How To Improve Your Gut Health For A Better Immunity

How To Improve Your Gut Health For A Better Immunity

There is a two-way connection between your gut microbiome and your immune system. By providing your gut with good bacteria and prioritising your physical and mental health, it helps to maintain the right balance of microorganisms in your gut, which then helps to support your immunity. 

Read on for 7 ways you can improve your gut health to boost your immunity.

  1. A Good Diet For A Healthy Gut

Your diet plays a major role in maintaining and improving your gut health. There are certain food categories that are encouraged to help beneficial bacteria to thrive in your gut. These include prebiotics, probiotics and fibre-rich foods.

Prebiotic foods include bananas, garlic, whole grains and asparagus. To enhance your probiotic intake, look for fermented foods such as fermented vegetables, kimchi, yoghurt and cottage cheese. Finally, fibre-rich foods include certain vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts and bread.

  1. Support With Supplements

If you want to give your gut heath some extra support, you can take supplements that are specifically formulated to support healthy gut microbiome. Taking supplements can help prevent the development of bad bacteria while promoting the growth of good bacteria.

Wanderlust’s Prebiotic Gut Goodness is a consciously created plant-active fibre blend that gives you natural sources of prebiotic fibre to help keep your gut happy.

Another easy way of improving your gut health is with the Sup Gut Love Gummies. These gummies nourish your gut with good bacteria.

  1. Prioritise Your ZZZ's

You already know by now how important sleep is and that it should be a top priority. If you miss out on sleep it can impact the body rhythms that help maintain your gut health. Having gut problems can then impact your sleep, creating a negative cycle leading to more health issues.

If you’re struggling with getting a good night of restorative sleep, you should try using a weighted blanket. The Beautifully Healthy Weighted Blanket uses firm and controlled pressure to induce a feeling of calm, making it easier to fall asleep.

  1. Manage Your Stress

Stress can manifest in many ways, impacting your health and wellbeing, including your gut. That’s why it’s important you take time to unwind and employ practices that can help you manage your stress. This can be done with helpful mindfulness activities like yoga and meditation. You could also try breathing exercises as a way to start your day, which can be enhanced with calming essential oils to soothe your anxiety. We love the Oil Garden Stress Relief Oil as it offers the calming effects of sweet orange, mandarin, lavender, bergamot and cedarwood, providing a sense of relief and comfort.

  1. Stay Hydrated

Water can have a positive effect on your gut as it benefits the health of your intestinal lining which allows good bacteria to thrive. If you struggle with keeping up your hydration, you could benefit from a reusable drink bottle. The sleek and durable Glass Active Flask from Joco Reusable provides optimal drinking during any occasion, making it perfect for carrying around the house or throwing in your bag when you go out.

  1. Move Your Body 

Movement is extremely important in increasing the diversity of healthy bacteria in your gut, improving your overall wellness. Aiming for 30 minutes of exercise a day is a great way to promote a balanced gut.

  1. Limit Alcohol Intake

Limiting your alcohol intake has been a big trend recently for many reasons, one of which being for the benefits of your gut health. Too much alcohol can negatively affect your microbiome and is associated with inflammation, which is a sign of an unhealthy gut. To keep your gut in balance, try drinking less or you could even jump on the sober train.
