Do you ever get HANGRY? The term for being hungry and angry 😊
If you know you know right?😊
Do you ever make decisions based on your strong intuition and ‘gut feeling’ over mental analysis?
Well… research shows that our MOODS can be affected by the balance of microbes in the intestines.
Here’s my personal top 7 ways of giving your gut some love:
Eat a varied diet rich in seasonal veg- Different gut bacteria feed of different fibre, so variety is key. Seasonal local veg are full of nutrients. Increase fibre intake gradually & ensure you drink enough as fibre needs fluid to work.
Include Fermented foods- Sauerkraut, miso, kimchi, kefir, natto.. All help
Try to de -stress and get good quality sleep- There’s a direct link between your brain and your gut. Being stressed and tired can have a profound effect on your gut health.
Exercise daily to regulate bowel habit, particularly if you’re prone to constipation. It’s also associated with greater microbial diversity.
Sit down when eating and chew your food well. Digestion starts in the mouth.
Avoid wearing tight clothing- Placing external pressure on your gut can aggravate symptoms.
Avoid unnecessary medications- Certain types of painkillers & antibiotics can aggravate gut problems & disrupt your gut bacteria.
