Still recovering from winter cough,coulds, infections?

Having a healthy gut can protect us from most things. Good bacteria helps build up our immune system which is our first line of defence.

If we are stressed, run down, taking antibiotics, eat junk food or processed food and generally not looking after ourselves due to busy lives, this will damage and inhibits good bacteria growth and allows bad bacteria to take hold and creates illness.

We can improve our good bacteria but will take about 20 weeks of continuous maintenance to take effect.

1- Take a probiotic- It needs to have more than 1 strain.

2- Eat Prebiotic foods- this will feed your probiotics and make them grow. 3-Cut the junk and processed food- this will allow bad bacteria to grow.

4- Exercise- promotes good bacteria in the gut.

5- Stress busting- Mindfulness and other stress busting ways will help daily stress.

Don’t want to take any tablets? Probiotic foods- Sauerkraut, Miso soup, Kefir, Kombucha, Sourdough bread, Apple Cider vinegar, kimchi. Prebiotic Foods- Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, flaxseeds, garlic, olives, green tea, cacao, barley.
