Load up on foods that help good bacteria thrive — your brain, skin, and every other part of your body will thank you!
A balanced gut microbiome is essential for optimal digestion, absorption of nutrients, and elimination. It also supports a healthy inflammatory response and keeps our immune system strong. Translation: Your gut matters.
Many diseases can actually be traced back to an imbalance of the gut — so how do we make sure ours is in good shape?
Start by eating foods that can repair and strengthen your gut lining. Also load up on sources of pre- and probiotics so you have plenty of the good bacteria.
Think of probiotics as healthy gut bacteria, while prebiotics (indigestible fiber) is food for the probiotics. Just like us, probiotics need fuel to do their jobs properly.
