  • Unintentional weight loss or sudden weight gain: If you are losing or gaining weight without making any changes to your diet or exercise routine then there are chances that your gut is screaming for help.
  • Skin Condition: If you are suffering from skin rashes or itchy skin it may be because of poor gut health.

How to improve gut health?

There are certain foods that can make your gut feel great so next time you go grocery shopping make sure that you get these food items to boost your gut health.

  • Fermented food: Fermented food contains gut friendly bacteria known as probiotics. Some examples of food rich in probiotics are yogurt, kombucha, kimchi etc.
  • Include more veggies & fruits: Make sure that you include a wide range of fruits and vegetables in your diet including bananas, asparagus, garlic etc. that are an excellent source of prebiotics.
