Polyphenols and gut bacteria

Polyphenols and gut bacteria

Polyphenols including purple, dark red and blue plants like beetroot, red grapes and blueberries play an important role in maintaining a healthy brain.

When consumed daily they can alter the balance between good gut bacteria and removing harmful bacteria reducing inflammation.

Daily recommendations

A beetroot, berry, tomato and coconut water smoothie is a great way to start the day. If time isn’t on your side you can always throw some spinach, beetroot and feta cheese in a bowl and get your daily intake as a salad.

Secret recipe: Beetroot, goat cheese and walnut oven bake

Simply boil 1kg of fresh beetroot for 45mins. Then put in cold water to peel using your fingers - the skin will fall off. Slice them up and put them in a casserole dish. Thinly slice a red onion and add it with 300gm of goat cheese, some rosemary, thyme, salt, walnuts and cream. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for roughly 25mins.
