Introduction Of Do You Know How Meat Affect Your Gut Top Reasons And Tips

Do You Know How Meat Affect Your Gut Top Reasons And Tips. Meat doesn’t ferment like fiber doesn’t ferment like carbohydrates do it doesn’t ferment like other foods so is meat whacking out your gut biome well let’s take a look I want to look at this in the most unbiased way possible and the first thing I want to lead off with are two studies that look at red meat consumption but in different regions of the world and how they potentially have a different effect first study published in American journal clinical nutrition took a look at Asians, they found that Asians.

A Correlation Between Red Meat Consumption

That eat meat there was a correlation between red meat consumption and less cardiovascular disease or mortality that’s kind of wild because when you look at current atherosclerosis reports and you look at that in Americans you find that more processed red meat ended up resulting in increased mortality from cardiovascular disease as well as diabetes what’s kind of interesting I guess at first glance I wanted to set the tone we have to look at.

Some context here like you look at various cultures like the Asian culture might eat red meat sparingly and they’re going to consume it in a little bit more of a wholesome fashion possibly like with a normal meal whereas when Americans are typically eating red meat I mean generally speaking not people that are maybe conscious about it and doing a clean keto or something like that but people that are con you know not being conscious about it they’re gonna eat a burger with fries and a shake and things like that right well of course.

That’s going to contribute to a lot of inflammatory responses within the body but I’m going to get off my high horse in terms of overall metabolic holistic look and get down to the nitty gritty of the microbiome for a second the first thing is something called any u5gc that I want to look at we’ll call it new 5gc this new 5gc is something that a lot of I’m just going to call it the radical plant-based community because I’m not opposed to plant-based but some of the community gets pretty aggressive sometimes new 5gc is something.

We Consume It In Mammals The Body

That is used as ammunition saying that meat is bad all around well if we understand it we can kind of look at both sides so new 5gc is produced by mammals that we generally eat like pork and like cows things like that well humans used to produce new 5gc up until like 2-3 million years ago when they found that well somehow through some kind of mutation we stopped producing new 5gc so what ends up happening is because new 5gc is now considered foreign to humans because we don’t produce it anymore.

There’s a little bit of a weird response when we consume it in mammals the body does react a little strange to it it does say hey wait a minute what is this and it treats it as such especially in like petri dish studies when you look at the actual reaction we don’t know how to deal with it but our gut does know how to deal with it and that’s what we have to look at but just because we don’t deal with it like chemically doesn’t mean that our microbiome can’t deal with it here’s what’s interesting.

There’s something called the hormetic curve and we need some degree of a little bit of stress now and then for the body to adapt right it’s no different than you popping in an ice bath to get an adaptation or going in the sauna to get an adaptation to heat or heck even a tiny bit of alcohol to get an adaptation it’s perfectly normal now I’m not saying we bombard our body with new 5gc but when you look at the evidence in the microbiome it’s pretty fascinating there’s a study.

Nature Microbiology Took A Look

That was published in nature microbiology took a look at mice for four weeks and fed them a diet very high in new 5gc what was interesting is that they had an increase in Bacteroides and also an increase in closer dialysis now these bacterias are associated with an abundance of enzymes that can cleave off the new 5gc what does that mean so nu5gc by itself isn’t an issue because it just comes in our body and gets excreted so let’s say you eat a steak and it has its low-quality steak with a bunch of new 5gc.

If it’s clean in your body your body can deal with it and process it but if it’s bound to different molecules because ph is different whatever that’s when it becomes a problem. After all, that’s when it can get absorbed and then our body does legitimately have to deal with it and it triggers a potential immune response it’s viable but when you look at like closer dialysis and you look at kind of the abundance of these bacterias that are associated with enzymes that can break and leave off the new 5gc so you excrete.

It never goes past our hermetically sealed contained biome like it’s perfectly fine there and they took a look at other things like cross-referencing enzymes like removing enzymes adding enzymes to see yes this was the case in this environment that was created by exposure to a little bit of the new 5gc allowed it to have the capability to deal with the new 5dc so if we’re not ever exposing ourselves and we don’t develop the ability to deal with it but one of the big things.

