Villas of Manalapan, N.J., Independent- and Assisted-Living Community Offers 6 Ways to Improve Your Body’s Ecosystem of Bacteria

Luxurious healthy-living community a short drive from Staten Island, N.Y., lists dietary ways to make a beneficial shift of your ‘microbiome’

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. / MANALAPAN, N.J. Your microbiome is the ecosystem of bacteria living in and on your body; this ecosystem is comprised of trillions of beneficial, neutral, and harmful bacteria. The proportion of bacteria types has a tremendous influence on you, and wellness professionals at the Villas of Manalapan, N.J., are highlighting the significance of your microbiome upon your health.

Experts in the health-and-wellness arena are aware that bacterial proportion is impacted by many factors. Current research is showing how connected your microbiome is to almost every part of your health and well-being, affecting digestion; brain health; immune health; blood-sugar balance; hormonal health; energy; mood, and just about everything in between. 

Health professionals at the Villas of Manalapan suggest you begin to shift your microbiome in a positive way. Some dietary ways to make this shift include reducing sugar, processed food, and inflammatory grains – and increasing prebiotics(green banana, artichoke, garlic, onions, inulin) and probiotics (fermented pickles, kimchi, raw sauerkraut, yogurt). You can also increase your fiber intake, especially from vegetables. 

To assist you in improving your microbiome, the Villas of Manalapan offers the following six tips:

  • Reduce microbiome disrupters, such as artificial sweeteners, alcohol, unnecessary antibiotics and antacids.
  • Invite more friendly bacteria in by getting in touch with nature, gardening, earthing with your bare feet, touching a tree, a leaf, the sand.
  • Exercise and sweat.
  • Get a restorative night of sleep.
  • Stay well-hydrated.
  • Begin a daily meditation practice. Studies have shown meditation promotes positive gut health.
