Eat your way to a healthier gut!
Having gut problems? Try incorporating some of these berries into your diet and you might find an improvement in your gut health!
Blueberries are rich in antioxidants and packed with nutrients — such as Vitamin C and K. Vitamin C can boost your immunity and help improve your overall immune system. Vitamin K on the other hand can help improve bone health, heart health and cognitive health.
While they are also low in calories (bonus), blueberries are a prebiotic — meaning they provide support for healthy digestion and help fight inflammation.
Raspberries are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant polyphenols called ellagitannins, which help reduce oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body.
Not only that, raspberries can help prevent constipation and maintain a healthy digestive tract, promoting healthy bowel movements.
Blackberries are high in Vitamin C, antioxidants and fibre — all essentials when it comes to maintaining a healthy gut.
Studies show that blackberries contain anti-inflammatory properties which can help reduce stomach ulcers and other gastric issues.
Don’t let their size fool you. Not only are red currants great for your skin (winning), they too are great for promoting a healthy gut. Packed with fibre, they aid with digestion and scrape cholesterol out of the arteries and blood vessels.
