Which superfoods are good for gut health?

Inside our gut, there are trillions of microorganisms collectively called the gut microbiome. These trillions of microbes provide health-promoting functions to our body but in return, they need nourishing.

Superfoods are a great way to nourish the gut microbiome as they are packed full of vitamins and nutrients, which help a large array of microorganisms survive.

Turmeric

Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory spice, indeed one study concluded that turmeric’s “unique anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities and ability to modulate gut microbiota make it a potentially useful addition to our collection of treatments for IBS.”

Our mouth-watering blend of freshly squeezed Apple, Ginger and Turmeric juice  is an easy way to consume turmeric. Known to ease digestive issues, this fresh zingy juice can be enjoyed any time of the day.

Wheatgrass juice

Rich in chlorophyll, wheatgrass juice is a real nutritional powerhouse. It contains a cocktail of nutrients we need to stay healthy, including iron, magnesium, amino acids, phytonutrients and vitamins A, B, C, E and K. Why not see what a difference our outdoor grown, freshly frozen, organic, field-grown wheatgrass juice can make to your digestive health?

Banana

The original superfood, complete with its own packaging, bananas are full of the kind of fibre that good bacteria enjoy.

Garlic

With its antibacterial and antifungal properties, garlic can help control “bad” gut bacteria and help balance yeast in the gut.

The properties within garlic act as a fuel source to allow the bacteria to do their job better which overall improves gut function. 

Sauerkraut

This fermented cabbage is a great source of probiotics, fibre and vitamins. Easy to make at home, is a great gut staple.

Ginger

Known for easing nausea and settling stomachs, fresh ginger can help in the production of stomach acid which in turn helps with digestion.

Studies have shown that ginger is a great complementary therapy for nausea caused by chemotherapy.

An easy way to consume ginger is in our organic Apple, Ginger and Turmeric juice. Freshly frozen and delivered to your door in convenient one-shot sachets.
