A Genius way to improved gut health
What a couple of years it’s been for the gut! After being thoroughly researched, probed and studied, it now has a company dedicated to producing food for it. The gut has been hailed “the second brain”, with experts pointing out that it’s more important than previously realised.
One key finding is the gut’s role in determining mood – between 70 and 90 per cent of serotonin (the happy hormone) is produced in this area, so it’s important to keep it singing. That’s where Genius Gluten Free comes in – its fibre-packed bakery products are an upgrade of the food staples that you love.
The Genius Good For The Gut range contains prebiotic fibre from chicory root inulin, a naturally occurring prebiotic fibre that contributes to improved gut function (put simply, it helps you go more often… and that’s a good thing. Honest).
You don’t need to be a dietician to know that a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are important for good gut health, and Genius has your needs covered. The Fibre Fest Cob is perfect for families, Triple Seeded Bread goes down a storm with soup, Triple Seeded Rolls are a must for a packed lunch, while the Beetroot Wraps are a big hit while on the go.
The World Health Organization recommends 30g of fibre a day, but in the UK most of us consume just 18g on average. The good news is that Genius is not only gluten-free, it’s packed with fibre, which is essential for making a happier, healthier you, both inside and out.
3 TIPS FOR GOOD GUT HEALTH
Keep food intake varied
Try to eat and fit in as many different types of vegetables, seeds and nuts into your mealtimes as possible.
Drink plenty of water
This will help regulate your bowel movements, especially if you’re trying to get more fibre in your diet.
Try to Take Stress out of your DAY
Find a pastime, hobby or activity that de-stresses you like jogging, doing a spin class or reading a good book at night, as stress is bad for your gut.
