Antibiotic resistance can be decreased by fibrous diets.

According to recent studies, fiber-rich diets alter the gastrointestinal tract in a way that lessens the likelihood that antibiotics may lose their effectiveness.
Adults were encouraged to consume 8 to 10 grammes of dissolved fibre daily, which would be very helpful for them, according to a study that was published in the journal Biobio. These fibres can modify the microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract and stop the body from developing an antibiotic resistance. Otherwise, it’s possible that sometimes even tertiary antibiotics are ineffective. Today, antibiotic resistance is a significant problem in the medical community.

Numerous patients worldwide suffer from illnesses that cannot be treated with standard drugs like tetracycline and aminoglycosides. This is because some viruses and bacteria may skillfully change themselves, rendering these medications useless.

We are aware that it originated in the human intestines and stomach, where a variety of microorganisms are genetically resistant to antibiotics.

Foods high in fibre can be quite beneficial in this aspect. Low-meat, high-fiber diets were shown to decrease the antibacterial resistance gene (ARG) in the gastrointestinal system, according to research by Daniel Lemme and colleagues at the ARS Center in Davis, California. The amount of these aerobic

microorganisms in the stomach then increases as the ARG rate decreases. It is also a nice illustration of normal bowel motions in the stomach and intestines.
For dual health, experts advise consuming pulses, barley, beans, almonds, and whole grains.

However, berries, broccoli, and carrots are other foods that include fibre.
There hasn’t been much research on 290 individuals in this area. All subjects were split into two groups, fed fiber- and non-fiber-containing meals, and had the composition of their gut microbiota analysed.
