Your way to a healthy gut

One critical factor is whether people eat foods that are highly processed or not. People who tend to eat minimally processed foods like vegetables, nuts, eggs and seafood are more likely to harbour beneficial gut bacteria. Consuming large amounts of juices, sweetened beverages, white bread, refined grains, and processed meats, on the other hand, is often associated with microbes linked to poor metabolic health.


Why is gut health important?
Some bacteria fight inflammation while others promote it. When the gut works as it should, these two types keep each other in check. But when that delicate balance gets skewed, inflammatory bacteria can take over—and they can produce metabolites that pass through the lining of the gut and into the bloodstream, spreading the inflammation to other parts of the body.

How to improve your gut health

1. Eat Probiotic Packed Foods 
Fermented foods like yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut and kombucha are also prized for their gut-boosting abilities, thanks to the presence of probiotics. Yogurt specifically may help calm gastrointestinal conditions like diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease and constipation. One study found people who eat yogurt regularly have more lactobacilli, a gut-benefitting bacteria, in their intestines, as well as fewer enterobacterium, a type of bacteria linked with inflammation.
2. Limit Your Alchol 

Drinking too much may negatively affect your microbiome, too and also cause inflammation. Such inflammation can lead to heartburn, chronic discomfort, ulcers and bacterial infections.

3. Reduce Stress Levels 

Stress isn’t just mental: Think about those butterflies you feel when you’re excited or anxious. Experts in gut health often cite the “gut-brain connection” and refer to the gut as “the second brain.” While we don’t know everything about their relationship, we do know that mental health and the gut are intimately connected.

4. Get restful and decent sleep 

Recent research has shown that losing sleep may have a negative effect on the health and diversity of the microbes residing in our guts. So, given that microbial diversity is one of the key indicators for good health—a lack of sleep could be costly. Other studies suggest that our gut microbes may actually influence how well we sleep, too.
