Do You Have Gut Issues? Three Supplements to Support Digestive Health

If you're experiencing bloating, constipation, skin irritation, upset stomach, weight change or food intolerances, there are high chances that your gut is not the healthiest right now. These are some of the signs of an unhealthy gut, which affect our body not only internally but also externally.

There are many natural supplements and foods that you can add to your daily routine to help improve your gut health. These include green foods such as vegetables and fruits, fibre supplements as well as digestion supplements.

Here, we are going to discuss 3 supplements that will support a healthier digestive system:

Probiotics

These living microorganisms can be consumed through fermented foods as well as supplements. Many studies have shown that a balance or imbalance of bacteria in the gut can lead to many health issues and diseases. Probiotics help to balance the friendly bacteria in the digestive system, which can help to restore the natural balance of gut bacteria. You can also find probiotics in foods such as tempeh, kimchi, kefir, pickled vegetables, sauerkraut and soy products. To make sure you are getting the most out of your probiotics, you need to make sure you are consuming the adequate amount. Many studies have shown that to benefit from probiotics, you need dosages between 1 billion to 100 billion of live organisms or CFU (colony-forming units).

Greens

Greens supplements are a great way to improve gut health. Most supplements in this category have a combination of various ingredients that will benefit a healthier digestive system. This type of supplement is excellent for people that lack eating a variety of fruit and vegetables. Greens will help to detoxify the body, it also contains lots of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, which is excellent for gut health. Some brands will also add probiotics in its formula giving the body an even better boost. Green supplements can also contain high amounts of polyphenols, which is excellent to boost digestive health. 

Digestive Enzymes

This type of supplement will help the body to break down foods that you eat and turn into energy and nutrients. When you take digestive enzymes supplements, it mixes with the food through digestion. This will then help the body to breakdown carbohydrates, fats and proteins into smaller pieces so it can be easily absorbed. Digestive enzymes can also be obtained through certain foods such as miso, kimchi, ginger, kefir, avocado, bananas, papaya, pineapples and mangoes. If you find you can't get enough of these foods into your diet, a digestive enzyme supplement can be the solution, as it can help promote better digestion and gut health.

The Bottom Line 

Having an unhealthy gut can be very painful and frustrating as you may have to deal with stomach pains, constipation and bloating. Your gut health is essential for many aspects of health, and many studies have found that a disrupted digestive system can lead to many chronic diseases.

Eating a colourful and healthy diet, including a range of fresh whole foods is essential to help your gut to strive. If for some reason you find yourself not having a balanced and nutritious diet and then consequently having gut issues, adding a supplement can be an alternative to it.
