5 Easy Ways To Improve Your Gut Health


Gut health is often overlooked. What many fail to realize is that the state of your gut health is crucial to how your brain, digestive system, immune system, and more, function. Symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, gas, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, and skin problems can all be indicators of an unhealthy gut. If you feel that you may be struggling with a gut health problem, here are 5 easy ways to improve your gut health.

 

Probiotics

 

Probiotic supplements can combat an unruly gut by introducing ‘good’ bacteria into your gut to help fight off ‘bad bacteria’. Probiotics can assist in digesting food and supporting your immune system. An alternative to probiotic supplements is introducing fermented foods into your diet. Foods such as yogurt, kefir, kimchi, and kombucha can all provide a healthy dose of beneficial bacteria for your gut.

 

Prebiotic Foods

 

While probiotics are essential for a healthy gut, they cannot thrive without prebiotics. Prebiotics are a form of dietary fiber that nourish your gut and help your probiotic supplements and foods flourish. Foods such as garlic, leeks, asparagus, bananas, and flaxseeds can help improve symptoms associated with gut health.

 

Exercise

 

Never underestimate the power of exercise. Regular movement of the body can help alleviate stress and encourage the movement of food throughout your digestive system, which can help limit the symptoms of an irritable gut.

 

Avoid Sugar

 

The ‘bad’ bacteria in our gut often feed off the sugar we have in our diet. Take a break from processed sugary foods and focus your diet on fruits, vegetables, and grains to promote a healthy gut.

 

Know your Food Intolerances

 

Not all foods work for everyone. Consuming foods you may be intolerant to can be the cause of many health and other digestive issues. The guidance of a naturopath can help you assess what foods may or may not work for you, as well as help you create a food plan on how to heal your gut.
