Gut Health and Alcohol

Gut Health & Alcohol 🍷

Over-consumption of alcohol has been proven to have a negative impact on the gut. Those who consume alcohol regularly have higher rates of alcohol-induced oxidative stress and intestinal dysbiosis, which often leads to gastrointestinal inflammation and leaky gut syndrome.
Binge drinking (more than four drinks per event) can result in a rapid increase of bacteria toxins in the cell, inflammation, and disturbance of the immune system.

If you are consuming alcohol, prep your body! 🍊🍽
1. Probiotics
2. Vitamin C
3. Fiber
4. Drink responsibly
5. Stick to low FODMAP approved drinks (ie: dry wines, gin, vodka, whiskey)
6. Watch your mixers!
7. Alternate between a drink and a glass of water
8. Eat a healthy, balanced meal prior to drinking
