8 Good For Your Gut Foods

August 19, 2014 2 min read

Bacteria, it’s not just for petri dishes anymore. You’ve probably heard of the many probiotic foods that contain good bacteria for you, like yogurt and kefir, but you should also be balancing out your diet with prebiotic foods, which nourish the healthy bacteria already found in our body (otherwise known as our microbiome – bacteria that lives in our body). Here are 8 prebiotic superfoods to help with digestion, immunity, and metabolism: 1. Garlic – no complaints here, I am a garlic-fiend. Already known for its immune system boosting properties, garlic also fights bad stomach bacteria. It’s like a really smelly food superhero. 2. Radishes – previously known to me as “that pink stuff” at my local falafel stop. Good bacteria love what radishes have to offer, a compound called arabiongalactans. You don’t need to know how to pronounce it to know that the bacteria in your body will thank you for it. goodgutradishes 3. Jerusalem artichoke – a vegetable that I did not know existed, it contains a fibre/prebiotic called inulin, which fills you up without the extra calorie intake. goodgutjerusalemartichoke 4. Leeks – the walls of your gut will love all the fibre and flavonoids found in leeks, as manganese makes digestive enzymes and vitamin A, which helps to heal your stomach lining. 5. Jicama – which I recently ate at Fresh, is a crunchy root vegetable with a high inulin content, and contains compounds that help our microbiome create bacteria. It also tastes great with vegan chipotle mayo, in case you were wondering. goodgutJicama-Salad2 6. Asparagus – full of inulin, heals the gut wall, and has magnesium for digestive enzymes. No wonder it’s called aspara-gut. Eh? Get it? Well, I think I’m funny. 7. Carrots – like radishes, carrots contain arabiongalactans, great for your gut and your skin. goodgutCarrot-Nutri-Red-Sugarsnax-Purplesnax-1024x768 8. Turmeric – a delicious spice that acts as an anti-flammatory to help heal the gut.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
