5 foods to supercharge your gut

Stock up on healthy options like the following:

Gut-health

Artichokes: Once in the colon, this ferments into healthy micro flora, which balances the gut.

Bananas: Reduce inflammation of your gut and aid healthy bacteria.

Cruciferous vegetables and leafy greens such as broccoli, kale, cabbage, and cauliflower: These have sulphur-containing metabolites, or glucosinolates, which reduce inflammation and flush out carcinogens.

Blueberries: These tasty treats improve immune function. Because they contain antioxidants, vitamin K and fibre, they help improve and diversify overall  gut bacteria.

Beans: These are packed with protein, fibre, folate, and B vitamins, which regulate a healthy gut. They also release fatty acids that strengthen your intestine cells and help with weight loss.
