Fall Foods That Are Good For The Gut

Colder weather means sweaters, cozy drinks, and warm, hearty meals. When you’re creating your fall meal plans, you might want to consider adding a few of the seasonal foods to your dishes in order to fill your gut with nutrients!


Apples

The old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” still rings true. Apples are filled with immune-boosting vitamin C and contain 20% of your daily fiber -- especially when you eat the apple skin! Due to these gut-boosting benefits, apples have been known to help with constipation and aid in the proper functioning of intestinal health. 

Pumpkin

We have a whole post detailing the benefits of pumpkin because it’s one of those hidden gut-health gems. Aside from being delicious, pumpkin boost 7G of dietary fiber per cup and contains high levels of zinc and vitamin A. The antioxidants in pumpkin not only aid in digestion but also boost your immune system to keep you safe during cold and flu season. 

Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts had a resurgence in popularity over the past few years. Similar to the foods above, Brussels sprouts are a great source of fiber. Plus, just ½ cup of Brussels sprouts provides 137% of your daily vitamin K requirement. 

Kale

Kale is an excellent source of fiber, as well as nutrients like folate, vitamin C, vitamin K, and vitamin A. It’s important to note that raw kale can be hard on some people’s digestive systems. It’s easier to digest when it’s fully cooked. So avoid juicing or eating raw kale more than two-three times per week.

Cabbage 

Filled with soluble fiber, cabbage has been shown to increase the good bacteria in the gut. Cabbage also aids in chronic inflammation-- a common symptom of IBS. Add cabbage to your salads, tacos, or try sauerkraut in order to receive all the benefits of fermentation too!

Everyone’s bodies and digestive systems work differently. If some of these foods don’t sit well with you, grab for something that fuels YOUR gut. If you’re looking to add more fiber to your diet in addition to these delicious foods, you can try adding prebiotics to your morning water or smoothie! Prebiotics promote daily relief from gas, bloating, and constipation while supporting metabolism and immune function!

Mix vigorously with at least 8 ounces of water of blend into a smoothie. Start by taking ¼ scoop and gradually increase the dose as tolerated.

Take only as directed. Consume immediately after mixing with liquid as this product will thicken quickly once mixed. If not taken with adequate amounts of fluid, this product may swell in the throat, causing blockage or choking. Avoid use if you have ever had esophageal narrowing or swallowing difficulties. Consult a Healthcare practitioner if pregnant or nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place after opening.

Q. How long will this bottle last?

A. Each bottle has 30 full servings. However, if you're new to taking prebiotics, we suggest starting with about a quarter serving and working your way up slowly until you can tolerate a full scoop. So depending on your tolerance each bottle should last one month or longer.

Q. How does it taste?

A. This product is unflavored.

Q. Does this come in capsule form?

A. No, only powder form.

Q. Will this product dissolve in hot liquids?

A. The product will dissolve in liquids. However, we don't advise mixing it with a warm beverage because there is evidence that heat will degrade the resistant starch properties.
