Taking Charge of Your Gut Health

When food enters the digestive system, it goes through a process where the nutrients are pulled out of the food passing through. When the gut flora is well developed, your digestive system is able to pull more good things out and fight off harmful pathogens that pass through. It can be difficult to get the variety of nutrients that your body requires in your meals each day, but luckily with some creativity and a blender, you can pack a lot of those beneficial nutrients into one meal! 

At New Earth, we love smoothies for their ease and customizability. Adding nutrient-packed smoothies into your routine can help to support your gut health and increase your nutrient intake. That is if you build them the right way. 

Supporting your gut comes with a variety of benefits, including better digestion, a stronger immune system, fighting off stress and fatigue, and increasing your good mood! There are many ingredients you can add to your smoothies to really get that gut moving and grooving at peak performance, let’s check out some of our favorites.

Fermented Friends

There are a plethora of fermented foods available that pair nicely with a fresh smoothie and help support the gut. Kefir and yogurt are both filled with probiotics that help restore the good bacteria and crowd out bad bacteria already living in your gut. 

Kefir is a great addition because it has triple the amount of probiotics as yogurt and has the ability to fit into a variety of diets. Look for or make non-dairy kefir made with coconut milk or low sugar versions made with unprocessed sugar. 


There’s a lot going on down in your gut and making sure that everything runs smoothly is key. Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which is an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals in your digestive system. Which in turn, limits the harm these pesky free radicals can cause. Add turmeric to your smoothie for its great benefits and its pretty yellow color. 


Like the others on this list, when ingested, ginger clears out the bad bacteria and helps to create an optimal environment for good bacteria. A natural digestive aid, ginger relaxes the colon and soothes the digestive tract. It also helps break up gas to relieve bloating. Ginger is an ancient medicinal food and continues to have wonderful benefits in our bodies.

Organic Wild Microalgae®

Crafting a smoothie is just like making any other meal. The right ingredients paired together help create the wonderful taste you are after. And, when the wrong ingredient creeps in, it can ruin the flavor of the entire dish. It’s a fine balance creating a smoothie that is both nutritious and delicious. When it comes to maintaining this balance there is one ingredient we turn to time and time again, organic Wild Microalgae, also known as Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA).  

This ancient superfood comes fully loaded with 20 standard amino acids making it a complete protein, 13 necessary vitamins, essential fatty acids, amino acids, trace minerals, antioxidants, and more!  

The amino acids provide vital energy and fuel, the essential fatty acids are crucial for healthy growth and repair of the skin, blood vessels, and nerve tissue, and the antioxidants quench free radicals thus helping protect your ever-important cells. It’s a superfood worth having in your diet every day.

A little bit of this superfood goes a long way and with the other ingredients in your smoothie, you won’t even know its there.
