The supplement industry is packed-to-the-gills with supposed magic fairy dust that claims to clean up your gut and digestive system. 

But that fairy dust may cost you an arm and a leg (and you’ll have no proof if it worked or not)

Here’s my 4 ways to improve your gut health to increase your metabolism, improve your digestive function and decrease inflammation that may cause chronic disease.

1. Eat More Fermented Foods


Fermented foods convert sugar in your digestive system into acids and sugar alcohols which is easier for your body to utilize as energy.

Try out some kefir, kimchi, the ever popular sauerkraut, kombucha or tempeh in your diet. This will increase the amount of good bacteria in your gut!.

2. Follow the dentists orders

We all know keeping our teeth and gums clear is important for oral hygiene but did you know…

…keeping your teeth clean (via regular brushing and flossing) is paramount in keeping bacteria from your mouth out of your digestive tract?

Facts… Brush and Floss multiple times a day for a healthy gut!


3. Poly-whatnows?

Become familiar with the work POLYPHENOLS.

These are plant based molecules that fuel the microbes in your intestines which have anti-inflammatory properties and can decrease high blood pressure and cholesterol.

Take in some more polyphenols by eating more

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Red Grapes and wine made from red grapes
  • Almonds 
  • Onions 
  • Green Tea 
  • Broccoli 
  • Blueberries


  1. Avoid artificial sweeteners

Research has found that the regular consumption or artificial sweeteners can decrease your good gut bacteria by as much as 50%!

This makes what you do have available work at 2x capacity which slows down digestion and can result in chronic fatigue and anxiety.

Try limiting the intake of aspartame, sucralose, acesulfame k & saccharin amongst others.
