If I were to ask you what the most important organ in your body is, my gut instinct is that you wouldn’t say, well, your gut. But the fact of the matter is that your gut is the gateway to your health. In recent years it’s been said to have an impact on everything from your mental health to how often you go to the bathroom…
And as you’d expect, if we don’t look after our gut it can wreak havoc with our hormonal function throughout the body and leave us with impaired immune and nervous systems. Yikes. Luckily, maintaining your best gut health isn’t hard at all. Here are some simple tips for restoring the health in your gut:
1. Eat more fermented foods.
Like probiotics, fermented foods can also introduce good bacteria into your gut. Besides yoghurt, some other examples of fermented foods include:
- Soy sauce
- Fermented tofu
