Hi loves! It’s been a while since I popped in on here to share some tips & tricks with you. I’ve been having more fun sharing on the podcast (you can listen to that here) butttt I also love connecting with you all in this way so I’m BACK!
I’ve been going through a lot of shifts & growth & transformation, and with that I’ve had to move through a lot of really painful, sad emotions. When my mood is all over the place and I’m trying to get myself out of a funk, It’s really important that I support my gut health. I’ve been slowing down and taking the time to put myself and my health first, and I wanted to share with you my top tips & tricks to caring for my gut.
- Taking vitamin D and spending lots of time outside in the sun- Vitamin D has been proven to increase the overall diversity of the gut microbiome and also has been shown to regulate mood/decrease symptoms of depression. Being outside in the sun is my favorite way to increase my levels of Vitamin D, but unfortunately, most of us have trouble absorbing enough vitamin D from the sun itself. This is why I also recommend supplementing with Vitamin D in addition to spending time in the sun
- Slowing down and reconnecting with my breathe and my body- Too much stress can wreak havoc on your gut health, which is why it’s so important to slow down and regulate your nervous system to protect your gut health.
- Eating probiotic rich foods- Some of my favorites are kombucha, yogurt, and anything pickled/fermented!
- Taking a high-quality probiotic supplement- I’m always on the lookout for high-quality probiotics and lately I’ve been loving Kyo-Dophilus Pro+ Synbiotic. They don’t have to be refrigerated, so it’s super easy to take with you anywhere you go, and they come in yummy chewable tablets that contain a specialty selected prebiotic and a community of nine probiotic strains. Synbiotic is a term used for probiotics & prebiotics which are combined to provide a synergistic beneficial effect in the microbiome. The three biocompatible human strains in all Kyo-Dophilus products, called The Friendly Trio, have been the subject of clinical studies that have documented the efficacy of these strains to support a healthy microbiome. They are tasty, easy to travel with, and actually work! <3
I hope this was helpful and that next time you’re wanting to show your gut some love, you can lean on these tools
Sending you all my love,
