The gut is important not just for digestive health, but for the body as a whole. It helps the body with energy, metabolism, vitality, and making sure our immune system stays strong. If your gut isn’t healthy, it can make you more likely to bloat, have gas, constipation, and cause your energy to crash throughout the day. Follow these five tips for maintaining a healthy gut!

Sarah Marlette, Gut Health Tips,

1- Remove

Removing common allergens like gluten, dairy, and sugar from your diet can help reduce inflammation in the gut and create more diversity bacteria in the gut. There are many alternatives to dairy and gluten like coconut flour and oat milk that can make the substitution much easier.

Incorporate more whole foods like fruits and vegetables into your diet to give your gut a boost. Start by making small changes to incorporate more vegetables like carrots, zucchinis, and squash so your body can get used to them more and avoid bloating. If you’re used to eating a lot of processed foods, start to make these changes slowly to avoid being overwhelmed.

3- Repopulate

Use probiotics to help boost the immune system, digestion, and prevent disease. Probiotics come in the form of a supplement but are also common in foods like yogurt and Kefir. The gut has good and bad bacteria and probiotics allow the good bacteria to be replenished by adding more good bacteria to the digestive system.


Antioxidants help protect the gut lining from damage like bacteria and can help reduce inflammation. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts can be great antioxidants to help replenish and protect the gut.


Stress plays a huge role in our overall health including our gut health. The gut and brain are connected through nerves so the more stressed out we are the more likely our gut is going to be inflamed. Exercises like yoga and meditation can be great for rebalancing and reducing stress.

Maintaining a healthy gut is important for living a healthier lifestyle and following the 5 R’s is a great way to reset your gut health. By following these five tips for maintaining a healthy gut, your digestive health will improve creating a better life.
