Time to spill the beans on that cool side effect to a regular health and fitness routine that I teased at the end of yesterdays email.
Now it’s obvious that the fitter you are, the better you feel about yourself.
That’s the result of the feel good hormones that get released by your brain when you get active and do some workouts.
But there’s also another hidden benefit that rarely gets discussed.
Well, it’s becoming more prominent these days as we all become more aware of the link but it’s worth stating here in case you weren’t aware.
This new research has found a link between your activity levels and your gut health.
I’m sure you’re aware that gut health is a bit of a buzz thing these days.
There’s a school of thought that your overall health is determined by the make up of your gut.
All the little good bacteria vs the bad stuff.
And who wins effects your overall health.
Gotta say that I buy into it.
There’s a lot of sense in this.
The doco that I saw recently – The Gut Movie, painted a really interesting insight into how easy it is to improve your gut makeup in a short space of time.
We knew from previous research that gut health can effect your mental health so it would lead you to think that it would have the same correlation on your exercise and fitness levels too.
The healthier you are overall, the better your gut health will be. And vice versa.
So how can you improve yours?
Well the only real way to know for sure is to to a ‘poo test’ to be blunt.
Where you have a stool sample tested and then re-test down the track after you change a few habits.
But if you don’t want to go that far,
(and I don’t think I am ready for that yet!)
the next best thing is to do stuff that will naturally improve it anyways – stuff like bone broth, fermented foods like sauerkraut and the like and kombucha all can help.
You don’t even have to turn into a hipster and grow a long beard to do it.
If I can, you can!
As well as eating a pretty decent diet and minimising the toxins you put in your body.
Of course you don’t have to live like a nun but like I said = the key word is minimising.
Interesting, or more so encouraging findings wouldn’t you agree?
