How to improve your gut health
How do you know if you have poor gut health? Officials from the Cleveland Clinic say some of the more obvious signs can include heartburn, gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea.
There’s no quick fix for improving gut health, as the process can take time and requires a change in diet.
It may sound intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.
Dietitians recommend slowly eliminating junk foods that can cause inflammation and feed bad gut bacteria.
In addition to eating more fruits and vegetables – along with more fiber – you can also include more foods that have probiotics in your diet, such as yogurt or kombucha.
Officials say stress can also impact gut health, so finding ways to destress is beneficial. The same goes for exercising more, which can aid in improving your digestion.
