At Jomeis Fine Foods, promoting positive gut health is at the core of everything we do. We have formulated our ranges, such as our Nutritional Lattes, with that in mind. With this, we have helped people connect with products that have assisted digestion, improved energy levels and helped them feel overall healthier. However, while healthy eating and healthy drinking play a critical role in promoting positive gut health, we're here to uncover the truth; they are not the only elements that contribute to positive gut health. For this reason, to feel your best every day, you need to live a balanced life.
Here's how you can do it:
Get plenty of exercise
Exercise is known to reduce inflammation in the body and can also promote the growth of bacteria which can improve the gut's lining. Above this, reducing inflammation is critical for giving your body the energy and capacity to absorb as many nutrients from food as possible.
Essentially, this means that if you are eating well, but not exercising, there may be chances that you aren't absorbing all of the critical nutrients you need to live your best each day. At Jomeis Fine Foods, we always recommend trying to get at least 30 minutes of exercise each day, even if it's just a light walk. This can promote the anti-inflammatory and healthy bacteria production that you need to ensure your gut always gets the nutrients from food that you intended it to.
Getting enough exercise every day will ensure that you optimise your gut health. But, it's important to remember that every little little change counts. Implementing even one day of exercise into your weekly routine can make a monumental difference in how your body absorbs nutrients.
Sleep is the period our body is allowed to heal and repair the most. It's why you will see your fingernails grow more overnight, or why you feel better after sleeping off a cold. Recent studies have shown that just two days of irregular sleep can promote the production of harmful bacteria in the gut. This can not only lead to illness, but it may also mean that your body won't be able to absorb the nutrients it needs to help you maintain a healthy weight, feel energised each day and have the mental focus you need to carry out your day-to-day.
It is recommended that you try and get around 8 hours of sleep a night. Maintaining a consistent sleep schedule, where you fall asleep at the same time every night, can also help you to develop a better cadence with your body. In the long term, this can prompt your body to better absorb nutrients from food to promote wellness.
We know what you're thinking. Easier said than done, right? However, learning to limit stress in your life can contribute to better health and well-being overall, particularly in the gut. This is because stress is closely linked to the deterioration of the immune system. Too much stress can, therefore, contribute to increased colds, flu and sick days. With the body in disrepair, the immune system is then put to work fighting off harmful bacteria and viruses, rather than working as it should to absorb energy and nutrients from food. This can consequently lead to a downfall in your gut health.
It's also why so many people can see unhealthy weight gain or loss when they are unwell for prolonged periods. Fortunately, in the short term, this won't have significant repercussions on your gut health. Though, regularly, it can have long-term drastic implications on your gut's microbiome. This may contribute to intolerances or an inability to absorb food the way that your body should.
Gut health is reliant on a healthy lifestyle
At Jomeis Fine Foods, our ranges have all been made with gut health in mind. From our Superfood Breakfast Bowls to our Adaptogenic Honey, you can trust that our range always has your gut health in mind. Though, as we have discussed, gut health isn't just reliant on what you eat. To look and feel your best each day, you must do everything to promote gut wellness.
