You need to pay special attention to your gut instincts, because a healthy gut = healthy and happier you!
Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract needs to be kept healthy to keep your whole body in balance?
Great health really does begin in the gut – so what we eat plays a key part in either improving or harming our gut microbes (bacteria that’s good or bad, and lives in our intestines).
The food we eat travels to our GI tract, where it’s then broken down to enable the nutrients in our food to be absorbed by releasing hormones that trigger the proper digestive enzymes to be released.
Our GI tract supports everything from skin health and hormone balance to the elimination of waste and toxins.
So how we can help our gut do its job? Just follow a few simple steps to happy gut health!
Avoid Processed Foods and Choose a Diet That’s High in Fiber Instead
We hear so much about why we shouldn’t eat too many processed foods, but what exactly is so bad about them?
In terms of gut health, steering clear of processed foods is key, as quite often, these foods contain ingredients that your gastrointestinal tract doesn’t even recognize as food!
When consumed, artificial foods can be identified as bad microbes or “unwelcome invaders” that trigger inflammation as your body tries to fight something that it sees as being bad news.
The result? An inflamed GI tract and a stressed-out gut. These “unwelcome invaders” need to be defeated!
By eating foods that are high in fiber instead of processed foods – you’ll help improve the diversity and quality of your gut bacteria. High fiber foods can help the good bacteria beat out the bad bacteria.
Some delicious foods that are high in fiber are avocados, broccoli, raspberries, peas, oatmeal, lentils, and whole wheat pasta.

Sleep deprivation can lead to your GI tract functioning at a depressed level. Your gut needs rest too!
In simple terms – getting enough sleep lowers cortisol levels and lets your gut take a breather.
Get Some Probiotics In!
Probiotics are sources of ‘good’ bacteria, essential for keeping your gut in great shape. They’re also easy to work into your regular diet!
You can buy probiotics supplements over the counter, or you can get them from foods such as yogurt, sourdough bread, and sauerkraut.
