The microbes in our gut play a major role in regulating our weight and our overall health, a study has shown. Our pattern of drug use and poor diet has armed the bad bacteria with weapons to win over good bacteria. This imbalance affects our metabolism, immune system and even our mind. By eating foods high in probiotics and cutting microbe-feeding sugars, we find a way to mend this imbalance.
1. Dark Chocolate
By eating dark chocolate, you get help from a superhero and his sidekick. It’s because it has both probiotics and prebiotics. Prebiotics convert chocolate into anti-inflammatory agents and probiotics aid in digestion and strengthen bugs that kill bad bacteria. Eat dark chocolate with 70% cacao content or consume about 2 tablespoons cocoa powder or a square bar.
