Nutrition tips: Juices, Smoothie and Soups for Gut Health

Do you have a sore stomach after eating?

If you're struggling with a bad gut with symptoms including stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation, you know that finding ways to improve your digestion is essential.

We all live busy lives and a little planning can go a long way when it comes to getting your gut back on track.

One simple way in which you can really help reduce your gut symptoms when things just don't feel right is mindful eating and chewing. But many of us think we're "too busy" to focus on chewing long enough to help our digestion work at it's best, then we get upset when our gut signals to us it needs help. 

We know that having a sore stomach can make your life miserable. That’s why we created www.gutwealth.co.uk to help you take control of your digestive health with practical lifestyle and dietary changes you can use to help your gut.

Nutrition for your gut

So how do we beat the bloat before it starts? 

Fresh pressed juices, smoothies and homemade soups are all easy and great ways to make it easier for your gut to digest all the goodness from fruit and vegetables. 

Fresh juice liquid goodness

Help your Gut - liquid goodness! 

We know it's vital for the gut to have a variety of vegetables and fruit every day to help get the nutrients we need for energy and to fight infections.

The thing to look for here is variety - no one recipe will 'fix' your gut. But how do we get all the goodness of vegetables and fruit when we're busy and on to go? 

Most of us simply aren’t getting enough fruits and vegetables into our diets on a daily basis and in their raw from. Vegetable rich juices, smoothies and soups are packed with nutrients and easy to make or buy on the go instead of reaching for convenience or fast food. 

The best part is that they can be 100% natural – no chemicals or additives – so there’s nothing artificial for your body to process through its systems. Just pure goodness for your gut health! 

While juicing removes the pulp and much of the fibre from the produce, it allows you to get loads of nutrients while giving your digestion a break. Similarly, smoothies can allow you to get lots of great vitamins quickly, while allowing it to pass through your digestive tract smoothly.

Eating vegetables and fruit is essential get the nutrients your body needs, but it can be difficult if you're struggling with bloating or other digestive problems - these allow you to super boost your nutrient intake. 

Juicing for digestive health

Juicing to improve your digestive health

Juicing allows you to get loads of nutrients quickly, while giving your digestion less to do in terms of having to break down chunks of food. 

Juicing removes the pulp and much of the fibre from the produce, but it's still a great way to improve your gut health as it allows all the goodness from the vegetables and fruit to be absorbed.

Juicing delivers the easiest to ingest nutrients on the planet, and retains 95% of the nutrients found in fruit and vegetables. These macro-and micro-nutrients are often much more bioavailable (meaning more of the nutrients will get to where they are needed) to your cells once juiced and they feed the body with precisely what it requires for optimum health.

Juicing for gut health - Gut Wealth

Juicing is a quick and tasty way of packing in all the vitamins, minerals, nutrients, phytonutrients and live enzymes that we need for optimum health. It's best to drink freshly juiced vegetables and fruit as this will give you the most benefit. 

You don't have to drink juices daily but if you can replace one of your meals with a juice each day (especially if you're feeling sluggish or bloated), it gives you all the great nutritional benefits while also allowing your digestive system one less big meal to break down.

Top tips for juicing for gut health

  • mix different types of vegetables and fruits to get a range of nutrients (and avoid food waste!)
  • drink juice on an empty stomach for the best absorption
  • if buying juices from a store, check that they don't add any additives

Boost your gut health with a smoothie

Smoothies can boost your gut health

Smoothies are a great way to increase the nutrients you're getting from fruit and vegetables, while also being gentle on your gut. It requires much less effort for your gut to process smoothies.

The fibre in smoothies helps to keep things moving through your digestive system smoothly, and because it's in liquid form there's less work for the gut to do. They can be especially helpful if you find it difficult to eat enough vegetables, fruit or seeds or you're busy.

You can also add prebiotics such as natural yogurt or protein to help make you feel fuller and avoid snacking which is often a cause of poor gut health.

Gut loving smoothies

Top tips for smoothies to improve your gut health

  • mix different types of vegetables and fruits to get a range of nutrients (and avoid food waste!)
  • add prebiotics such as natural yogurt or kefir for an extra dose of good bacteria

Before we speak about soups - are juices and smoothies bad for you?

Some says juices are bad for you because there isn’t enough fibre in them. But what some people don’t realise is that juices and smoothies are a great way improve your health if you have trouble digesting vegetables, fruit or seeds.

It can also improve gut health by reducing the amount of work needed to break down food, which can be helpful if your gut isn't working the way it should and is inflamed or bloated.

What about the sugar? Fruit sugar is not the same as white, refined sugar. The sugars are simply not the same. If you're concerned about your sugar intake, choose recipes that are predominantly vegetable-based, with apple, pear or pineapple added to make sure the juices and smoothies taste good.

Soup for your gut

Soups and your gut 

Soups are a great way to improve your gut health as they're easy for the gut to digest and they deliver a range of nutrients.

They're also a good way to increase your intake of water, which is essential for good gut health.
