Gut health, gut health and more gut health

Gut health, one of the most talked about health topics of late (behind keto diets that is!) but why is it so important?

Having good gut health is crucial for overall well-being, physical and mental health. Our stomach has millions of nerve cells, which help digestion. For any health professional we go on and on about the importance of our digestive system that’s because we know how beneficial it is to so many aspects of our health. Immune function, skin health , mental health, energy production, metabolism, vitamin absorption and physical health are ALL influenced by how good our gut health really is.

So how do you know if you have bad gut health? The common signs are bloating, IBS, reflux, feeling tired for no particular reason, and generally feeling not yourself. Improving your gut health can be quite simple (in most cases). Adding certain foods to your diet and removing any processed foods can be the simple solution. If you already have a relative healthy diet then it could be something you are missing from your diet or an underlying condition that hasn’t been diagnosed.

Below are some of the foods you should start incorporating into your diet:

  • Slippery elm
  • Kombucha
  • Daily uplifter powder
  • Psyllium Husks (more fibre)
  • Chia seeds (black or white)
  • Kimchi
  • Flaxseeds
  • Green juice (Juice Syndicate Cold Press, green meanie)
