A healthy gut can play a big role in our overall health. The majority of the cells that make up our immune system are found in the gut, and therefore a healthy gut severely reduces the chance of a serious illness. What's more, a healthy gut allows us to properly absorb all of the essential nutrients we gain from eating healthy foods, so if you want to get the best out of what you're eating, a healthy gut is key.

Here are just some of the ways you can keep your gut healthy.

Eat a variety of foods

Foods rich in fibre are essential for keeping your gut healthy, and the more diverse your food intake is the happier your gut will be. Try to eat 30 different plants every week- these can range from whole grain fruits or vegetables like onions, leeks and asparagus to nuts, seeds and pulses.

Avoid too many ultra-processed foods

Too many ultra-processed foods can have a harmful effect on the gut, as they don't provide fibre and other essential nutrients, and can often be high in sugar and other potentially harmful nutrients. Though they're okay in moderation, try to swap out ultra-processed foods for healthier foods to keep your gut healthy.

Eat probiotic superfoods

Exercise regularly

Regular exercise is a great way to get your gut microbiome moving, clearing any potential blockages that could be harmful to your health.

Eat smaller meals

Instead of eating three big meals a day, try having smaller, more frequent meals. This will help prevent your gut from being overwhelmed, and can ease the digestive process.
