut syndrome (right?). Considering gluten is found in wheat, is it something I should avoud despite being a whole grain with dietary fiber? Thanks again

  • I went Vegan for 1.5 years. Never felt worse in my life. Constant head aches and low energy. I made sure to eat tons of fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, healthy wheat breads, ect. Everything organic and whole. Recently, I started eating meat again. Feel SO MUCH BETTER. Still, I eat TONS of fruits and veggies daily, but now also eat good, high quality, organic meats, and I feel really good. Not too sure if there was something I was missing, or all bodies are different and some do better with meat and some do better without.

  • damn she is really misguided with the unripe banana, terrible advice, recipe for digestive problems. do NOT eat starchy bananas, i should know i’ve eaten more bananas than probably any female over the past 13 years. and ripe bananas increase healthy bifidobacterial bacterial levels.

  • This episode has a transcript and show notes! View them at foundmyfitness.com/episodes/the-sonnenburgs

    Here are just a couple of the great quotes from this amazing interview:
    “We’re not just this collection of human cells. We’re in fact more like a tube of human cells that houses this incredibly complex and dynamic ecosystem of microbes, and what we’re finding is that these microbes are wired into pretty much all aspects of our biology.“

    “Yeah, so the average American is eating around 10 to 15 grams of dietary fiber per day. The U.S. government recommends that we eat more along the lines of 30 to 35. So just by that measure, we’re pretty fiber-deprived. If you look at these traditional populations that we study in our lab, these hunter-gatherers that lived in Tanzania, they’re eating on the order of 100 to 150 grams of dietary fiber per day.”

    “And so as we don’t consume enough dietary fiber, these microbes become closer to our mucus lining. They’re eating that food because that’s all they have to eat, and they’re inching ever closer to our own epithelial cells. And that creates a situation in which the human aspect of our GI tract and the microbial aspect, that fence that keeps them separated starts thinning and setting up a scenario where our immune system now can start overreacting to these microbes encroaching and these microbes potentially get a little more aggressive because they’re lacking in the food that they require.”

    Hope you enjoy the episode! Make sure to check out the Sonnenburg’s book at http://amzn.to/2zKrRhg.

  • I’ve been vegan for 5 years and there’s no way I’ll go back to eating animal products so that’s not my issue. Obesity and IBS/gastrointestinal issues seem to run in my family and I am definitely a sufferer. Admittedly, my eating habits and activity levels, lately, are terrible due to long term depression. I have been on diet and exercise regimes in the past that I thought would help me lose weight and improve my gut function. The reason I don’t keep going with these healthy habits is that after months of doing them, I see no weight loss results, no change in my gut disregulation and still end up feeling tired and miserable, dreading each round of exercise and looking forward to nothing. I feel addicted..both to salty/oily junk food and to inactivity. I’m desperate to feel better and look better but have so little motivation as to feel crippled by it. I need help but I don’t know where to look.

  • Are there probiotics that contribute to increased TMAO levels? For example I use the PB8 probiotic supplement which has a combination of good bacteria for both vegetable and meat consumption since my family do occasionally eat meat.

    Are there probiotic strains that increase TMAO?

  • Also even gut bacteria associated with all mental illnesses including Schizophrenia. These studies in my opion are one the most important studies. Its weird how for example someone going to the doctor to tell him/her about digestion problems, and they a few small tests (if any) and give some pills and tell you you have IBS. IBS being a title given to a large portion of digestive problems without even knowing what it actually entails. Anyway.. too much to say about that. 

    ‘During the normal birth process, our GI tracts are populated with “good” bacteria (by moving down the mother’s vaginal canal). This, our diets, stress levels, and other factors subsequently affect our gut bacteria and our overall health, as well as our brain development.

    Gut bacteria help regulate proteins and other substances that influence the brain’s development. One substance, “brain-derived neurotrophic factor” or BDNF, impacts the brain’s ability to develop new neurons and remain adaptable (referred to as neuroplasticity).

    Our gut environment also appears to affect receptors in our brains. Receptors may be thought of as the equivalent of a keyhole on the surface of a neuron. Brain chemicals are like the “keys” that are designed to fit in a specific type of receptor. Once such type of receptor, the NMDA, is a type of glutamate receptor involved in, among other things, plasticity (or adaptability) of neurons related to memory and other functions. An unbalanced microbiome (gut bacteria, or flora) can lead to under-functioning NMDA receptors and variations in BDNF that may contribute to the production of schizophrenia symptoms.’

