Give Yourself a Gut Check

Give Yourself a Gut Check

Gut health is becoming more and more important in modern medicine. Recent research has shown that an unhealthy gut can contribute to a wide range of health concerns. Researchers have even made a link between anxiety and depression and gut health.

Your gut works hard to keep you fit and healthy. Here are a few tips to help prepare your gut to work at its best for the Winter season.

Avoid Gut Irritants

Gut Irritants

Try swapping out sugary snacks for high-fibre foods.  The bad bacteria in your gut loves to feast on sugar.

Intermittent Fasting

 

Intermittent Fasting

A fast of at least 12 hours can give your digestive system a rest, and helps it to recover and heal from the digestion process.

Manage Your Stress 

Stress

Your gut won’t work at its best when you’re stressed. Breathing exercises and meditation can help mitigate stress.

Snooze it Up!

Snooze it Up
