When your gut is unhappy, then it's likely your health is unhappy too.
Everything in your body is interconnected and works together to keep you well and functioning at your best. The gut is quite literally at the center of all the interconnected action happening and when it is in disarray, then it can cause imbalances throughout your whole system and can lead to mild to severe health conditions if not properly taken care of.
The gut is considered the "second brain" in your body because of how much influence it can have over health, mood, digestion and more. It houses important bacteria that are responsible for keeping things in top notch condition and when they are struggling, then it can result in a number of symptoms, symptoms that can often be confused for other conditions or assumed to be symptoms of another condition entirely.
60-80% of your immune system is located in your gut. Because of this, there have been proven connections between gut health and autoimmune diseases, diabetes, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, eczema and a number of other symptoms and health conditions many people experience, like the ones listed above.
These symptoms don't always guarantee a person is struggling with gut issues, but taking the time to care for your gut never hurts and could actually do more for your health than you might realize.
One of the best and most direct ways to help improve your gut health is through natural, gut-healing foods, foods that are abundantly provided to you by Mother Nature.
These are a few of the top gut-healing foods out there that we highly recommend. Individually they can do wonders on their own, but when combined, they can create a powerful combo that's difficult to rival.
Ginger is an incredibly powerful spice that can do a number of great things for your health.
When it comes to the gut specifically, ginger can have a positive affect on the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which is a common condition of the gut where people often experience a lot of bloat, gas and other uncomfortable symptoms of indigestion. Ginger can help ease any inflammation involved with the IBS and can help protect from further harm or damage, strengthening your gut and immunity.
Ginger can also help with relieving gas, nausea and heartburn and can help promote nutrient absorption, helping boost your overall health and your body's ability to keep itself properly nourished.
Turmeric is one of our favorite spices and has also grown in popularity over the past decade and for good reason. It's a king among spices and can do some incredible things for your body.
For your gut specifically, turmeric is best known for its natural inflammation-reducing properties that can really help provide your gut and digestive system some relief when it's worked up and struggling. It can also help relieve symptoms of IBS and other digestive issues and also help prevent the further development of gut and digestive conditions.
Turmeric also can help stimulate the motion and release of bile, which is important for the breaking down and absorption of nutrients. It can also help with excessive gas and other digestive discomforts that stem from the condition of the gut.
Turkey tail may seem like a random superfood to focus on, but we're featuring it for a reason.
Turkey tail can have a great affect on the gut, immunity and digestion. Along with helping make the whole digestive process function more smoothly, turkey tail also naturally contains some important prebiotics that can help balance your gut's microbiome, which is essentially the homeostasis and balance of the bacteria in your gut.
Turkey tail can also help people who struggle with conditions like Leaky Gut Syndrome, which is a condition where food allergies and sensitivities can be exasperated and also lead to fatigue, joint pain and other digestive issues.
As mentioned, each of these foods individually can do great things, but when they're combined together, their potential abilities are only fortified and strengthened.
