5 KEY FOODS FOR A HEALTHY GUT
Go with your gut, they say.
…but what exactly is the gut?
Effectively, the gut is the gastrointestinal system. There are around 40 trillion bacteria in the body, most of which are in the intestines. Collectively, bacteria in the intestines are called gut microbiota, and they play a huge role in maintaining the immune system, regulating digestion, and making sure the body stays Nourished!
Here are 5 foods to include in your diet for a clean and healthy gut:
1. Greek Yogurt:
Tasty, filling, and full of natural gut-friendly probiotics, eating yogurt regularly strengthens the digestive tract and has also been linked to a lower risk of certain diseases like type 2 diabetes. Top up a yogurt bowl with our Seeds + Nuts Muesli and your favourite berries!
