Why is gut health important?
Your gut is home to trillions of bacteria that play a crucial role in your overall health. When your gut is healthy, your immune system is stronger, your energy levels are higher, and your mood is better. On the other hand, an unhealthy gut can lead to a range of issues, from digestive problems to autoimmune diseases.
One of the best ways to improve your gut health is by eating a diet rich in fiber and probiotics. Fiber helps to keep your digestive system running smoothly, while probiotics introduce beneficial bacteria to your gut.
In addition to eating a healthy diet, you can also support your gut health by drinking teas that aid in digestion. Here are a few teas to consider, especially effortless when using The Wall Glass Tea Infuser:
1 Ginger tea - Ginger has long been known for its digestive properties. It can help to relieve nausea, bloating, and constipation. Plus, it has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce inflammation in the gut. Try our Ginger Fresh Herbal Tea or Tangerine Ginger Fruit Tea.
2 Peppermint tea - Peppermint is another herb that can soothe the digestive system. It can help to relieve gas and bloating and may even have a calming effect on the stomach. Try our Organic Peppermint Herbal Tea of our Myrtle and Mint Herbal Tea.

Spring cleaning your diet
Now that you know a few teas that can help with digestion, it's time to think about spring cleaning your diet. Here are a few tips to get you started:
1 Eat more whole foods - Focus on eating whole, unprocessed foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. These foods are rich in fiber and nutrients that support gut health.
2 Reduce your intake of sugar and processed foods - These foods can disrupt the balance of bacteria in your gut and lead to inflammation.
3 Incorporate probiotic-rich foods - Probiotics introduce beneficial bacteria to your gut, which can improve digestion and boost your immune system. Some examples of probiotic-rich foods include yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi. Try our Golden 5 year Puerh.
4 Stay hydrated - Drinking plenty of water can help to keep your digestive system running smoothly.
In conclusion, spring cleaning is a great opportunity to focus on improving your gut health. By incorporating teas that aid in digestion and eating a diet rich in fiber and probiotics, you can support the health of your gut and improve your overall well-being.
