JENNY’S NUTRITION ADVICE
PRO-BIOTICS – YUM FOR GUTS!
A GOOD DIET CAN BE YUMMY TOO!
How is exercise linked to good gut health? Studies have shown that exercise has a number of benefits which contribute towards our gut health. It is also linked to an increased number of beneficial microbial species.
Low intensity exercise can also help to relieve constipation and improve GI transit.
Yoga also has a positive effect on the gut-brain-axis, which is essential for our digestion, and has been shown to help improve our mental and emotional wellbeing.
Fitness fear? If you’re experiencing gut issues make sure you are looking forward to your workouts and not dreading them, as stress will exacerbate a GI problems!
How to optimise your gut health and digestion. Trillions of bacteria live in your GI tract! They are responsible for many different things including digestion, immune modulation, hormones, and many more!
Remember 70% of immune system is in your gut, so it’s important to feed and nourish all the good bacteria within our guts with pre-biotic rich foods and fermented foods.
What we pre-biotics? They are a type of carbohydrate found mostly in fibre-rich fruits, they are a type of fibre that. Stimulates the good bacteria within our guts.
