3 Ingredients That Do Wonders For Your Gut
Hello Beauties!!

Have you been experiencing bloating, gas, food intolerances, weight fluctuations or skin irritations?
If so, your gut may be the source of your problems.

A healthy gut contains immune cells and "good" bacteria that help your body fight off infectious agents. It also communicates with our brain through nerves and hormones to help maintain general health and well-being.

Here are 3 powerhouse ingredients to help improve our gut health:

Probiotics: Our gut health declines when we don't have the right balance of healthy microorganisms living in our digestive systems. Probiotics, found in fermented foods and supplements, help us add to that positive inner bacterial cache. Examples of probiotics: banana, kimchi, kefir, krauti, fibers etc.

Prebiotics: Eating probiotic foods is important, but we also need to feed them with the right prebiotics. Prebiotics are fibers from plants that nurture our inner garden of microbes. Some of them also soothe the gut lining and reduce inflammation. Examples of prebiotics: garlic, onion, flaxseeds, oats, asparagus etc.

Polyphenols: The plant compounds in colorful plant foods have super antioxidant activity, wiping out oxidative stress and inflammation while supporting good bacteria. These compounds help us optimize our microbiome and keep the lining of the gut strong and high functioning. Examples of polyphenols: berries, hazelnuts, rye, broccoli, basil, turmeric etc. 

Collagen also supports probiotics, this is why it's a great booster of gut health and digestion. The journey to your gut healing starts with our natural and healthy collagen cookies!
