3 Ways To Improve Gut Health

Here is a breakdown of the 3 important ways on how to improve gut health:

  • The right diet (gut-friendly diverse diet)
  • The balance between good and bad bacteria
  • Effective sporal probiotic supplement: Just Thrive Probiotic

The richness of our gut

Our gut plays a pivotal role in our overall wellbeing. We can only achieve this by having an amazing pumped-up digestive system supported by the right gut-friendly diet.

Our digestive tract contains over 100 trillion bacterial cells and these strongly contribute to our overall well-being. More specifically, their huge diversity is essential to our life.

Considering we are more bacteria than humans, roughly 90%, we all should really focus on keeping that 90% of our body happy and balanced.

But how can we do this?

Diet, diet, diet…

Your gastrointestinal microbiome strongly depends on your dietary diversity and we really are talking about the broader the better (much better)! The larger the richness of microbiome species living in our GI tract, the more we can consider ourselves as healthy individuals.

It simply works just like any other ecosystem. Our microbiome’s effectiveness crucially depends on what we put in it. It is always flooded with energy in the form of undigested and partially digested foods, and in many cases medicines, dietary supplements, alcohol, unprocessed foods and other chemicals.

The microbiome species convert this into new molecules, which then send messages to physiological systems in our body.  If the molecules produced are beneficial for our health, we are healthy and glow with positive energy. If the molecules produced are potentially harmful we end up being sick and our mental health is compromised.

Let’s be realistic! We all have our guilty pleasures, especially if you are a foodie like myself and just like everybody else on this planet we love the cheeky slice of pizza or a sneaky Friday glass (..or two) of red wine after a long and stressful week.

So yes, I get it.

I am a human too, believe it or not, but this shouldn’t stop you from finding that right balance. So what if you had a slice of delicious, rich chocolate cake after your dinner. Don’t let one tiny slip rotate the entire balance downwards that will create a snowball effect of multiple mistakes.

Instead, wake up the next morning and make the most nutrient boosting, colourful smoothie bowl you ever had in your life. I dare you to try it. Your guilt won’t follow you anymore, you will feel energised, positive and ready to have an amazing day.

The good and bad balance

We all know a healthy balanced diet, high in fibre and diverse consumption of fruit and vegetables benefit our microbiota species to thrive, hence keeping us healthy.

To adopt a healthy gut-friendly diet in our everyday lives can sometimes be challenging, but it certainly isn’t impossible.

Conversely, a diet high in processed foods, caffeine, alcohol, gluten, GMO and red meat lead to microbial imbalance (dysbiosis) that eventually leads to many potential health problems.

Having a gut that is out of balance has been associated with many diseases, such as:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Leaky Gut
  • Colitis
  • Obesity
  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • and even cancer in some cases.

Effective sporal probiotic supplement

Did you know 95% of probiotics on the market are comprised of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) and Bifidobacteria strains? 

Daamn, and we’re talking about the importance of creating diversity in our gut, yet a large majority of the probiotic supplements on the market are all the same and very likely don’t even work.

I couldn’t believe that this is the BEST I could get for my gut. And so, I kept digging…and digging…and digging!

Until I found something incredible. Yay! Bingoooo!

The magical sporal Just Thrive® containing 100% Bacillus spore-forming probiotic strains. This probiotic supplement uses a completely different approach that has been obtained from the microbiome project and enables the bacterial strains to successfully enter the gut without being damaged by external factors.



Improving your gut health in 3 ways

This is not one of those, sounds easy yet difficult things to do. Trust me. Finding the right balance in your dietary habits, providing a sufficient amount of right nutrients for your gut microbes and taking a probiotic supplement that really works and is backed up by science is doable.

The key lies in breaking it down into smaller steps:

  1. Order your probiotic now (as it takes few days for it to arrive)
  2. Start with breakfast, change that bacon to a smoothie bowl or maybe just start with a fruity snack (for the fruity/veggie beginners)
  3. Gradually increase your good bacteria but providing them with more and more diversity from your diet.

Oh! And one more thing, don’t wait for Monday, START NOW!
