Gut health refers to the esophagus, intestines and digestive organs of the body. Obviously gut health is a very important key in our overall body’s health, as it is responsible for digesting foods and absorbing nutrients. Healing your gut allows the body to build a stronger immune system and produce the right kind of bacteria that tells your brain that it’s okay to feel good again.

 

Some signs of an unhealthy gut:

Some foods to improve your gut health are:

 

Yogurt:

A word we hear all the time regarding yogurt is “probiotic.” Probiotics are bacteria in your gut that are good for you and maintain balance. Many yogurts have live probiotics in them that help to promote your gut’s natural bacterial balance. When probiotics are balanced and doing their job in your gut, your immune system will get a happy boost and your digestive system.

 

Kimchi/fermented veggies:

Kimchi is a Korean staple and is a traditional side dish made from salted and fermented vegetables, most commonly napa cabbage and Korean radish. Kimchi contains the lactic acid bacteria Lactobacillus kimchii, as well as other lactic acid bacteria that may benefit digestive health. Bacterias like these help to maintain the body’s natural healthy balance.

 

Cacao:

The cocoa bean or simply cocoa, which is also called the cacao bean or cacao, is the dried and fully fermented seed of Theobroma cacao. Cacao has been shown to have prebiotic activity, helping to fuel good bacteria and rebalance digestive health. It helps bacteria to ferment away and produce health-giving substances such as short-chain fatty acids. These properties are likely due to the presence of dietary fibres in cacao. These fibres cannot be digested by our digestive tract, but instead are fermented by the good bacteria to fuel their colonies.

 

Algae:

Chlorella is a green algae that helps the body eliminate impurities, supports digestion and helps maintain the friendly bacteria in the gut. It is rich in protein, vitamin A, iron, and Vitamin B12. It is one of the few plants that includes all the essential amino acids.
