February is an American Health Month!
We tend to talk about heart health in functional and preventative medicine during this time of the year. And if you are familiar with my work, I often find links from poor gut health to many other conditions.
And even heart health ties with gut health in many ways. Inflammation is the root cause of the problems with both gut and heart health. Gut microbiome is related to heart health through the function of one of the gut metabolites, called trimethylamine (TMA), that forms when gut microbiome is fed on choline, a nutrient found in fish, poultry, eggs and red meat. TMA is converted to TMAO in the liver, a substance connected to artery- clogging plaque (atherosclerosis).
A study from the Journal of the American Heart Association published a study in 2017 found the connection between blood levels of TMAO and heart attacks and strokes. That’s one serious Gut – Heart connection people. And there are more and more studies that were recently highlighted.
Choose healthy for your gut and therefore for your heart. Choose lots of healthy fats like olive oil and avocado, choose lots of plant based proteins like legumes, beans, seeds and nuts and choose foods lots on anti-oxidants like blueberries.
