WHAT TO EAT FOR OPTIMAL GUT HELATH: FOODS FOR GUT HEALTH | Dr. Nick Z.


In this video, I’ll uncover the best foods
for gut health. Hi, ladies and gentlemen, I’m Dr. Zyrowski
and welcome back to the channel. If you’re new to the channel, it is a pleasure
to have you here. Be sure to subscribe and hit that bell notification
and join our notification community so I can help you excel your health and your life. in this video, we’re talking about the foods
for gut health. Most people are actually doing the exact opposite
of this, constantly eating foods that just break down their gut health, their gut lining,
tearing down their level of probiotics in their gut, their digestive enzymes, so on
and so forth, driving a lot of inflammation. This is really bad because, first of all,
our gut health is absolutely critical for whole body heath. Our hormone health is contingent on it, our
brain health, our thyroid health. So much of our immune system is contingent
on really good gut health. And when we look at gut problems and gut conditions
in general, gastrointestinal cancer is supposed to be one of the top killers of millennials
in the future. So, if we really want to make sure that we’re
improving whole body health, we have to make sure that our gut health is constantly improving
on a daily basis and we’re doing the proper things to nurture that. The first food on our list is going to be
bone broth and collagen. When we look at the bone broth, it’s very
powerful because it actually could help soothe the gut lining, it’s going to help decrease
some of inflammation, but most importantly, it’s going to have the proper building blocks
in it in order to actually repair the gut lining. So, that’s why using bone broth is very powerful
because it actually contains collagen. It actually contains a lot of the minerals
necessary for proper gut health. A couple of things here. When we look at bone broth, you can make it
yourself in the comfort of your own home. As a matter of fact, I did a video on that
and I’ll put that in the description below. The other thing that you can use is collagen
by actually just buying collagen. You can get collagen like collagen peptides. You can put that in your coffee, it’s tasteless,
it doesn’t really change the consistency at all. So, collagen is great in many ways as well. So, bone broth and collagen are very powerful. The next is apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is great for a couple
of reasons. One, it’s going to really help balance the
pH of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract and the reason that it’s important for that
is because when that pH becomes imbalanced, what happens is that it opens the door for
a lot of bacteria to get into the small intestines. And so, what we want to do is use apple cider
vinegar to not only work as a mild anti-bacterial but also keep the pH of the stomach at its
proper level so that we don’t have a lot of bacteria that is starting to overgrow and
a lot of other issues that can come out of improper pH balance. Next on our list here is ghee. Ghee is powerful because it contains a lot
of fat-soluble vitamins and the fat-soluble vitamins are typically the same vitamins that
are deficient in those who have gut problems because there becomes a malabsorption issue. So, ghee is great for that and it’s a very
healthy fat which is good for the gut lining. The next here is coconut oil. Coconut oil is great because it acts as a
very gently anti-fungal, anti-bacterial. It’ll help get some of that yeast out of your
system and coconut oil, once again, is a healthy fat that is important for overall rebuilding
of that gut lining so that you can actually get that healed up. Next on our list is aloe vera juice. I put aloe vera juice because you can buy
aloe vera as a juice, you can buy it as a supplement, you can actually go and buy the
big aloe vera leaves like I used to do. Cut them up and put them in a smoothie and
it will likely ruin your whole smoothie because I don’t find the taste of it to be very good. So, aloe vera in general, you can really use
in a lot of great ways. I like to stick to aloe vera capsules or using
a gut healing powder that has aloe vera in it personally because I don’t like the taste
of it. When we look at aloe vera, it’s very, very
powerful for decreasing inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and also working to
heal leaky gut. So, using aloe vera is very powerful and highly
recommended. Once again, there are a lot of different variables
as to how you can use it. Just in general, using it is going to be very
powerful. Next on our list is going to be fermented
foods. Fermented foods are very important because
it’s important to make sure that we get those proper probiotics into our gut. One of the both benefit and curses of modern
food today is that it’s very clean. So, the huge benefit is that it’s clean and
we’re not getting all these food-borne illnesses that people use to catch all the time and
die from. The bad part is that it’s so clean that all
the good microbes are being cleaned off of our different foods and fruits and vegetables
that we’re eating. So, what we can do is very easily make some
fermented vegetables in the comfort of our home or we can actually go and buy them. So, kombucha which is a fermented tea is very
good. Sauerkraut which is fermented cabbage. Yoghurt, fermented dairy. Kimchi, pickles or kefir. When we look at a lot of gut conditions or
people who are suffering from gut conditions, typically the dairy, like the kefir and the
yoghurt may not sit well with them. However, in general, for a healthy person
it’s great. The other thing that I want to mention here
too, when we look at sauerkraut and kimchi and pickles, much of the stuff that you’re
going to find in the store is actually just vinegar based. What that means is that it’s not fermented,
it’s actually just put in vinegar which gives it that fermented-like taste and feeling. So, if we want to make sure that we’re getting
the benefits, we have to make sure that we are actually buying the real deal fermented
stuff. As a matter of fact, what I’ll do is throw
a little bonus in here. In the description of this video, I will put
an e-book that we have available that actually goes over the benefits of fermented food but
also how to make all these different fermented foods right in the comfort of your home because
they’re very inexpensive to make. However, they’re a little bit more pricey
to buy. So, if you were to look at vinegar-based sauerkraut
versus fermented sauerkraut, huge price difference. Anyway, fermented foods are powerful because
you’ve got to get those good bugs, those microbes into intestines because they’re very important. They play a huge role in overall body health
but intestinal health as well. The next here is ginger. Ginger is very anti-inflammatory. It also is very good for soothing and healing
the gastrointestinal tract. And then the last here is pumpkin seeds or
pumpkin seed oil. What we look at here when we see pumpkin seeds
or pumpkin seed oil is the fact that it has a very high zinc content. Zinc is very powerful for healing the gut
and so we want to make sure that we get those high levels of zinc and you’re going to get
the most out of pumpkin seed oil. When we look to really going in eating foods
that are going to really help our gut lining, really help with the process of reversing
damage within the gut, these are some really powerful alternatives to turn to. Like I said, it’s about having the whole package. It’s not just about supplements. It’s not just about food. It’s really about doing all these things together
to create a lifestyle and a good environment for your gut health to thrive. Here’s the deal. It’s important to incorporate these and not
necessarily all of them at once and not necessarily all of them every single day. It’s really just important to add a couple
in a week, a couple in every single day. Maybe one a day would be a really great way
to start. If you incorporate these foods in, over time,
you’re going to find that your gut health becomes better and better. And the big thing is you want to actually
protect yourself from actually getting all these different conditions that I talk about
– small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, leaky gut, Crohn’s, ulcers, all these different
problems. So, this is going to really help you with
that. Be sure to go into the description below and

