5 Ways to Improve Gut Health

Do you struggle with heartburn, gas, bloating and constipation? These symptoms mirror whatever is happening in your digestive system.

Changes in stomach acid, gut immunity and gastrointestinal flora—the complex ecosystem of bacteria in your digestive system, occasion changes in your overall gut health. This can cause inflammation which leads to various symptoms of discomfort.

Want to protect your digestive system? Maintain a healthy routine that is not just about your diet.

Eat the right foods.

A balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables provides the fibre that builds good bacteria and gut health.

Apart from contributing to the stabilisation of glucose and cholesterol levels, dietary fibre is needed to keep the digestive system healthy.

Other foods that build a healthy digestive system include fermented milk and yoghurt that are known to be rich in probiotics and other fermented or pickled foods.

Sleep More.

When you are sleep deprived, you are more susceptible to lifestyle diseases such as obesity, which sets you up for digestive system disorder.

Be Active.

As with other aspects of health, exercise is the best way to lose weight and maintain a healthy body weight to ward off digestive system issues.

Manage stress.

Reducing stress is vital to reducing heartburn. There’s no magic diet that works. Try meditation along with other distraction techniques. 

Get help for issues like anxiety and depression.

Mood and digestive system health (especially disorders like irritable bowel syndrome) are closely linked via the brain-gut connection.

When you are in control of your moods, your digestive system is happy.
