4 Simple Steps to Optimise your Gut Health:
1) Nutrients; Zinc and Glutamine are great for strengthening the gut wall lining as is bone broths (start with short cooked) and slippery elm.
2) Probiotics whether they are a broad-spectrum supplement or through fermented foods such as sauerkraut, homemade yoghurt, kefir, kombucha, kimchi etc. This well help put back in those beneficial bacteria we lose due to poor diet, stress, pathogens and antibiotic use.
3) Reduce sugar and refined carbohydrates as much as possible. You’re feeding pathogenic bacteria when doing so.
4) Stimulate digestion and get the most out of your food by choosing bitters such rocket at the beginning of your meal. Or having a glass of warm water with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. When we salivate it helps our body to break down and absorb the nutrients as efficiently as possible.
