3 everyday things that this MD says can destroy your gut health

3. Lectins

Dr. Gundry explains in his book The Plant Paradox that many people who think they are gluten-intolerant actually have a problem with these plant proteins found in grains, legumes, and nightshade vegetables (like tomatoes, eggplant, white potatoes, and red peppers).

“The less time that a gut wall is being penetrated by food and by these particles called lectins, the healthier you are. Because that’s less time your body has to deal with bacteria,” he said. “Give your gut a rest.”

So you know about good bacteria—but do you know about good fungi? It can be a major part of a healthy microbiome (along with a gut-healthy eating plan, of course).
