Spring Clean Your Gut Health: 8 Tips for a Happier, Healthier Gut

Hey Sanalites!

Today we’re shining a light on one of our favourite topics: gut health. Taking care of your gut is so important for overall well-being - from digestion to mood, skin health, and even immune function. If you've been feeling a bit off or want to optimise your gut health, here are some top tips to get you started!

  1. Prioritise Fibre

Fibre is your gut's best friend. It helps regulate digestion, supports healthy gut bacteria, and keeps things moving smoothly. Load up on fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts, and seeds. Psyllium husk is also a fantastic source of soluble fiber that can really boost digestive health.

  1. Include Fermented Foods

Fermented foods are like magic for your gut - helping maintain a healthy balance of gut bacteria. They're rich in probiotics - the friendly bacteria that promote gut health. Think yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha. 

  1. Stay Hydrated

Good hydration is key for gut health. Water helps your digestive system work efficiently and supports the mucosal lining of your intestines. Herbal teas, like peppermint or ginger, or matcha green tea, can also soothe digestion.

  1. Manage Stress

Did you know stress can impact your gut health? Practice stress-reducing activities like yoga, meditation, or simply taking time to take some deep belly breaths or unwind with a good book. A calm mind supports a happy gut!

  1. Get Quality Sleep

Sleep is when your body does a lot of its healing and repair work, including in the gut. Aim for 7-8 hours of quality sleep per night to keep your gut—and your whole body—healthy and happy.

  1. Consider a High-Quality Probiotic Supplement

Our SANA Marine Collagen+ is enhanced with our blend of probiotics for digestive wellbeing, as well as the digestive enzyme bromelain, to contribute to the digestion of collagen peptides. Collagen is not just great for your skin—it can also benefit your gut health. Sourced from sustainably harvested fish, this collagen powder supports gut integrity and can help with leaky gut issues. Plus, it's easy to add into smoothies or morning coffee!

  1. Limit Processed Foods

Processed foods, especially those high in sugar and unhealthy fats, can wreak havoc on your gut. Opt for whole, unprocessed foods as much as possible to support a healthy gut microbiome.

  1. Listen to Your Body

Last but certainly not least, tune in to what your body is telling you. Pay attention to how you feel after eating certain foods. Do certain foods leave you feeling tired and bloated? What makes you feel energised and helps keep you fuller for longer, and feeling regular. Your gut is unique, so experiment with different foods and habits to find what works best for you.

Remember, improving your gut health is a journey, not a quick fix. Incorporate these tips into your daily routine, and your gut will thank you with better digestion, improved mood, and overall vitality. Here's to a happier gut and a healthier, radiant you.
