Fortunately, a healthy diet is one of the ways you can keep your adrenal glands running smoothly. We can help you opt for a diet full of healthy whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and quality protein sources.
Microbiome and Gut Health
The bacteria we have in our bodies can contribute heavily to our overall health, so a big part of functional health is ensuring that both our microbiome and gut health are good. As with much of our health, a lot of it comes down to diet.
Fermented foods are superstars for gut health as are different kinds of berries, green vegetables, fiber-rich foods, and whole grains. Caring for our microbiome and gut health can have ripple effects, too, even cutting back on inflammation. Plus, many of these foods are simply nutrient-rich and good for the body in every way.
