Nutritionist Daria Serova listed foods to improve intestinal microflora.
Of great value for the digestive tract are foods rich in fiber and probiotics. In the case of proper nutrition, the bacteria living inside us remain satisfied, which directly affects the state of health.
“Studies have shown that changes in the gut microbiota can lead to changes in behavior, mood and cognitive function,” Serova said.

This means that the first step is to eat a diet rich in fiber. You can improve digestion with the help of fresh vegetables, fruits, fiber, which is found in whole grain cereals, legumes. Plus, you can add chia seeds to your favorite cottage cheese or yogurt, choose lentils for lunch, which are rich not only in fiber, but also in protein.
