Numerous studies have been conducted that show the direct relation between gut health and the immune system. The gut bacteria live in the intestine and is extremely important for our digestive health. Due to our current unhealthy lifestyles of too much stress, too little sleep, and the consumption of junk food, we are destroying our gut microbes. If you are facing problems like skin irritation, food intolerances, and weight changes, there’s a dire need to take care of your gut health.
According to Ayurveda, all the diseases start from our stomach, and we can prevent many diseases if we go the natural way. So, today, let’s see different ways to improve gut health one by one: -
Avoid High-Sugary Diet
A high amount of sugars can decrease the friendly bacteria in your gut. High amounts of sugar have been linked to inflammation in the body which can cause a lot of other diseases in the body. Therefore, try to limit your sugar consumption for a healthy gut.
Get Enough Sleep
Not getting enough sleep can have detrimental impacts on your gut health. Every individual must make their sleep a priority and get rest for at least 7-8 hours a day.
Drink Enough Water
Staying hydrated is beneficial for the mucosal lining of the intestines, and the balance of gut bacteria in the stomach. Drinking 2 litres of water every day is enough for adults to stay hydrated. If possible, start your day with lukewarm lemon water. Vitamin C with Honey helps to fire up your Agni.
Eat High Fibre & Fermented Foods
Make a habit of eating fibrous foods such as peas, oats, legumes, porridge, etc. They are known to boost gut health. Fermented foods such as Yoghurt are also essential for the health of gut bacteria. Start drinking lassi after your lunch, as it will prevent gas and bloating.
Check for Food Intolerances
Symptoms like cramping, bloating, and abdominal pain are the symptoms of food intolerance. Try changing your diet laded with sugar and salt to more plant-based simple foods. A healthy diet can contribute a lot to the health of good bacteria.
