Half of Americans are deficient in basic nutrients like Magnesium, Fiber, Potassium and many more. Because of soil depletion, crops grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today.
That is why it is important to try and buy your food from a reputable source. Farmers who are not only growing organic, but growing their food for maximum nutrient health.
So many of us have problems sleeping.
I have struggled with my sleep over the last three years. It originally started because of a tragedy I suffered.
With the poor sleep, came the poor eating habits. I started eating more carbs and drinking wine in the evening. My gut health suffered. Soon the main cause of my poor sleep was caused by my poor gut health.
With the start of 2020 and the holiday stress, parties behind me, I made a promise to myself. I was going to cut out alcohol and really start focusing on what I was eating. Starting with loads of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs and healthy fats.
Three weeks into the New Year and I have stuck to my promise to myself. I am sleeping better and I feel better, I also have a better attitude. I’m feeling more positive, and I am not as quick to get upset or angry with someone.
If you are having trouble sleeping really look at what you are eating day in and day out. Start to write down what you eat and drink. Enter it into MyFitness Pal to see what your sugar intake is. Are you getting enough nutrients. I bet the culprit to your poor sleep is your poor diet.
Sleep and gut health are the important parts of a good wellness routine.
A new study shows that gut microbiome can influence sleep quality.
The findings showed that “total microbiome diversity was positively correlated with increased sleep efficiency and total sleep time, and was negatively correlated with wake after sleep onset,” as the authors wrote. In other words, the participants who slept well had a healthier gut microbiome.
Published in PLOS One, the results show that lack of sleep can negatively affect your gut microbiome.
