Food Emulsifiers Linked to Obesity

Digestion and the immune response begin in the gut, and studies have shown that a healthy gut equals less inflammation throughout the body, which leads to better health and less obesity. This is one of the reasons that health experts have praised probiotics; they improve gut flora and keep the gut balanced. While it has been suspected that processed foods interfere with gut health, a new study in Nature confirms this by showing that the emulsifiers found in food may be contributing to micobiota disturbances, which cause an increased incidence of inflammatory bowel disease, obesity and metabolic syndrome. It is important to remember that what we eat may be just as important, if not more important, than how much we eat! The take home message is to stay away from processed foods as much as possible and eat a natural diet low in sugar. Eat natural!
