Your gut health has a direct impact on many areas of your overall wellness, such as your digestion, sleep quality, immunity, and mental health just to name a few. Considering how important it is to maintain a happy gut, we've compiled 5 steps you can take to make your gut health a priority, so get started and watch as your wellness improves!
1. Eat the Rainbow
Feed your gut a range of fresh wholefoods such as fruits, veggies, legumes, seeds, nuts, wholegrains and beans to boost your fibre intake, get all the important phytonutrients with prebiotic-like polyphenols (antioxidants), regulate your mood and maintain a happy microbiome.
2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
We all know about the many benefits of sipping on H2O throughout the day, but water also provides a boost to your gut by helping to break down your food so that your body can absorb the nutrients and flush out any unwanted toxins.
3. The Two S's
Lack of sleep and excessive stress can also play a role in poor gut health - who knew?! Prioritise mindfulness with deep breathing exercises to clear your mind, commit to a weekly yoga practice, journal out your thoughts or try our Adaptogenic De-Stress or Deep Sleep Remedy for an added dose of calm in your day. Incorporating simple self-care tools into your daily routine can uplift your mental wellbeing and improve your sleep quality.
4. Get Moving
Did someone say hot girl walk? Simple cardio exercises such as walking or riding your bike can signal to the muscles of the gut to get moving and kickstart the digestive process. Or you could try a pilates or yoga class to fight stress and improve your sleep quality simultaneously.
