Many of us have now heard the term ‘Gut Health’, but what does it mean, and how do we keep on top of it? There have been many studies carried out that focus on improving our food consumption and seeing what can really affect the gut health. Digestion comes as a big part of your gut health, but that’s not all it is. 

We recognise that to really feel our best, we need to focus on improving our gut health. As a company that focuses on providing our customers with the best quality of supplements, we want to share the standard practices you should take to keep on top of your health. We explore below some options that you can include in your day-to-day to help you feel your best and fight any bacteria diseases.

Having a Diverse Diet

Different types of foods provide us with different vitamins and microbiomes. We need those to ensure our bodies consume what it needs in order to be able to function well and fight off any bacterial diseases. “The microbiome is the collection of all microbes, such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and their genes, that naturally live on our bodies and inside us.”(National Institue of Environmental Science).

It can be hard to ensure you have a diverse diet, especially if you’re not a fan of other cultural foods that use different types of meat, vegetables & spices. It is known that the traditional Western diet is 75% produced from only 12 plants and 5 animal species. So we are already naturally lacking the diverse microbiomes.

One way we can ensure to really diversify our diet is to explore some of the foreign food in supermarkets or find an actual foreign shop. You often can find those in any country, as many cultures want to ensure their food is accessible from other parts of the world. More and more standard supermarkets and trying to become more diverse in the foods they sell, as they recognise the demand. Take an opportunity next time you’re in your local supermarket to visit the aisle you have never walked down before. Usually, they’re called ‘World’s Food’ aisles.

Another way is to explore different supplements that can support your gut health. When you’re lacking time and places where you are able to find different types of foods you can turn to natural/organic supplements, as they are designed to boost your overall health, and that also means your gut health. This is a great alternative for someone with a very busy lifestyle.

Here at Internal Youth, we only provide high-quality organic supplements, which have been inspired by ancient traditional Indian medicine. 

Other Options

Ensuring you have diverse microbiomes isn't the only aspect that affect your gut health. Mental wellbeing has a huge influence on your digestion and many studies have shown that high stress levels can create bacterial diseases and cause inflammations. We explore different ways you can improve your mental health in this post. 

Other aspects that can improve your gut health are eating whole grain foods, ensuring you consume lots of vegetables and foods that are fermented.
