– Round out your nutrients with supplements
Omega-3 fatty acids are an important part of your diet and gut health. Some people turn their nose up at fish, while others have dietary restrictions. If that sounds like you, make sure you get the things you need via high-quality supplements. They come from wild-caught fish, but if you’re not eating it for whatever reason, you should find a supplement that ensures you get it. Ask your doctor for a high-quality brand recommendation.
– Start craving coconut
Coconut oil and coconut butter both contain MCT oils that help fight inflammation and can be beneficial in losing weight. These are easy to add to nearly any recipe without changing the flavor, so make these a part of your daily routine as often as possible.
– Get rid of bad fats
While good fats help your gut health, the bad fats are doing harm. Ditch the vegetable oils high in Omega-6 fatty acids, and swap them out for the good stuff with coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil. This simple switch reaps noticeable benefits.
– Make more room for fiber
Fiber makes you feel fuller longer, and also gives your gut prebiotics, which helps feed that good bacteria. Go for more nuts and seeds, and you’ll be on the right path.
– Fall in love with fermented foods
Kimchi is a tradtional dish made of spicy, fermented cabbage that frequently accompanies many meals in the Korean cuisine. If you can’t stand the spice, go for sauerkraut, miso, or tempeh to help get your good bacteria in your gut multiplying.
