Healthy Gut = Healthy Life

Our gut bacteria plays a crucial role in our health and well-being. It plays a role in everything from our digestion, metabolism, and mood to bone density and our immune system. When it comes to mental health, health gut bacteria impacts our body’s production of serotonin and dopamine. Translation: depression, anxiety, stress management, motivation, cognition, even Autism is impacted by gut health.

Signs of an unhealthy gut:

  • Food Intolerances

  • Sleep Issues

  • Sugar Cravings/High Sugar Diet

  • Constant Fatigue

  • Autoimmune Conditions

  • Skin Irritations/Sensitivities

  • Unintentional Weight Changes

  • Upset Stomach (Bloating, Gas, Heartburn, Constipation, Diarrhea)

Improving your gut health will improve your overall health. It will enable your body to absorb nutrients better. It will also help the body produce additional vitamins, including vitamin K2 which many people are deficient in. Balanced gut health means better mood, decreased dairy and gluten allergies, and regulation of insulin sensitivity. A health gut also protects us from anti-nutrients and pathogens.

Ways to improve gut health:

  • Manage Stress

  • Stay Hydrated

  • Get Proper Sleep

  • Chew Your Food Thoroughly

  • Eat Fermented Foods

  • Take Quality Probiotic Supplements

  • Eat Prebiotic Foods

  • Drink Bone Broth
