    4 Ways to Reduce Gut Inflammation

    Scientists have estimated that about 70% of the immune system lives in the gut microbiome. The function of the immune system is to protect us from invaders—to tell apart the cells of our own body from other cells that don’t belong to us.

    Ultimately, inflammation that stems from continuous immune attacks can decrease your ability to absorb the nutrients you need. The inflammation disables the gut microbiome so that it can’t effectively run your metabolism. When that happens, it affects digestive health. This state of being out of balance is called dysbiosis.

    Other signs of problems with the microbiome are less obviously related to the gut. People may experience:

    • Brain fog or inability to focus
    • Joint pain
    • Headaches
    • Skin rashes

    1. Eat Probiotic Foods

    • Yogurt and kefir with live and active cultures—choose low- or no-sugar varieties (sugar impairs healthy bacteria)
    • Fermented pickles
    • Sauerkraut
    • Kimchi
    • Kombucha
    • Apple cider vinegar

    2. Add Prebiotic Foods

    • Flax seeds
    • Chia seeds
    • Legumes (lentils, peas, chickpeas, and beans)
    • Whole grains, such as oats
    • Vegetables such as asparagus, artichokes, garlic, and onions

    3. Stay Active & Exercise

    Exercise and physical activity can help your gut, too, and not only by supporting a healthy weight. “We’ve seen research that the more active someone is, the more positively it affects the microbiome,” Bard says.

    As with everything, moderation is key. Gentle activities, such as walking, cycling, yoga, or swimming, can keep you moving and improve your overall well-being. 

    4. Supplement a Gentle Cleanse
