Continuing from Part 1, 7/15/2021 test results received 7/27 showed I was putatively below average in four gut bacteria. The most relatively deficient (percentage-wise) were populations in genus Bifidobacterium:
Looking through Thryve’s recommended foods, eating all but one (green lentils) of twenty legumes increased genus Bifidobacterium. Here’s a sample:
I already had dried garbanzo and Adzuki beans in my pantry. One serving (35 grams, 1/4 cup) of each are soaking overnight.
Adzuki beans would be expected to improve genus Bifidobacterium populations through resistant starch 2. Garbanzo beans would be expected to improve genus Bifidobacterium populations primarily through resistant starch 3, while also improving relatively-deficient Akkermansia and Lactobacillus bacteria.
Resistant starch was curated in studies such as:
Resistant starch types and their effects were summarized in https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/agricultural-and-biological-sciences/resistant-starch.
