Ever wanted to improve your gut bacteria? Here’s 4 ways to get started according to scientific research. - IV Nutrition

Did you know that the human digestive system contains over 1000 different types of bacteria?

They are commonly referred to as ‘gut microbiome’ and believe it or not, they are crucial to the overall health and wellbeing of our digestive system.

As we all know, some bacteria are harmful to our bodies and if left untreated can lead to multiple diseases and health problems.

Many factors determine what type of bacteria can be found in your gut, but the most simple one is…..What we eat! Right?...

Here's four ways you can live a 'gut health focused' life:

  1. Broaden your range of FOOD.

We’ve heard it all before. Eating a healthy balanced diet is good for us. But exactly how is it good for us?

Thousands of different species of bacteria can be found inside our gut and intestines. Yet everyone’s microbiome is not the same. Each species of bacteria plays its own part in balancing a healthy system and requires different nutrients to grow.

The more species of bacteria we have the more health benefits they can be a factor in.

Here comes the diet part. A diverse diet in wholesome and fresh food can lead to a diverse microbiome.

However this isn’t always that easy to achieve given our busy schedules as most of us indulge on foods that are rich in fats and sugar.

Fruits, veggies and whole grains are a great source of nutrients for a healthy internal system.

  1. Consume Probiotics

First of all, what is a probiotic?

They are a live microorganism that are intended to have health benefits when consumed.

They’re often found in fermented foods such as yogurts, kimchi, kombucha and kefir.

These microorganisms are often thought of as harmful germs, however they’re actually really helpful.

Some bacteria help break down and digest food, produce vitamins and even destroy disease causing cells.

  1. Consume Prebiotics

Prebiotics, although a totally different thing, are equally important.

Prebiotics can be found in many types of fruits, vegetables and whole grain foods, or as a stand alone supplement.

They are generally fibre based or complex carb which standard cells cannot digest, yet certain bacteria species break them down which stimulates growth.

According to the National Institute of Health particular prebiotics have proven to reduce health issues such as high cholesterol levels, insulin and triglyceride which are leading factors for type to diabetes and heart disease.

  1. Supplement Fibre

It’s the 21st century, most of us live fast paced busy lives and struggle to maintain a healthy balanced diet, and that’s ok because you’re not alone.

Finding the right supplement can be confusing at times but IV Nutrition takes the guess work out and makes gut health simple.

We have a team of dedicated scientists in Australia making a range of health supplements that are easy to understand, high quality and Australian owned and made.

Supplementing fibre can be a great way to make up the gap in your diet, or even to simply make fibre intake part of your routine in a way that suits you.
