4 Tips For A Healthy Gut

4 Tips For A Healthy Gut

Gut health is a growing trend, and for a very good reason. The gut is the hero when it comes to full body health, and as Hippocrates once said “All disease begins in the gut”.

Here’s 4 key tips that can help you support your gut… 

1. Relax The Body 

Busy lives can put your body into a stressed state, also known as ‘Fight or Flight’. This puts a lot of pressure on your gut. To counter this, we want to activate the opposite system called ‘Rest and Digest’. This creates a more optimal environment for your gut to operate at it’s best.

  • Tip 1. Try deep belly breathing. This tells your body that you are safe!
  • Tip 2. Opt for restorative exercise over high intensity e.g. walking rather than running, yoga rather than HIIT.

2. Heal and Seal the Gut!

Many factors including stress, toxins and diet can affect the health of your gut lining. Leaky gut is common and refers to the gut being like a sieve where it can leak not so good stuff (food proteins, bacteria and viruses) into your blood stream. Healthy gut lining is important for optimal full body health. 

  • Tip 1. Avoid inflammatory foods like gluten and refined sugar.
  • Tip 2. All hail amino acids! Bone Broth is a great source of key amino acids needed for healing and sealing the gut including glutamine, glycine, gelatin and collagen.

3. Get the Bacteria Back!

Studies suggest that humans are 10x more bacteria cells than human cells. It's important to keep the good guys in the gut topped up for mood, metabolism, immunity, digestions, skin and full body health. 

  • Tip 1. Find a quality probiotic supplement.
  • Tip 2. Consume fermented foods like sauerkraut and kombucha daily.

4. Support Your Digestion! 

In order to extract all of the nutrients and 'goodies' out of your food it's important to support your digestion as much as possible. 

  • Tip 1. Start your day with a glass of warm lemon water.
  • Tip 2. Chew your food until it turns to liquid.
  • Tip 3. Consume your meals in a peaceful environment without distractions.
