Improve Your Gut Health With These Foods

The importance of gut health cannot be overstated because of how big of a role it plays in your overall health and well-being. It even influences your serotonin production – 90% of that “feel good” hormone is produced in the gut.

Did you know 70% of your immune system is found in the gut as well? It’s where a lot of the good and bad bacteria live in your body, so it’s extremely important to make sure you’re treating your gut well and making sure it has all of the good foods it needs to thrive.

This probiotic powerhouse and German staple is also high in B vitamins and helps with the absorption of iron. To make sure you’re getting the most of your sauerkraut, it’s best to buy the freshly fermented kind you might find in your local health food store.

It’s a great addition to your meals as it helps to crowd out the bad bacteria and supercharges your gut with healthy live bacteria and microorganisms that can boost your overall health. We find that it’s best on hotdogs, but we encourage you to find what best works for you.