  • Is a study what you what it to be?
    From the study… the high correlation between urine and plasma levels of TMAO argues for effective urinary clearance of TMAO.” In other words, even if eating food does increase total TMAO levels, most people are able to quickly and efficiently clear that TMAO from their blood by excreting it in the urine. And also of interest….Previous work by Dr. Hazen’s group has shown that people with higher levels of Prevotella bacteria in their gut produce higher levels of TMAO. (Interestingly enough, other research has shown that consumption of whole grains—not animal products—is associated with higher levels of Prevotella bacteria.) So make of it what you will.

  • Dr Berg who has eaten 4 eggs a day for 35 years has a heart problem?
    https://chriskresser.com/choline-and-tmao-eggs-still-dont-cause-heart-disease/

  • The car analogy didn’t make sense to me. Comparing things like heart disease and cancer to an accident just doesn’t fit. While putting the wrong fuel in your car won’t cause an accident it can damage the engine, which is much like putting the wrong fuel in your body and damaging your heart.

  • Its OK to eat eggs again no association with CV events.
    In conclusion, in the present study we examined the association between egg and cholesterol intakes and the risk of CAD and carotid IMT in a population with an exceptionally high prevalence of the ApoE ɛ4 allele. We did not find any indications of the relation of moderate egg consumption (up to 1 egg/d) or moderate-to-high dietary cholesterol intake with increased CVD risk, even in these highly susceptible individuals. Hence, although our results are based on a rather small population, the findings suggest that removal of the recommendation to limit dietary cholesterol intake (including egg consumption) does not involve a marked risk for population health.

  • With Due Respect What you have to say to this:
    “L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring substance required in mammalian energy metabolism that functions by facilitating long-chain fatty acid entry into cellular mitochondria, thereby delivering substrate for oxidation and subsequent energy production”
    Why L carnitine is Culprit here??? Your Video is Corelating Carnitine to TAMO but Carnitine is Natuallry OCuuring in Body Anyways and hence TAMO aswell if that your point who so ever eats BEANS they are high in Carnitine. SO IF YOU TELL us to AVOID then Clearly People will Rupture there CELL Mitchochondia Function resulting in FATIGUE and LOW energy.. WHAT ARE YOU UPTO??

  • Fermented foods changed my life. Try the Yogi Tea bags: Green Tea Kombucha.

    Feel an abcsess coming on? Drink that baby down!!! Let it splash around��‼️

  • Dr. Patrick is absolutely brilliant! I have a PhD in Biology and wish I had taken classes from her…thank goodness she posts these wonderful interviews with other brilliant researchers.

  • Dr berg would really disagree with her! And so would every doctor and nutritionist who advocate for ketogenic diets!
    Thats the problem today with you tube. Everyone is saying different things..
    Fact is we still really dont know

  • In June I had dental work done and the endo gave me a powerful post-op antibiotic. I’ve never reacted so badly to this particular kind. My colon was producing so much mucus and gas that I couldn’t pass gas anymore. It even led to bleeding. I went to my doctor and all blood tests show absolutely nothing. I’m slowly recovering but it’s two steps forward one step back.

  • I increased my fiber intake 11-12 years ago by increasing vegetables, fruits, and grains in my diet. I believe as a result, I was hospitalized with severe abdominal pain which was diagnosed as Crohn’s. After trying a variety of eating regimens unsuccessfully, I started eating keto, and intermittent fasting. Although, I haven’t been doing this for an extended amount of time, I do feel better physically and mentally. I will mention I do eat some greens, and sauerkraut in my diet. This is my experience. I really enjoy all of videos.

  • Some plants also have choline, but there is something to them that inhibits the conversion of TMA into TMAO. Conclusion? If you eat eggs, have them with a bunch of broccoli.

  • I am a fan of yours Dr Greger @ nitritionfacts.org but it does seem like there bias. You clearly don’t approve of any supplements other than vit D and B12. And granted there are many awful supplements… but I believe in educating people on what vitamers and chelated minerals are the good guys because it could be the difference between them needing pharmaceuticals or avoiding them. I think the last bit about L-carnitine, they were trying to say that there beneficial functions of this amino acid (building block of protein) like the transportation of fat into mitochondria to boost energy production and reduce fat mass. And instead of highlighting it’s benefit and use you labelled it purely as a health risk. I’m a little disappointed in this. Also the video is not about the title “how to develop a healthy gut”. Dr Greger I love you but please educate, don’t just give one side of the story. Much love. From, a fellow nutritionist who you have inspired at times ����
