The most gut health benefits can be derived from black, green and white teas. These teas contain polyphenols (catechins and theaflavins) that are prebiotics for your gut.
Polyphenols promote the growth of good bacteria and funghi while suppressing the growth of bad bacteria, and promote a balanced microbiome. Herbal teas will also support a diverse gut microbiome because of their unique polyphenols. Eating and drinking polyphenols is one the most effective and sustainable natural ways to get good gut health.
Tea happens to be one of the most abundant sources of polyphenols found in nature. Studies show, however, that we need to drink at least 3-5 cups per day in order to experience tangible health benefits. If you want to learn more about how to use tea to heal your gut, as well as what other things you should be eating and doing, you can find all that (and lots more fun gut facts) in this blog.
