5 ways to support your gut health

Gut health always seems to a be a hot topic and something that people commonly suffer with. But just because symptoms are common, does not mean it is normal. Many factors come into play in regards to the functioning of the gut (factors such as sleep, stress and physical activity) and diet plays an important role in optimising it. Below are 5 ways in which you can help you support your gut health. For a more comprehensive guide, you can download my free resource here.

Eat probiotic rich foods

Incorporate foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha into your diet to introduce beneficial bacteria to your gut.

Consume a fibre rich diet

Consume plenty of high-fibre foods like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes to nourish gut bacteria and promote healthy digestion.

Stay hydrated

Drinking enough water helps maintain optimal digestion and supports the mucosal lining of the intestines.

Manage stress

Chronic stress can negatively impact gut health. Engage in stress-reducing activities like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing.

Limit processed foods and sugar

Minimise consumption of processed foods and excess sugar, which can disrupt the balance of gut bacteria and lead to inflammation.

As mentioned, many factors come into play when it comes to supporting our gut health but these small changes may have significant impact. If you are struggling with gut discomfort, make sure you speak to your GP or Registered Nutrition professional.
