Importance of Food Rotation for Gut Health
Improve your gut health naturally with a varied diet.
Eating a range of foods daily is an excellent way to boost your gut microbiome naturally.
Food rotation assists with:
- Keeps the good bacteria in your gut healthy by producing vitamins
- Supports the immune system
- Fends off harmful bacteria
Most people can enhance their gut health naturally through food. The more varied the diet as a whole, the more access the gut has to an array of beneficial nutrients
Your gut relies on the right balance of different bacteria to digest your food and to prevent infection and inflammation. Gut health also affects your mental health, weight, blood sugar and liver. So having a healthy gut will lead to a healthier, more balanced you!
