FOODS FOR A HEALTHY DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

Below are the recommended foods to include in your diet to improve gut health:

 

Fermented foods like Kimchi, pickles or miso

These plant-based fermented products have the good bacteria in them, as well as essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, A, selenium and iron.

 

High fibre foods like artichoke, asparagus and beans

These foods contain insoluble fiber that travels to the large intestinal intact where it becomes a good food source for healthy bacteria and helps it multiply. They are also rich in nutrients that help fight free radicals and protect against disease.

 

Organic yoghurt with live cultures

Not all yogurt products have those live bacteria in them. Choose well while reading the label to get the best product. They are also a good source of protein, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

 

Polyphenols containing foods such as green tea, dark chocolate and olive oil 

These compounds are found in a lot of fruits and vegetables as well as green tea and dark chocolate. They have a protective effect towards the cells of the mucosa lining the intestines and it seems that they act as prebiotics or food source for the healthy bacteria.

 

Anti-inflammatory foods such as turmeric and ginger

These roots have been used for years to help heal and protect against disease. Their anti-inflammatory properties protect the gut and make it an optimal environment for probiotic growth.
