Best Foods for a Healthy Gut and Microbiome

Written By Rachael Alexander

Hey there, fabulous Mosaic Souls! As a professional woman or man juggling a hectic lifestyle, taking care of your gut health is paramount. Your gut isn’t just about digestion—it’s the cornerstone of your overall health. Keeping those good bacteria in your gut thriving is essential, not only to break down the food you eat but also to absorb nutrients and eliminate toxins. Neglecting your gut health can lead to issues like bloating, inflammation, acne, diabetes, poor sleep, and obesity. Let’s ensure you’re radiating health from the inside out with these gut-loving foods.

Mangoes

Mangoes aren’t just delicious—they’re a powerhouse for your gut. They help maintain good bacteria, reduce body fat, and keep blood sugar levels in check. Snack on a juicy mango to keep your gut flora happy.

Bananas

We’ve all heard that bananas are great for an upset stomach, and it’s true! Packed with potassium and magnesium, bananas reduce inflammation and promote harmony among your gut microbes. Keep them on hand for a quick, gut-friendly snack.

Apple Cider Vinegar

This miracle liquid is a staple in many health routines for a reason. Apple cider vinegar is loaded with probiotics and amino acids that relieve acid reflux and soothe irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). A little in your morning routine can go a long way.

Sauerkraut

Naturally fermented sauerkraut is a superstar for gut health. It helps crowd out bad bacteria while nurturing the good ones, and it’s particularly effective in reducing IBS symptoms. Add a scoop to your meals for an easy gut boost.

Broccoli

Broccoli is more than just a side dish—it’s packed with sulfur-containing compounds that reduce gut inflammation and lower the risk of various cancers. Make it a regular part of your diet for its myriad health benefits.

Miso

This fermented, plant-based food is a gut health champion. Miso not only improves mineral absorption but also boosts the health of your intestinal cells. A warm bowl of miso soup is both comforting and beneficial.

Beans

Beans are fantastic for promoting good gut bacteria and your overall well-being. According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, beans are a versatile and nutritious addition to your diet.

Kombucha

This trendy drink is more than just a fad—kombucha is rich in probiotics that enhance your digestive system, prevent gut inflammation, and improve digestion. Personally it doesn’t sit well with me, however many people boast of it’s beneficial effects for their digestion. Sip on kombucha for a refreshing, gut-friendly beverage.

Yogurt

Yogurt is well-known for its beneficial probiotics. It helps kill harmful bacteria and fungi while repairing the gut. A daily serving of yogurt can do wonders for your gut health.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a source of fatty acids that are antiviral, antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal. These properties help restore your stomach’s acidity levels and keep your gut healthy.

Wild Salmon

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, wild salmon promotes gut health with its anti-inflammatory properties. Incorporate this nutrient-dense fish into your meals to support a healthy gut.

Garlic

Garlic is a natural prebiotic that feeds the good bacteria in your gut, keeping it healthy and balanced. Not only is it a flavor adding food but it helps fend off harmful bacteria and boost your immune system. Add garlic to your dishes to enhance flavor and gut health simultaneously.

Chocolate

Yes, you read that right—chocolate! Dark chocolate, in particular, is rich in prebiotic and probiotic fiber, nourishing your gut’s existing microbes and promoting good gut health. Enjoy in moderation for a guilt-free treat.

High-Fiber Foods

Foods high in fiber, such as artichokes, green peas, lentils, black and lima beans, almonds, raspberries, and apples, help move food through your body efficiently and prevent digestive issues. Make fiber-rich foods a staple in your diet for optimal gut health.

The food you eat has a profound impact on your gut and overall health. Choosing foods that promote good gut health is a smart move for your well-being. Incorporate these powerhouse foods into your daily diet and watch your gut—and your health—transform. Stay vibrant and healthy, Mosaic Souls!
