Is the Mediterranean diet the friendliest to your gut?
Is this the diet we should be striving towards to achieve maximum gut health?
A recent study from the University Medical Centre Groningen in the Netherlands has suggested the Mediterranean diet could be the best for gut health.
The Mediterranean diet mainly consists of foods that are high in nutrients, such as fish, legumes, vegetables, nuts, fruits, bread and red wine, all of which encourage good bacteria to develop in our guts, reducing inflammation.
Possibly the most important factor that Med-Diet approved foods offer is fibre. Foods such as legumes, grains and vegetables are packed full of fibre, and this is what helps our bodies to grow healthy bacteria.
All in all, not only is the Med-Diet clearly healthy, it is also extremely flavourful and delicious!
