6 Foods to Boost Your Digestive Health

Whether or not you suffer from gut or digestive issues, it is always a great idea to make sure that your “good” bacteria levels are on the up and up! 

1. Yogurt

This is probably the most known source for probiotics, but make sure to get the ones with live and active cultures, not the refined or processed ones. These do not contain the proper probiotics, and are usually filled with added sugars and preservatives.

2. Sauerkraut

Unpasteurized sauerkraut contains vitamins that give your gut health an added boost. Steer clear of the unpasteurized version, as these do not contain the needed good bacteria.

3. Miso Soup

Despite the name, it is actually a very popular breakfast food in Japan. Don’t worry, you won’t need to go all the way over there to get some, as it is commonly found everywhere in the western world. The contain loads of good probiotics, and are very high in B vitamins. Plus, it is very low in calories.

4. Sourdough Bread

Sourdough bread is packed full of probiotics, so add a slice of good strong cheese on there and you have yourself a probiotic boosting snack!

5. Sour Pickles

Make sure they are the naturally fermented sort, and not the ones pickled in vinegar. The ones in sea salt and water are a better option.

6. Tempeh

Tempeh is made from fermented soybeans, and can be used as a great, natural, replacement for antibiotics! It can be used as a meat replacement in dishes, and it is very high in protein.

Probiotic Supplements

Aside from being found in foods, probiotics come in supplements in capsule, tablet, powder, and liquid forms. Although they don’t provide the extra nutrition that foods can offer, they can be convenient. The Manna GUT Support not just contains essential probiotics, but it also contains essential digestive enzymes and Glutamine, which is of the utmost importance to repair the inside lining of the digestive tract.
