FREE Cure Strengthens Your Gut (Incredible!)
Microbiome is the latest buzzword in the medical community—and for a good reason.
This community of trillions of bacteria that live in your gut plays a role in the health of your entire body.
People with more good (and less bad) bacteria—and with more diversity in those bacteria—tend to live longer and have less chronic disease.
Food plays a major role in your gut health, but there’s another factor that dramatically impacts your gut diversity…
And it has nothing to do with what you’re eating.
So what’s the big deal about gut bacteria?
The short answer: They’re responsible for a strong, healthy immune system.
More than 70 percent of your immune system lies in the gut. Over 38 trillion bacteria live there, and they do a whole lot more than help break down food.
These bacteria essentially arm your immune systems for battle, helping protect you from everything from the common cold to cancer.
That explains why a LACK of gut diversity is liked to conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, psoriasis, allergies, type 2 diabetes obesity, and hardening of the arteries.
Eating a variety of whole foods—especially fruit and vegetables that are in season—helps contribute to a healthy, diverse microbiome.
But according to a recent study published in Frontiers in Microbiology, there’s another novel way to boost your gut diversity that has nothing to do with food.
All you have to do is step outside and soak up the sunshine.
That’s right, according to this study, UVB rays can do wonders for your gut health.
Researchers studied 21 women who were given three 60-second full-body UVB exposure sessions over one week.
Half of the women had taken vitamin D supplements for the previous three months, while the other half did not.
In the women who had not been taking vitamin supplements, the exposure to UVB light led to…
- A 10 percent increase in vitamin D levels
- Increases in alpha and beta gut microbiome diversity
The women who took vitamin D supplements had less gut diversity prior to the UVB exposure. But after exposure to UVB rays, there was basically NO difference in the gut diversity between the two groups.
This was an important study because it was the first one ever to show that there’s a connection between the skin being exposed to the sun’s UVB rays and the gut microbiome.
This study also indicates that it’s the sun’s ability to boost vitamin D in the body that is responsible for this connection.
There are two key takeaways from this study.
The first is that this shows yet another reason that the sun is vital for health and vitality.
The second is that you don’t need to take a vitamin D supplement to get vitamin D’s benefits for your body.
All you have to do is step outside!
