Love Your Gut

Indulge in a Healing Journey, Care for your Gut Health

Having a healthy, balanced gut is key to many aspects of your well-being, including your immune system and mental health [1]. Your gut environment is filled with microorganisms (bacteria, fungi and viruses) called the microbiota and the genes these microorganisms carry are called the human microbiome [2]. The microbiome is considered a virtual organ that influences innate immunity, appetite and energy metabolism (the process of producing energy from nutrients) [3]. Loving your gut means keeping it healthy and properly balanced by opting for high-fiber foods, fermented foods, whole grains and prebiotic food resources. 

Maiana's gut health products are rich in fiber, antioxidants and live cultures (probiotics) that, when mindfully included in your diet and in consultation with your dietitian, will help you improve your microbial balance. 

Signs of An Unhealthy Gut

Gas, bloating, heartburn and other stomach issues are signs of a bad gut [4]. Excessive sugar cravings may also indicate that your gut microbiota is dominated by gut microbes that control your eating behaviors and cause you to crave sugar [5]. Your mental health can also be compromised when you have poor gut health.That is why research suggests that eating a plant-based diet rich in whole foods may reduce anxiety [6]. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Prebiotic foods such as garlic, banana, legumes, oats and lentils are great to stimulate the growth of your good bacteria. Yogurt with live cultures, miso and fermented foods and drinks naturally contain yeast and bacteria and shown to be beneficial for your gut [7]. Love your gut and begin your healing journey with our premium products that will nourish not only your body but your soul.
