How the Fodmap Diet Can Fix Your Digestive Problems

In a recent video, we talked about gut microbiota, did you watch it?

We saw that fasting is a healthy practice to regenerate gut bacteria and talked about dysbiosis, do you know what that is?

Gut dysbiosis is an imbalance in our microbiota. Gut microbiota, the bacteria that live in our intestines, are responsible for our health.

When this concentration is put at risk, there may be changes, qualitative and quantitative, that harm our health and metabolic activities.

This situation is called dysbiosis and can lead to inflammation and lesions in the mucosa tissue, causing even more health problems, like obesity, diabetes, cancer, dementia, and dermatitis.

The symptoms of irritable bowel vary from person to person, so you have to pay attention and try to identify and cut any foods that cause discomfort.

In today's video, we will talk about the FODMAP diet, have you ever heard about it?

A low-FODMAP diet consists in temporarily restricting foods high in FODMAP to control intestinal symptoms while identifying the “food triggers.”

What foods are rich in FODMAP?

There are many FODMAP-rich foods, for example:

Fruits and monosaccharide foods (rich in fructose)
Milk and by-products (disaccharides)
Vegetables and legumes
Cereal and pasta

These foods are poorly absorbed by the small intestine, are highly fermented by the gut flora bacteria, and are osmotically active molecules.

They cause symptoms, such as poor digestion, excessive flatulence and diarrhea or constipation, abdominal inflammation, and cramps.

In the FODMAP diet, you remove all these foods paying attention to identify improvements in the symptoms of intestinal discomfort.
