Maintaining a healthy gut is key to your overall well-being. Beneficial bacteria in your digestive system have the capability of affecting your body’s digestion, hormone regulation, vitamin and mineral absorbency, vitamin production, immune response, and ability to eliminate toxins.
Indeed, it has been known for sometime that there is a clear link between gut health and mood. Gut health can impact mood and mental health in a variety of ways. Thus, it is important to stay on top of your eating habits and realise what foods your body responds to as well as to determine what food sensitivities you may have that could be affecting your body’s ability to absorb nutrients or digest.
There are a number of food products that are known to increase your body’s nutrient-absorption capacity and maintain a healthy gut.
You may have heard by now about the buzz surrounding apple cider vinegar. Studies have proven that having just 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar a day can help to improve overall health. Apple cider vinegar has been credited with everything from curing hiccups and alleviating cold symptoms to aiding in weight loss and helping to prevent heart disease.
Having probiotics including yoghurt every morning with your breakfast can help play a role in reducing inflammation, a risk factor involved in illnesses ranging from colds to cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and cognitive decline.
Probiotics: the good-for-you bacteria that keep your GI system functioning in tip-top shape.
Polenta also earns credit for fostering a healthy gut. Polenta’s insoluble fiber travels directly to the colon, where it ferments into multiple strands of gut flora. It’s good to note that polenta, like kombucha, varies in fermentable components.
