Hello Communitea! Let's talk about something that's often overlooked but oh-so-important...gut health! Yep, that's right, the health of your digestive system can have a big impact on everything from your weight to the clarity of your skin and so much more.

It may seem overwhelming to improve gut health (like needing to do a huge diet over hall to see changes) but really it doesn't have to be that complicated!

In fact there are many small changes you can make to ease your way into a better gut microbiome and improve your body's well being. We want to make this as simple and straight-forward for you as possible, so we've put together five quick and easy tricks to get you started on the path to a happier gut and a healthier you!


  1. Load Up on Fiber: Fiber is like the superhero of gut health. It helps keep things moving smoothly through your digestive system and feeds the good bacteria in your gut. So, make sure to include plenty of fiber-rich foods in your diet, like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. Your gut will thank you! 

  2. Probiotics to the Rescue: Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that live in your gut and keep things in balance. You can find them in fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi. Adding a serving of probiotic-rich foods to your daily diet can help promote a healthy gut microbiome and support digestion. In fact, one of our best selling products at Teami is our Gut Love Prebiotic + Probiotic Powder!  

  3. Stay Hydrated: Drinking enough water is crucial for good digestion and overall gut health. It helps keep things moving smoothly through your digestive tract and prevents constipation. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, and remember that herbal teas and water-rich foods like cucumbers and watermelon count toward your hydration goals too! 

  4. Cut Back on Sugar and Processed Foods: Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but sugar and processed foods are not your gut's friends. They can disrupt the balance of bacteria in your gut and contribute to inflammation, bloating, and weight gain. So, try to limit your intake of sugary treats and processed snacks, and opt for whole, unprocessed foods whenever possible. We have tons of tasty recipes to help with cravings here. 

  5. Manage Stress: Believe it or not, your gut and your brain are connected, and stress can wreak havoc on your digestive system. Chronic stress can disrupt the balance of bacteria in your gut and lead to digestive issues like bloating, gas, and diarrhea. So, it's essential to find healthy ways to manage stress, whether it's through exercise, meditation, yoga, or spending time with loved ones. We love to wind down with a calming cup of De-Stress formulated with calcium and magnesium to relax your muscles and relax. 

So, we hope these can help! Remember, small changes can add up to big results, so start incorporating these gut-friendly habits into your daily routine one by one and before you know it you'll be on your way to a happier and healthier you!
