Since the start of the pandemic, there has been an increasing focus on the body’s immune system and better health practices in general. One of the biggest topics – on social and conventional media has been a focus on digestive practices – or Gut Health for short. Gut Health is all about what you eat – and the effect those foods have on everything from your kidneys to your brain. It’s about how your gastrointestinal system affects how you feel, how you think and how the rest of your body’s systems work!
And tons of research is showing that the effects are substantial. This is all about your ‘micro biome’ – the balance of bacteria (good & bad) that regulates how your body works – and shares the information (good & bad) with your brain!
The science is complicated – but the results are simple: You are What You Eat – so we should all be eating better stuff!! And one way to really treat your tummy well is to enjoy dried fruits in your cooking, baking and snacking. Besides great taste, dried fruits are super-healthy, being Prebiotic (very high in fiber) and containing antioxidants, vitamins and other essential ingredients.
At Bignest Harvest, our dried cherries, blueberries, peaches, pears and apples have no sugar added, no preservatives and they can help your ‘gut-goodness’ each and every day!
