We have written a lot on Hello Glow about probiotics and gut health. Even though it’s not the most exciting subject, it’s becoming increasingly important. Almost every week, a new study shows a link between our gut biome and different parts of our health. They help us think more clearly, have beautiful skin, lose weight, and boost our immune systems.

Gut health is very important because the health of your digestive tract is linked to almost every other feature in your body, including your brain and mood, which is a big deal. You can get probiotics from more than just yogurt, fermented foods, and kefir. There are numerous other methods to keep your gut healthy.

Prebiotics, different from probiotics, are foods that directly feed good gut bacteria. This keeps them alive and powerful in your digestive tract, so you don’t need to constantly take those probiotics! Plant foods with a lot of fiber and nutrients, like spinach and other greens, beans, whole grains, apples and other fruits, onions, oats, and many others, give your good gut bacteria what they need to stay happy and healthy.

Cinnamon Berry Smoothie

Cinnamon can help get rid of gas, make digestion easier, and help the body use glucose better. When you mix the healthy fats in plant milk and avocado with the fiber in greens, berries, and avocado, you get a creamy, delicious smoothie that is easy on your digestive tract and good for your microbiome.

In this creamy smoothie, the berries go well with the vanilla and cinnamon.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups dairy-free plant milk
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 cup kale
  • 1 cup frozen berries
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5 drops vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions

Combine the ingredients in a mixer until they are smooth.

Berry Flax Smoothie

Flax has been used for a long period to treat constipation and improve heart and digestive health since it is high in fiber and omega-3. Berries and spinach add more fiber and a lot of prebiotic nutrients, and ginger helps settle the stomach. The body can’t break down entire flax seeds, so use ground flax to absorb the nutrients.

If you’d rather use flax oil instead of the seeds, you can drizzle a little at the finish of blending. Ginger calms the stomach, and flax seeds contain fiber and healthy omega-3s.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups dairy-free plant milk
  • ½ cup frozen or fresh berries
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon peeled ginger root

Instructions

Put everything into a blender. Mix until it’s smooth.

Benefits Of Green Smoothies

A green smoothie is exactly what it sounds like: it’s green, usually because the recipe calls for a leafy green. Even though the idea of drinking spinach may not sound appealing, most green smoothie recipes also include whole fruits and vegetables to enhance the flavor and give the smoothie even more health benefits.

Green smoothies are especially good for your gut health because they are made with dark leafy vegetables that make them look green. Dark leafy greens are spinach, and kale is high in fiber, which works to help clean out your gut and makes you feel full for longer.

But the best thing about dark leafy greens is sulfoquinovose or SQ. This is a type of carbohydrate a certain good gut bacteria love. This carbohydrate has sulfur, and when it combines with the sugar molecule, it makes one of the best foods for your healthy gut bacteria. Gut bacteria that are fed well make more gut bacteria.

The more great gut bacteria you have, the less room there is for bad gut bacteria. Dark leafy greens also have a lot of iron, vitamins C, K, and A, and folate, which are excellent for your gut health and other important body systems. The power of a green smoothie can’t be overstated when you think about how many benefits just the dark leafy greens offer.
