It is so important to look after our gut.  Ensuring we have the best possible balance of gut bacteria (microbiome) improves our immune function and ability to digest foods, increases the nutrients available and enhances cell communication.

There are many factors that can affect our gut health including:

  • Stress
  • Antibiotics and medications
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Born by C-section
  • Environmental chemicals
  • Severe gastro and travellers’ diarrhoea
  • The foods we eat.

Watch this video for a great introduction to how we can help boost our gut health:

One of the easiest factors to control is our diet. Foods that are good for our gut include organic fruit and vegetables, seeds, eggs, nuts, meat and seafood. Fermented foods also help increase the amount of good bacteria. Some examples of fermented foods include sauerkraut, kefir and kimchi. You could also try making your own probiotic yoghurt.

If you don’t eat fermented foods, you could also help to boost your good gut bacteria by taking Changing Habits Probiotics.
