Gut health is such a new topic in the health industry that it took me, a personal trainer of 4 year to finally start shedding light on it. But for Kriben Govender of the Gut Health Guru's podcast, it's been more than 20 years of Food industry experience that has allowed him to intimately understand the interaction between diet and the gut microbiome.
I had the absolute pleasure of Kriben coming on the Redesign Your Body podcast to chat all things digestive health, the immune system, fermented foods & lifestyle sustainability.
There were 3 very important tips that were shared with us to get improving not only our Microbiome, but our health overall:
1. Improving your sleep; Protecting your sleep with better sleep hygiene, a good sleep ritual & blue light management using blue light blocking glasses in the morning & evening.
2. Form a circadian rhythm; where you wake up and sleep at the same times, start eating at similar times each day and having a restricted eating window to finish the day.
3. Cleaner eating - swapping from the traditional Aussie diet to focus on more natural foods such as vegetables, fruits, lean meats & essential fats.
This can be further complemented with fermented foods such kefir, kombucha and homemade yogurts which don't cost much to make and are very sustainable.

"Simply being really grateful when you're taking that food in your mouth and saying a little prayer, saying a little gratitude because that imparts the right frame of mind when you're taking that food and being grateful for it." - Kriben Govender
We'd of the Redesign Community would like to express Kriben a massive thank you for coming onto the show to share his wealth of knowledge and wish him very well on his journey to improving the health of everyone he reaches.
