Metabolism and Microbiome: Inseparable Synergy

Dr. Adiari Tineo, General Practitioner, NAL Founder, doTERRA Diamond

Many of us have resolutions to improve our overall health and wellness. We often try to improve our sleep, get into a workout routine, or to simply drink more water. What if we focused on our microbiome? In a recent conference, Dr. Adiari Tineo shared more about the importance of our microbiome and the doTERRA products she recommends using.

The first question that often comes up is “What is a microbiome?” Our bodies contain trillions of microorganisms, especially in our digestive system, and this community of bacteria, viruses, and fungi is called our microbiome. A healthy microbiome protects us from harmful threats and performs important jobs like helping us digest our food. When our microbiome is disrupted, many aspects of our health and life can be disrupted too.

Adiari also reminds us that our microbiome works closely with our metabolism - the process our bodies use to turn food into energy. An unbalanced microbiome disrupts proper metabolic function. Investing in the two systems is crucial to support a healthy body.

The easiest way to diversify our microbiome is to add probiotics and prebiotics. Products like doTERRA’s new PB Assist+® ProBiome Gut Complex and doTERRA PB Restore ProBiome Complex help to deliver microbes and support your body’s microbiome diversity and health. * Combining probiotics with prebiotics gives our microbiome extra nutrients to thrive. *

Wondering what else you can do to support a happy microbiome? Below are some tips shared by Adiari to help get you on the right track:

  1. Eat a diverse range of plant foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. These provide prebiotic fiber that feeds the good bacteria in your gut microbiome.
  2. Limit processed foods, artificial sweeteners, and saturated fats, which can disturb the balance of microbes. Opt for high fiber, minimally processed options.
  3. Take daily probiotic and prebiotic supplements, especially ones with multiple strains, to replenish your microbiome with beneficial bacteria.
  4. Reduce stress through practices like meditation, yoga, deep breathing, etc. Significant stress negatively impacts gut microbiome diversity.
  5. Stay hydrated with water throughout the day. Dehydration can alter the composition of your microbiome. Aim for half your body weight in ounces.

Taking care of your body can start with simple and easy steps. Working supplements like PB Assist+, doTERRA PB Restore, and MetaPWR® into your routine can help optimize both our microbiome and metabolism together. * Caring for our internal microscopic ecosystem along with our metabolic processes leads to better health from head to toe.
