How to boost gut health during winter season?

New article is here. Let's learn more about gut health and immune system. Did you know that fall is great time to focus on gut health improvement?

The winter season can be a challenging time for your gut health. The days are shorter, the weather is colder, and there are fewer fresh fruits and vegetables available. This can make it difficult to get the nutrients your gut needs to stay healthy.

At the same time we all know that during winter season there is more bugs going around and therefore we are more prone to being sick.

That is why working on your gut health during fall can be great for your body and let it prepare better for the season of coughs and sneezing.

Nevertheless, you may wonder what gut health has to do with immune system? Let’s dive deeper into this…

The Connection Between a Healthy Gut and Immune System

Your gut is home to trillions of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microorganisms, collectively known as the gut microbiota. These microorganisms play a vital role in your health, including your immune system.

A healthy gut microbiota helps to keep your immune system strong by:

  • Producing beneficial compounds that boost immune function
  • Blocking the growth of harmful bacteria
  • Training immune cells to distinguish between harmful and harmless substances

When the gut microbiota is out of balance, it can lead to inflammation and impaired immune function. This can make you more susceptible to infection and disease.

What to do?

There are many things you can do to improve your gut health, including:

  • Eating a healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains: buckwheat, wholegrain rice, all the veg and fruit to create a rainbow in your plate!
  • Limiting processed foods, sugary drinks, and unhealthy fats:  chips, cookies, pastries, fizzy drinks and so on. We all like a treat every now and then, and this is ok. But having processed foods every day will decrease population of the healthy bugs in your intestine, and we do not want that!
  • Getting regular exercise: choose activity or sport you like and try to do a bit each week. If you enjoy exercise you are more likely to keep going. Find your healthy!
  • Managing stress: find healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga, meditation, or spending time in nature.
  • Taking probiotics and prebiotics: live bacteria yoghurts, fermented foods and lots of veg to feed the good bugs in your tummy!

However, it is also important to tackle any root causes of why your gut got disturbed in the first place. For some, even if they try to follow the advice the symptoms go away temporary. This is where qualified nutritionists can help you reaching sustainable results.
