Get to know your good gut bacteria

When we think ‘bacteria’, we tend to think of the word as a negative. However, our bodies are actually full of trillions of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Collectively known as the microbiome, many of these live inside our gut. While we might associate some bacteria with disease and infection, many are important for our bodily functions, including our immune system, weight, heart and other aspects of our wellbeing. With that in mind, here are just a few ways you can help your ‘good’ gut bacteria do their job.

3 ways to boost gut bacteria

Take a prebiotic

You’ve probably heard of probiotics, but did you know that prebiotics are just as important? In fact, they provide your ‘good’ bacteria with the nutrition they need to stay healthy. Enter Bimuno® DAILY, the award-winning prebiotic powder supplement that makes gut health simple. The most studied prebiotic of its kind, Bimuno supports bifidobacteria. Moreover, this ‘good’ gut bacteria is linked to digestive health, mental health, immunity – even how well we sleep! Bimuno DAILY is easy to include in your everyday routine. Simply stir the taste-free powder into your morning tea, coffee or juice. 

Bimuno is rated ‘Excellent’ from over 3,000 independent consumer reviews on Trustpilot, so why not try a starter pack for free today? You can find it from just 30p per day on

Scrape your tongue

Acknowledging the harmony between gut health and skin, Urban Veda’s ancient philosophy of Ayurveda brings holistic rituals that promote internal and external health as well as well-being to the forefront of modern-day living. The Ayurvedic ritual of ‘tongue scraping’ is an integral ritual. In fact, it’s linked to improving the gut microbiome as it removes the build-up of white mucus-like toxins on the tongue. This can help to prevent gut inflammation, which can be caused by ingesting the toxins. Made from naturally cleansing copper, use the Urban Veda tongue scraper each morning to also promote healthy oral hygiene, heightened taste-bud sensitivity and appeased bad breath. 

Enjoy 10 percent off the Tongue Scraper (RRP £12) with the code: GUT20. Expires on August 15th 2021.

Enter Urban Veda’s competition here to win a tongue scraper! The winner will be announced on August 15th 2021.
