If you’re struggling with IBS symptoms or generally want to improve your gut health, a balanced diet is key. Unsure where to start? We’ve got together some of the most important parts of a gut-friendly diet, to help you reduce bloating, abdominal pain or other symptoms of IBS.

Eat a wide range of foods

A wide range of plant-based foods is vital for cultivating and maintaining a well-functioning gut. Consuming a variety of vegetables and fruits, such as broccoli, bananas and spinach, helps to make your gut microbiome more diverse, meaning your gut can function much more efficiently. If you want to get the best out of your diet, avoiding heavily processed foods, with very limited nutrition, should be at the top of your list. Aim for 30 different types of plant-based foods per week, which can include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans and more.

Plenty of fibre

Fibre is a vital component of any well-balanced diet and is essential for the day to day functioning of your gut. Unfortunately, many people struggle to get enough fibre into their daily diet, which in turn disrupts the digestive process. In fact, it has been reported that 90% of the UK’s adult population are not getting the right amount of fibre in their diets. Fortunately, there are many delicious foods that contain fibre, including beans, whole grains and dried fruits.

Include fermented foods and probiotics

Fermented foods contain live bacteria that can bolster and improve the microbiome within your gut, a vital part of the digestive process. For instance, live yoghurt, kimchi and sauerkraut can all play a vital role in providing your gut with the good bacteria it needs to thrive. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that have been proven to have a specific health benefit. Along with improved digestion, some probiotics could also boost your immunity by reducing the severity of colds and flu.

Supplement your diet with Sons Gut Health

It’s not just foods containing healthy microbes that can help in diversifying your microbiome and strengthen your gut. Our Gut Health supplement contains a live bacterial strain called LP299V®, which binds to cells in your gut wall, encouraging the lining to strengthen the layer of mucus. This then fortifies the gut wall and shields your gut from any bad bacteria that could disrupt your gut health. Coming in capsule form and taken once a day, our gut supplement couldn’t be easier to consume either. Remember - in order to get the best results, consistency is vital. We suggest combining your daily consumption with other parts of your daily routine so you never skip a day.

A gut health diet doesn’t have to be complicated. With plenty of vegetables, diet diversity and fibre, you can fortify your gut and reduce those painful IBS symptoms. Alongside your diet, supplements such as Sons Gut Health are the perfect way to provide your gut with the live bacteria it needs to flourish. Take a look through our supplement range today.
