The Importance of Gut Flora in Perinatal Nutrition
Optimal gut flora balance is an important part of perinatal nutrition. Our gut microbiome plays a critical role in the prevention of many illnesses and chronic disease. Gut flora can be impacted from genetic and environmental factors including poor diets, antibiotics, cesarean sections, formula feeding, and stress. It is important to optimize gut flora as part of perinatal nutrition for the optimal health of the newborn. Optimal gut flora balance is necessary for balanced immune function, digestive health, preventing chronic metabolic disorders, and mental health. Promoting optimal gut flora in maternal nutrition can aid the health of the newborn baby.
