Do you have a healthy Gut?

A healthy gut contains healthy bacteria and immune cells that ward off infectious agents like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. A healthy gut also communicates with the brain through nerves and hormones, which helps maintain general health and well-being and helps with restful sleep.


So, what does a healthy gut need?

Foods like:

Sweet potatoes, spinach, beets, carrots, and fennel are full of naturally gut-enhancing fiber. Besides fruits and vegetables, whole grains are a rich source of fiber, too. Fermented foods like yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut and kombucha are also prized for their gut-boosting abilities, thanks to the presence of probiotics.


How can I improve my gut health?

  • Eat more whole grains, nuts, load up on veggies, beans, and fresh fruits.

  • Eat fermented foods that have beneficial bacteria.

  • Eat more dark chocolate and foods with polyphenols.

  • Blend in the spices.