Healthy Microbiome To Deal

We have to look at is once again a healthy microbiome to deal with this so is it a which came first the chicken or the egg kind of thing like if you have a very unhealthy individual that’s just drinking milkshakes all day long and eating double quarter pounders all the time well their microbiome is going to be out of whack and unable to adapt because they’re not going to have that sort of hinge like they can’t move they can’t flex acute right I call it flexecution.

Where they can bend and mold and move and be able to grow in certain ways point is that that plays a big role diversity does matter that’s why like getting good amounts of fiber in along with your meat is very important and I’ve got more to talk about here I’m just giving you some suggestions still really focusing mainly on doing the most with the least you don’t have to bombard yourself with the protein you can only absorb so much at one point in time try to add fiber and veggies along with it.

So you’re supporting the microbiome so it can make the decisions that it needs to make take a good probiotic if you’re not already the one that I recommend is one called seed and I put it down below in the description I’ve talked about them several times on this channel so highly recommend that one if that’s what you’re looking for if you’re looking to take a probiotic it’s not designed to replace consuming fiber or replace anything or diagnose cure treat anything it’s something if you want to support your microbiome.

Different Inflammatory Issues

It’s a good way to support your gut health Thomas 15 saves you 15 if you want to give them a shot and now we have to talk about the big ugly elephant in the room to is talked about a lot as far as its correlation with all kinds of different inflammatory issues and cardiovascular disease what it is when you consume red meat you have something called l-carnitine l-carnitine gets converted into trimethylamine TMA tma further on down the line gets converted into.

Something called t-m-a-o t-m-a-o can cause some issues it can stimulate an inflammatory response we don’t want that but what’s interesting is tma production producing tma in the first place when we consume meat is associated with gut dysbiosis meaning that if your gut’s out of whack you’re going to probably make more tma it’s also associated with something called gamma proteobacteria and what’s interesting about gamma proteobacteria is that is associated with low fiber intake in other situations so.

Someone doesn’t need a lot of fiber they have a high amount of gamma proteobacteria makes it so that you have more tma derived from meat that you eat I’m starting to see another correlation here right maybe the issue is the gut biome in the first place of relatively unhealthy people that are eating a lot of meat but when you look at healthy people that eat a decent amount of meat.

Meat Causing The Problem

There’s not as much of an issue so which came first is it the meat causing the problem or is it really setting the pace with our lifestyle and maybe just overdoing everything then we get into fermentation which is fascinating because we start talking about ph now this is kind of complex but we’re going to simplify it when you consume meat there is a level of fermentation.

That occurs and sometimes if meat sits in your gut long enough it ferments into hydrogen sulfide which is not good we don’t want that in our body either there’s no denying that I’m not denying what a lot of the plant-based crowd will say like that’s not good but there are ways that we deal with it you see there are these things called proteases and these proteases break down the protein to a certain degree sometimes we want the protein broken down just enough so.

We can deaminate it and use it for muscle but we also don’t want it broken down in certain ways that are going to release hydrogen sulfide well that comes down to a ph thing what’s interesting is that a wider variety of gut bacteria is going to create more short chain fatty acids which guess what drop the ph of your gut they drop the ph of your colon they make it so that guess what those proteases make it so you don’t break it down the same you don’t break down that l-carnitine into the tma so that.

Magnesium Issue

It can convert into tmao you see it’s a big picture here that we have to look at and one last final thought and then I’ll let you go the Hemi iron piece there’s a lot of evidence out there that shows that if you consume too much iron coming in from like red meat that it can affect and it can chelate in your gut there is some truth to that like excess iron consumption but then why are we still dealing with such an anemic issue right an issue with people being anemic well a lot of times it comes down to a balance of needing magnesium to allow.

This whole process occurs usually it’s not a deficiency in iron that people are seeing but you actually are getting enough iron it’s usually a magnesium issue so does iron chelate in the gut well it can but that’s not really what we’re after here we’re not talking about that per se there’s a balance once again if you’re consuming nothing but red meat and you’re not getting a balance with these other minerals then yes you could run into an issue so fiber first then focus on the meat and I think you’ll notice that wait a minute now.

I have the biome to actually do something with the meat instead unless you are on like a specific carnivore style protocol where that is exactly what you are doing for an anti-inflammatory purpose it would be foolish to not add fiber and support your gut microbiome so you can get the most out of the meat.
