Eating Fibrous Vegetables like Broccoli can resolve majority of gut problems

Regular consumption of fibrous vegetables can be an effective long-term solution for preventing any gut problems. A new study has recommended regular consumption of broccoli, brussels sprouts and cabbage for better gut health. Detailed study results have been published in the journal of Functional Foods. Foods with high fiber content have been recommended by health experts for healthy digestive system and they are important for long term health.

A healthy Digestive system can keep many diseases at bay. The study team suggests that leaky gut and inflammation can be easily dealt with regular consumption of high fiber vegetables. The study team offered high-fiber diet to lab mice. The team found that mice with high-fiber diet were better able to tolerate digestive issues similar to symptoms of leaky gut and colitis.

However, the daily recommendation from the study team is three and a half cups of broccoli or other high-fiber vegetables per day. This amount could be difficult for many people. It could be easier to consume these vegetables if they are added to diet as salads with appetizing salad dressing. Regular consumption of high-fiber green vegetables can also reduce appetite and help in keeping weight under control. Before shifting to high-fiber diet, people should consult a medical professional.

Gary Perdew, Professor at the Pennsylvania State University said, “There are a lot of reasons we want to explore helping with gastrointestinal health and one reason is if you have problems, like a leaky gut, and start to suffer inflammation, that may then lead to other conditions, like arthritis and heart disease”

Professor Perdew added, “Keeping your gut healthy and making sure you have good barrier functions so you’re not getting this leaky effect would be really big.”
