Bite-Sized: How to Improve Gut Health

Ways to improve our gut health with nutritional therapist Alice Mackintosh.

An increasing body of evidence is demonstrating that the health of our gut microbiome affects the health of numerous other systems in the body and mind. In this bite-sized episode we look at how we can improve our gut health from the importance of fibre-rich plant foods and probiotics, as well as the role of processed foods and stress.

Here’s a brief recap:

  • Prioritise increasing fibre intakes, but go slowly
  • Aim for 30 different whole plant foods each week
  • Include more herbs and spices
  • Add in fermented foods little and often
  • Consider probiotic supplements
  • Try to reduce highly processed foods and burnt foods
  • Address managing stress levels
