What can I do to improve my gut health?



The quality of your gut health is primarily dependent on the quantity of your gut microbiome, or gut flora. The higher the level of your gut bacteria, the healthier your gut and you will be.


Here are a few things you can do to increase the quantity of your gut microbiome:

  • Consume more probiotics and prebiotics, food nutrients that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut

  • Yogurt, kombucha and kimchi are examples of good probiotics, and the fiber in fruits and vegetables are examples of desirable prebiotics

  • Good, restful sleep: Sleep deprivation may lead to changes in gut microbiome composition

  • Also, microbiome diversity may help with increased sleep efficiency and total sleep time

  • Avoid eating processed foods, fried foods, and foods high in refined sugars, as these foods promote the growth of damaging bacteria

  • Learn how to proactively manage your high stress levels because they are also a known cause of adverse microbiome health

A healthy gut microbiome is essential because it contributes to:

  • A strong immune system

  • Improved heart health

  • Better brain health

  • An improved mood

  • Better sleep quality

  • Efficient digestion

  • The prevention of some cancers and autoimmune diseases
