Out of all the supplements out there, which ones are the right ones for your gut? In this article, I share with you the three types of supplements that you should look into.
You cannot solely rely on supplements and you really have to be eating healthy. This is a key part of understanding how you can take better care of your overall health.
In today’s world, even Whole Foods that we are eating, are not enough nutrient-dense. This is due to over farming per example. So it is therefore important to know that your gut isn’t getting its daily need by only the food you eat.
Here are the 3 types of supplements you must consider:
- A gut cleanser
Let’s take a look at them individually.
This will restore your guy’s healthy balance by killing all the bad bacteria. It is live microorganisms that may help prevent and treat some illnesses. Probiotics are the healthy, good bacteria that you need in your gut. Probiotics can be found in fermented foods, including yogurt and sauerkraut.
This will help for all the new and healthy bacteria to grow faster and live longer in your gut. It is literally food for probiotics in the form of fiber. It is to support the gut and by creating an environment where microorganisms can flourish. Prebiotics are found in fiber-rich food such as fruits and vegetables.
A gut cleanser
All these bad bacteria are now broken down (thanks to prebiotics and probiotics), but it still needs to be removed from your system. A gut cleanser is a way of removing waste and toxins from your Colin. It assists in weight loss, better digestion, clear thinking, and increased energy.
There are thousands of options for supplements and I highly recommend you do some further research. The best step is to check out every ingredient yourself before purchasing anything.
Here are 6 supplements for gut health:

I love that this company is focused on having a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet. And this product dissolves easily in your favorite beverage or for example soup/yogurt.
- L-Glutamine (
Glutamine is the survival package as it provides fuel for your immune cells and supports your intestines. It strengthens our immune system right away. This one is without any additives inside and specifically, helps hydrate your muscle cells & immune system response.

It is known to assist in promoting a healthy cardiovascular system. Mix beetroot powder into smoothies, juice or water.
- Digestive Enzymes
Helps your gut to breakdown food and relieve symptoms such as bloating, constipation, etc. Most of them are plant-based and assists in nutrient absorption and aiding digestion. Many products are completely vegan and free from any non-natural elements. It can help you with easing occasional gas, bloating and constipation.
Supplements are something that can be quite tricky to choose. And I can only recommend that you do your research, read reviews, understand all the ingredients inside, and check with your doctor first.
And again, supplements are exactly what the word indicates: a supplement to an already healthy and well-balanced diet.
