Ever wonder why you get a “gut feeling” when something isn’t right? That’s because our gut and minds are connected! The digestive system is the cornerstone of our well-being. To feel great, there are important actions to take, starting with a healthy diet.
High-fiber foods such as fruits, veggies, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains encourage the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Additionally, SCFAs reduce the risk of inflammatory diseases like depression (healthline.com).
NoBull’s veggie burgers are a good source of fiber with grains, seeds, and vegetables being the main ingredients in all of our flavors. These ingredients are easy for our bodies to process and can greatly reduce inflammation in our stomachs.
Prebiotics are specialized plant fibers that act as essential food sources for the healthy bacteria living in your gut. Eating a combination of probiotic and prebiotic foods will stimulate the growth of preexisting bacteria in your stomach, so it is important to find ways to integrate them into your everyday diet. Studies show that a diet with lots of prebiotic fibers significantly reduces stress levels throughout the body (healthline.com). Whole grains, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables all contain prebiotic fibers and are essential for any healthy diet that supports the microbiome.
With time and a bit of discipline, you can bring your gut to optimal health, just by eating right and nourishing your body with sleep and exercise. Remember that when you remove harmful foods from your diet, you must replace them with foods that are going to replenish and restore your body, like NoBull Burgers!
