Anti-Inflammatory Wholefoods For Brain & Gut Health

Anti-Inflammatory Wholefoods For Brain & Gut Health



Nourishing the gut and brain and the importance of anti-inflammatory foods.


In our modern world that often demands more from us than we can handle, focusing on our health has never been more important.

When it comes to nourishing our bodies, anti-inflammatory foods such as our Grass Fed Collagen, Marine Collagen and Organic Grass Fed Beef Liver are a powerful ally in supporting gut health and brain health.

In this blog post, we'll delve into the importance of reducing inflammation in the body and look at how it connects to numerous health issues.

Autoimmune diseases exemplify how the body's innate defence mechanisms can turn against itself, then becoming self-destructive. The prevalent use of anti-inflammatory medications is found everywhere, that alternatives might seem scarce. However, there are other holistic healing approaches to support the body against anti-inflammatory which you can integrate into your daily habits.  


Understanding Inflammation

Inflammation is a response by our immune system to protect our bodies from  invaders such as pathogens, toxins, or injuries. While small amounts of inflammation is essential for healing and keeping us safe, chronic inflammation can wreak havoc on our health.


The Gut-Brain Connection

The gut and brain are intimately linked through the gut-brain axis. This communication system involves a network of nerves, hormones, and messengers. When inflammation is high in the gut, it can trigger an inflammatory response in the brain and vice versa. This highlights the significance of maintaining a healthy gut to promote overall brain health.


The Importance of Gut Health

A flourishing gut is important for proper digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune function. When inflammation disrupts the gut lining, it can lead to intestinal permeability, commonly known as "leaky gut." This allows harmful substances to escape into the bloodstream, triggering inflammation that can affect various organs, including the brain.

Our Grass-Fed Collagen contains Type 1 and Type 3 Collagen peptides which works to heal the wall of the gut lining, supporting gut health and inflammatory diseases. 

Our Collagen is in powdered form, for easy every day consumption. 


The Link Between Inflammation and Brain Health

Studies have shown a direct connection between inflammation and neurological conditions like Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, depression, and anxiety. Inflammation can impair the functioning of nuerons, leading to cognitive decline and mood disturbances.

Our Organic Beef Liver and Collagens contain vitamins and minerals which may help the body fight inflammatory diseases, supporting the body to heal naturally. 


Anti-Inflammatory Foods to the Rescue

The good news is that we can combat inflammation through our diet. Incorporating anti-inflammatory foods can help lower overall inflammation levels in the body, supporting both gut health and brain health.

  • Fatty Fish: Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and sardines possess potent anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Colourful Fruits and Vegetables: Fruits and vegetables are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and phytonutrients that combat inflammation. Berries, leafy greens, turmeric, and ginger are excellent choices. Make sure you aren't eating vegetables that are gut irritating or hard to digest. 

  • Healthy Fats: Olive oil, avocados, and coconut oil contain monounsaturated fats that help reduce inflammation.

  • Gelatin & Bone Broth - gelatinous rich foods are a huge benefit to countering inflammation, including our Marine and Classic Collagens. 

  • Probiotics and Prebiotics: Fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, and sauerkraut introduce beneficial probiotics to the gut, while prebiotic-rich foods like garlic and onions nourish these gut-friendly bacteria.

A Holistic Approach to Wellness

Remember, reducing inflammation is not solely about individual foods but also about a holistic approach to wellness. Gentle exercise, stress management, quality sleep, and avoiding processed and and poly unsaturated fatty acids all play a huge role in supporting the fight against inflammation.


Prioritising anti-inflammatory foods is a step towards nurturing both gut health and brain health.
