3 Ways to Make Your Gut Happy

Oct 8th 2019

Healthy digestion can make a significant difference in how we feel and think. You’ve likely heard that the gut is our second brain. How many of us have experienced brain fog, fatigue, or over-stimulation after eating? These are common signs after noshing on something that doesn’t agree with us not to mention the physical discomforts such as bloating, nausea, and other types of belly pain.

The digestive process is more taxing on our bodies than we realize and requires energy. Think about how much is involved in the process: chewing, swallowing, all of the digestive organs going to work from stomach to liver, pancreas, kidneys, and intestines. It’s a lot. While the digestive breakdown and nutrient assimilation may differ depending on what you’ve eaten, the general process is the same. No matter what you consume, it’s a good idea to assist your body in the digestive process.

1. Support Your Digestion

You can help your body to break down foods you're about to eat efficiently by taking Digestive Enzymes before a meal. These are synergistically designed to aid your body in the digestive process for maximum nutrient absorption and assimilation. Our Super Probiotics are a great way to support good gut bacteria as well as feed it with delicious fiber from Super Prebiotics.

2. Drink Warm Beverages

Sipping warm fluids can help with the digestive process, especially tea. Our bodies like to keep a core temperature of roughly 100 degrees F, which is optimal for digestion. Drinking fluids at this temperature can also help support our gut microbiome.

Chanca Piedra Tea is noted for its healthful benefits in helping support the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder while also promoting balanced blood sugar levels.

Matcha & Mushrooms is a great warm beverage option and includes a combination of matcha green tea and maitake mushrooms - a fantastic duo for digestion support, and powerful superfoods to help your metabolism as well.

3. Consume Optimal Amounts of Fiber

As we all know, maintaining a whole-foods high fiber diet is a must for a healthy digestive tract. Organic greens, veggies, fruits, and even herbs, nuts and seeds are all great sources of fiber.

Chia Seeds are extremely high in fiber, in addition to protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and other vitamins and minerals. When chia seeds are introduced to moisture they create a gel due to the soluble fiber they contain, which works as a prebiotic to support probiotic growth in the gut. Some prefer to soak chia seeds (to create the gel) before consuming, which can be helpful for digestion. Chia seeds and chia powder are both great add-in options for smoothies. Maybe get creative and make a delicious Chia Seed Pudding.

Supergreens is organic green superfoods such as dark leafy veggies, herbs, algae, sea vegetables, and grasses are all fantastic for digestion. This is for anyone who appreciates the convenience, yet isn't willing to sacrifice the diversity of superfoods they can enjoy daily.
