“You are what your gut bacteria eats “- Dr.Ayala, Physician(Pediatrics and medical genetics)
Your gut works healthy when you have daily bowel release without any abdominal pain and bloating. So, only your lifestyle and healthy eating habits play the most significant role in shaping your gut microbiome. Eating fiber rich foods not only nourishes and energizes your gut but also maintains it healthy in a long run.
Ok my dear readers, lets jump straight into the 10 important points for a healthy gut.
1- Drink enough amount of water or green teas or juices, soups and always stay hydrated.
2-Have a healthy balanced food and maintain a healthy body weight. Please don’t over-eat or crash your food intake.
Say in mind always that “We are eating to bring good health and not for taste alone”.
3- Definitely have a check on stress.
