It's Possible: How to Improve Your Gut Health in 24 Hours

You'd be forgiven for thinking gut health refers to one specific part of the body, but the more we discover about this emerging health topic, the clearer it is that it involves far more than the gut. As Vincent Pedre, MD, author of Happy Gut, recently told us, it's actually linked to a ton of seemingly unrelated systems and symptoms. "Fatigue, mental fog, and allergic conditions like an allergy, asthma, or skin rashes are all related to poor gut health," he says. "You have to find the root cause, dig deep, and look under the hood. The gut is the foundation of our health—you have to start there."

Given how complex, common, and frustratingly vague the symptoms are, it can be tricky to know whether you have a gut imbalance and how to treat it. Here, we've narrowed down a simple 24-hour approach to improving your gut health, drawing on emerging research and expert advice. Follow this easy routine to get back on track and start healing your gut.
