How to Keep Your Gut Healthy During the Holidays
Give your gut the gift of health this holiday season by taking prebiotic supplements!
As you join your friends and family to celebrate your holidays with wonderful food and drink, you look forward to a New and even better Year. However, if you already experience gut problems, your challenges are doubled during the rounds of feasts and parties whether for Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa!
Wondering how to keep your digestive system healthy during the holidays? It can be as simple as incorporating more prebiotics into your daily diet — during this time of year and always.
What Are Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are low-calorie plant fibers that dissolve in water. As they dissolve in the body, prebiotics release certain gases that help the body’s healthy bacteria multiply in the gut. This is especially important given that more than 70% of your entire immune system lives in your gut. Keeping your immune system strong is key to helping your body’s natural defense mechanisms remain on your side.
The problem is that most Americans don’t eat enough fibrous foods — and that trend may even worsen during the holiday season. Dr. Gerry Mullin, a gastroenterologist, nutritionist and all-around authority on the gut microbiome, says the holidays don’t have to be stressful1 for people trying to strike a balance between maintaining good gut health and having a good time with holiday food staples. “Enjoy but be sensible — you can make healthy food choices while still enjoying a festive holiday,” he advises.
We suggest “exchanges” of healthy bites for some of the endless treats that tempt you. Try the fruit and veggie trays offered before you go for the decadent desserts. When you do indulge, try taking just one piece of fudge or one cookie, and really taste and enjoy it!
By filling up on the healthy foods offered first, your gut will thank you, and so will your waistline for the New Year…
