TARMFLORA - GUIDE TILL KROPPENS VIKTIGASTE EKOSYSTEM

Long Read • Gut Health Tips • Gut Health 101

Tarmfloran är ett fantastiskt ekosystem av bakterier och andra mikroorganismer. I den här guiden lär du dig mer om tarmfloran och hur den kan hjälpa både din tarm och kropp att komma i balans.

EMBRACE PLANT DIVERSITY

Eat the rainbow might sound a bit cliched but this helps us to naturally increase our plant diversity which in turn supports a more diverse, heterogenous, and healthier gut microbiome and immune system. Ideally, we want to aim for 30 plants a week. With this in mind consider making up nut & seed mixes that you can sprinkle over soups, salads, cooked vegetables, overnight oats and more. Vegetable boxes are another really easy way to get some natural rotation.

Try this Roasted courgette salad recipe which contains no less than eight plants. 

INCLUDE GUT-IMMUNE NOURISHING FOODS

Such as organic bone broth, fermented foods, all types of mushrooms especially the funkier ones like shiitake as well as pumpkin and sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts, salmon, mackerel, prawns, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, spinach, apples and spices such as turmeric that contain vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, amino acids and types of fibre that all help to support the health of the gut and the immune system. Try making up a stewed apple compote with cinnamon that you can serve alongside breakfast or as a tasty snack. Or why not give this curry a whirl.
