Trust Your Gut by Alison Purves


Did you know that your gut plays an important role in supporting your immunity? Your digestive system is where 60 – 70% of the body’s immune cells live, making your gut a kind of home base for fuelling your body’s natural defences.  That’s why it’s important to promote the growth of healthy bacteria and support your digestive system to help keep you feeling at your best.  

Here are a few ways you can help achieve a healthy gut:-


Power your defences with the right diet.  Combine vitamin rich foods with options that promote digestion. Whole grains provide fibre that your body needs to support optimal colon function and fuel the healthy bacteria living in your gut. Leafy greens provide fibre and important vitamins to help your digestive system achieve the right microbiome to support the trillions of organisms that power your immunity.


Taking supplements like a daily probiotic helps ensure your body has ideal levels of healthy bacteria.  You can then take the positive impact of probiotics even further by drinking top-quality Aloe Vera Gel, which aids digestion and promotes nutrient absorption to help ensure your gut gets the right nutrients. Aloe Vera is also a prebiotic, which means it provides the food that probiotics need to maintain optimal levels of healthy bacteria.


High intensity workouts are great, but when it comes to your gut, experts recommend getting some light exercise between your heavier workouts. Taking a long walk or lifting weights at your own pace helps promote blood flow and has a positive impact on your gastro-intestinal tract.


Stress has a way of manifesting itself in your gut.  Find ways to work mindfulness into your routine.  Research shows that getting out in nature can also have a profound impact on your physical and emotional wellbeing.
