How to live low G.I. in a high G.I. world (Glycemic) Is microbiome the key?

Research results from the Nutritional IQ Survey explains that there is an increasing high nutritional literacy among a great number of the population today. Nevertheless, while eight out of ten respondents in the survey are aware of the energy sustenance beneficial results of eating low GI foods, only about half are aware that many of these foods reduce the glucose spikes, which is an interesting knowledge gap. This is because the glycemic index original use is to aid in the treatment of diabetics and helping them to manage their levels of blood glucose levels. As such, not every low-GI meal means that one will have a guarantee of increased nutritional value. For instance, chocolate is one of the foods with a low GI, yet it is hardly a good choice for a nutritionally healthy choice. A better solution is for people to look for foods, which are multi skill across our nutritional spectrum. People should have a high nutritional IQ to accompany their shopping of low GI foods if they are to have a healthier body and soul. Perhaps this is where the microbiome becomes the key.

This, he continues, is in part the fact that they change the habitat of the microorganisms residing in the gut. This results in a shift in the microbial populations living there in a way that the metabolic health is affected. Microbiome is designed to cause a shift in GI bacteria and other micro organisms (microbiota) as well as their environment in a specific way, which achieves an improved health outcome.
