Tips, advice and product recommendations to support your nutrition
You might have heard people talk about foods as a ‘trigger’. This means that a food may contain something in it that’s causing your gut health symptoms.
Remember, the length of time that it takes for food to pass through different areas of the gut can be considerable. So, bloating and farting just after you’ve eaten a meal is unlikely to have been caused by the food you just ate, as that food still has a long journey before reaching those gas-producing microbes in the colon – making it harder to know the true trigger.
If you suspect that certain foods are bringing on poor gut health symptoms, it’s important that you don’t remove foods or food groups from your diet without first consulting with a specialist in diet and gut health.

Eating a healthy and balanced diet is essential for your health and wellbeing, and fortunately, there are lots of healthy food options to choose from, without compromising on taste.
Healthy but tasty food options include breakfast cereals, superfoods and dried fruit, nuts and seeds. It is also important that you get a good amount of daily exercise.
The NHS recommends that adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of intense activity each week.
There are also a number of weight loss supplements available, which can help to support weight management, as part of a controlled diet.
These include fat burners and binders, meal replacements and exercise support such as diet whey protein.
