Gut Healthy Diet Tips for a Happier, Healthier You

We believe that a healthy gut is the cornerstone of overall wellness. A balanced gut can enhance digestion, boost immunity, and even improve mental health. To help you achieve optimal gut health, we've compiled some essential dietary tips that are easy to incorporate into your daily routine.


Incorporate Probiotics

Probiotics are live beneficial bacteria that can help maintain a healthy balance in your gut microbiome. You can find them in supplements and fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, and miso. Including these in your diet can enhance the diversity of your gut flora and support digestion.

Pre & Probiotic Supplement

Feed Your Gut with Prebiotics

Prebiotics are non-digestible fibres that serve as food for probiotics. Foods rich in prebiotics include garlic, onions, leeks, asparagus, bananas, and whole grains. By nourishing the beneficial bacteria in your gut, prebiotics help them thrive and multiply, promoting a healthier gut environment. That's why we offer a Pre & Probiotic Supplement to incorporate both for better absorption. Check them out here.


Eat a Diverse Range of Foods

A varied diet rich in different types of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes can help cultivate a diverse microbiome. Different foods offer various nutrients and fibres that support the growth of different bacterial species, contributing to a more balanced and resilient gut.


Limit Processed Foods and Sugars

Processed foods and sugars can negatively impact your gut health by promoting the growth of harmful bacteria. Try to minimise your intake of sugary snacks, fast foods, and processed meals. Instead, opt for whole, unprocessed foods that provide more nutritional benefits.


Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is crucial for maintaining a healthy gut. Water helps with digestion and nutrient absorption and supports the mucosal lining of the intestines, which is essential for a healthy gut barrier. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water a day, more if you are active or live in a hot climate.


Include Fibre-Rich Foods

Dietary fibre is essential for good gut health. It helps regulate bowel movements and feeds the good bacteria in your gut. High-fibre foods include fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. Gradually increase your fibre intake to prevent digestive discomfort.


Manage Stress

Chronic stress can negatively affect your gut health by altering the gut-brain axis and impacting the diversity of your microbiome. Practice stress management techniques such as meditation, yoga, deep breathing exercises, or engaging in hobbies you enjoy.


Get Enough Sleep

Quality sleep is vital for overall health, including your gut. Poor sleep can disrupt the balance of your gut bacteria and affect your digestive health. Aim for 7-9 hours of restful sleep each night and maintain a consistent sleep schedule.


Exercise Regularly

Regular physical activity can benefit your gut health by promoting healthy digestion and reducing stress. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week, such as walking, cycling, or swimming.


Consider a Gut Health Test

Understanding the unique composition of your gut microbiome can help tailor dietary choices to your specific needs. We offer a comprehensive gut health test that provides detailed insights into your gut bacteria. While not a necessity, this test can be a helpful tool in optimising your gut health.


Here’s to a healthier gut and a healthier you!
