​GET OUTSIDE AND HELP YOUR GUT

GET OUTSIDE AND HELP YOUR GUT

This time of year, as the sun starts to get stronger and the temperature creeps up, people seem to emerge like butterflies from a cocoon. That first feel of warm sun on your face is such a lift after the chilly winter. Perhaps time to get out in the garden and prepare it for the new season too.

Here’s the good news. Going outside is good for your gut. Honest.

Let us explain. Ours guts need variety to be healthy. A lot of us lead very indoor lives, have a limited diet or eat a lot of processed food, and might be in over-sanitized environments much of the time. This all puts a strain on our gut health and reduces the diversity of its microbiome.

In contrast, getting outside gives us the kind of contact with the environment that people have had over thousands of years, and the kind that helps your microbiome. Humans have evolved while being outside much of the time and having contact with our environment in many ways. We gain a kind of ‘natural inoculation’ from the outdoors. Not to mention the benefits of breathing that good old fresh air.

So, ditch the spring cleaning for a bit and get outside when you can – and maybe even plant yourself some seeds to have some vegetables ready for the autumn harvest.
