TIPS AND TRICKSThe Importance of Your Gut Health

Guts. It’s something all of us have inside of our bodies. Its system helps support how we live each day and how we break down the foods we all eat. Although it is an important function of our everyday lives, our gut goes beyond just our stomach. With the launch of our new, Simply Delish specialty Jel flavor, Black Cherry, we want to remind you how important your gut health is and how our new Jel flavor of Black Cherry is beneficial for you and your gut health. 

What is gut health?

So far, you’ve heard the words gut health a few times. So, what exactly is gut health? Gut health is described as the different parts of the gastrointestinal tract. These different parts are made up of the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. These different parts of our body help us break down the different foods we eat and helps the balance of “good bacteria” in our body without the feeling of discomfort after eating different foods. However, that’s not the same for everyone and everyone’s gut health. Alone, there’s an estimated 70 million in the U.S with digestive disease issues that can cause discomfort. These different digestive causes can cause different symptoms such as heartburn, constipation, bloating, vomiting, and loose stools. 

Paying attention to your gut health

Imagine you just ate a delicious bowl of Simply Delish pudding as an after-dinner dessert. As soon as it hits your esophagus, your body starts to break down that pudding. Once it travels to your gut, the pudding breaks down into a simple form which then enters your bloodstream and gives your body nutrients. The formula to a healthy gut contains good bacteria and immune cells which helps break down foods, and ward off any infections or viruses. However, if your body is responding negatively and you’re feeling different symptoms such as heartburn, constipation, bloating, vomiting, and loose stools, that may be a sign of poor gut health.  

How to help with gut health

Everyone’s guts and gut health are different. Finding the right balance of what works for you and your body is important in finding a comfortable medium. Nonetheless, there are different things you can do to help your gut and your overall gut health. First, sleep is very important for your gut and how you feel after an adequate night of sleep. Have you ever felt unwell after a night of tossing and turning, with only a little sleep? Having a bad night of sleep can cause bloating and nausea, so getting those solid eight hours is beneficial for you and your body. The second factor of good gut health is exercise. Keeping a solid exercise routine can help your digestive system and is known to help reduce stress, but ultimately helps maintain healthy body weight. Maintaining a healthy body weight will have a great effect on your gut health and how you feel. Finally, and the most important factor is what you eat and what you put into your body. Avoiding certain foods such as fried foods, and artificially flavored and colored foods, and certain liquids such as alcohol. However, sticking to a diet with fresh foods, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and foods with probiotics is helpful.

What are probiotics?

Probiotics. You may have heard of them before but not sure exactly what they are. You can find probiotics in different fermented foods, yogurt, beauty supplements, and Simply Delish Black Cherry Jel! Probiotics are made up of live microorganisms that function as aids to help you digest different foods, destroy disease-causing cells, and provides your body by providing you with vitamins.