  1. Vitamin C, D3 and the B complex are good too?
    I knew of all of these (save for the pumpkin seed oil) due to my research kicked off in late June 2018….PS: a lot of trouble making a coherent list, but now I got it tho

  2. I remember my grandmother cooking bones all day but I didn’t know all the good thing about them at that time .. thank you Dr Nick . I think every thing my ancestors use to Ate was healthy. It’s nice to watch your videos

  3. I am allergic to yeast. Just a few sips of Kombucha exacerbated my eczema. I am taking 1 tablespoon of ACV twice a day in green tea and raw honey. Are there other foods I can use to heal my gut? I was told the eczema is caused by leaky gut.

  4. Thank you so very much, for addressing such an important subject in such a concise and clear manner, just for your consideration, I wanted to take your video to the members of my church because it sounds almost like the gospel and there is Common Ground and forgive the run-on sentence, I do believe that this is true health. Thanks again for blessing Society and oh by the way, my personal belief is that we are either blessing or cursing Society.

  5. Thanks again Dr.Nick for another informative video. Can you recommend a brand of Ghee? There are so many out there. Thank you!

  6. Another great video Doctor NIck. Very timely for me as I am about to go for surgery and unfortunately a treatment of antibiotics which I'd prefer to not have but seems a necessary evil consider they are drilling into bones. I wonder if there is another video topic for you, what to do after a treatment of antibiotics. This video covers some of it but I wonder if there are any other specific foods, supplements, fasting, exercise or anything we should do after such a treatment

  7. I got acid reflex n bloating n not firm stools. On keto but not losing weight. Tried ACV but had burning. Everyone is talking abt Betaine Hydrochloride with pepsin? I take high blood pressure meds. Should i try Betaine HCL n bile salts? Thanks

  8. I have a question about gluten and stuff. Ok so I plan on having a cheat meal at a place called “Sweet by holly” there known for their cupcakes but they also have vegan and gluten free options. I don’t have any problems with gluten but should I still go with the gluten free cupcake option instead of the regular ones?

  9. Is it possible that after incorporating these diet changes that my recently discovered food intollerances will disappear? If so, what would the time frame look like?

  10. Dr. Zyrowki
    Can you do a video on Chemotherapy weight gain. What causes it. I was diagnosed with breast cancer found under my armpit and I gained 20 lbs from the steroids…is intermittent fasting good?

    Btw…your information is helping me with getting back on track after chemo.

  11. Everybody pretty much says the same thing apple cider vinegar fermented foods your sibo diet meal plan I can't eat half that stuff I'm basically on meat, cocoa oil, c8, & romaine lettuce hearts that's it. I've got some type of systemic overgrowth. Anything with vinegar, alcohol, starch or sugar messes me up big time including in my brain, dizzy instantly, sleep disrupt, racing mind, wrist will hurt, ankles pop, & and it all subsides in a day if I eat right.
