by Alex Heining on Oct 10, 2022
Your gut health can drastically impact health issues for the rest of your body down the road.
However, it may not feel like something that just changes overnight. Unfortunately, it takes a bit of commitment and focus to keep your gut health in check and reduce inflammation. Luckily, these additions aren’t hard to implement and can quickly start changing your gut health for the better. Here are some tips to get started from our team at Troomy Nootropics.
Is My Gut Healthy Today?
It may seem hard to figure out, huh? Luckily, there are some tell-tale signs your gut is in good shape, and other signs that it may be in trouble. Here are some of the most common places where your gut could be at risk.
Losing Concentration Over Pain
Struggling to focus with your stomach always rumbling, having cramp pains, and other uneasiness? This could have a lot to do with your diet, the frequency in which you eat, and other factors that all impact your gut health. Take into account how often it’s so distracting that you can’t even focus on the task at hand.
If you constantly find yourself waking up in the middle of the night over gut pains, you may have deeper underlying issues. This can root in symptoms like:
- Bloated stomach
- Cramp pains
- Intestinal strain
Keep your body on track with healthy sleep by keeping your gut healthy. If you have more advanced symptoms and are worried about other risks, visit you may want to schedule a visit with your doctor.
Illness, Infections That Don’t Clear Up
The frequency of illness and infections aren’t uncommon for people with poor gut health. What you really want to be mindful of is how quickly they clear up. Say you’re having infection-related pains for a few days, go to your doctor, and are given antibiotics. Then, if it still takes a substantial amount of time for that infection to clear up, the root of the infection may not just be a random thing. It could be a systemic shift you need to make in your diet, exercise, or associated health choices.
Here are a few places to get started.
Factors in Your Gut Health
Stress impacts your whole body, and is a huge factor in your gut health. Worry and stress will keep your gut area inflamed and feeling worse and worse over time. Take time to find a stress reliever that fits your needs best and can release built-up tension. A great place to start is exercise.
Starting more frequent exercise or getting on some kind of fitness regimen is a great starting point for improved gut health. Although, this doesn’t need to be anything major. Even just adding in an extra walk or two every week can be vital to your health.
Fibers are essential in your diet. Luckily, you can easily add a bit more of them into your diet without drastically changing your meal planning. For example, throwing in a cereal that’s high in fiber is a far better option for your gut health than high-sugar cereals. This acts as a double positive since you reduce sugar and also find a healthy alternative that boosts fiber. Additionally, working beans, vegetables, and more into your diet will keep your fiber levels higher on average, reducing your risk of gut complications and other sicknesses.
Couldn’t be more pivotal to what you get out of every day. You have to find a way to get your eight glasses of water in every day, or more if you are training in high-performance work, athletics, or other highly-strenuous activity. Hydration impacts:
- Disease and sickness risk
Tracking your hydration is a great place to start. Whether this is grabbing a friend and starting to keep each other accountable for hydration, investing in a larger water bottle, or just setting reminders for yourself, your gut health is a lot easier to improve when it’s well-hydrated.
Inflammation is what most of these habits aim to reduce. While you can start implementing these great habits into your routine over time, it’s easier to get some quick relief to jump-start that growth. Some inflammation reducers to start with are:
- Vegetables, mostly darker greens
- Berries (black and blueberries, preferably)
Most of these you can incorporate fairly easily into your diet. Add a few fruit parfaits here and there, add a salad or two to the weekly diet, and you’re in much better shape. However, mushrooms can be a bit more strategic.
Natural Superfoods and Mushroom Benefits
Functional mushrooms (or medicinal mushrooms) are actually considered superfoods. These are nutrient-rich, vitamin-packed additions to any diet. You can start cooking with them as a foundation, but there are also easily accessible supplement routes to go as well that can instantly boost your gut health.
Mushroom Gummies in Nootropics
With mushroom gummies, you can get all those benefits from organic mushrooms without the added prep time and expensive ingredients. Simply in powder form or gummies themselves, get that blast of energy, improved memory, and elevated focus without even opening up a kitchen drawer.
Additionally, these can be strategically crafted to target different needs as well. For example, if you’re looking for a blend that just helps with your gut health, you can absolutely find blends that are linked to those benefits. On the other hand, if anxiety is what’s impacting your gut health most, you can also target your nerves with anxiety-reducing mushroom gummies as well. These opportunities open the door for a much greater variety of benefits with wallet-friendly, accessible solutions.
