2 minute read

So many aspects of your diet and lifestyle impact gut health, which is great news because it means there’s loads of opportunity to help improve it!

Here’s our top 5 tips to help boost your gut health and alleviate some common digestive discomforts.

5 Simple Ways To Improve Gut Health

1. Get More Fibre

Food high in fibre helps to feed good bacteria in the gut and keep your digestive system working optimally. Green leafy vegetables are an excellent source of fibre and have been shown to increase a specific kind of sugar which also feeds gut bacteria.

Tip:

Try our Clean Greens blend to get your daily greens in an easy scoop. Each serving provides Vitamin C, B6 & Iron - perfect for immunity and digestive health.

 

2. Eat More Plant-based Foods

Fruit and veg are rich in antioxidants which work to reduce inflammation in the gut and repair damage. They also provide an abundance of vitamins and minerals which support overall gut health and function.

Tip:
Our Berry Beauty blend contains a potent source of antioxidants and vitamins which help to boost gut health. Each scoop provides the goodness of 8 superfoods and your daily recommended dose of Vitamin C.

 

3. Balance out Antibiotics with Probiotics

Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed to fight off infection when we are unwell. Whilst you should always take any medication recommended by your doctor, antibiotics can harm our gut microbiota if taken often.

If you do need to take antibiotics be sure to balance them out by increasing probiotics in your diet - such as live yoghurt, kefir, fermented foods and probiotic drinks. This will help to replenish your gut flora.

 

4. Prioritise Sleep

Sleep is the body’s opportunity to restore and rejuvenate. Getting enough sleep is vital to keeping us healthy overall, but specifically targets the gut by helping to reduce inflammation and repair damage.

Tip:
We created our Coco Dream blend to help you unwind and sleep. It combines Raw Cacao with Reishi Mushroom, Ashwagandha, Dates and Cinnamon - which all work in synergy to reduce stress and help you drift off into a naturally deep sleep.

 

5. Manage your stress levels

Just as poor gut health can affect our mood, stress and anxiety can also have a negative impact on the gut. By managing your stress levels with a healthy diet and lifestyle you can help to reduce levels of circulating stress hormones which are harmful to gut health.

Tip:
Our Magic Matcha blend contains organic Japanese Matcha together with dual-extracted Lion’s Mane Mushroom, Ashwagandha and Ginger for calming energy. It’s adaptogenic properties help to manage stress and keep you calm whilst also supporting gut health.
