Weekend Plus Desk :
When we talk about weight loss, gut health is a topic that cannot be avoided. A healthy gut is not only necessary for your immune system, but it also promotes good digestive health, which is paramount when trying to lose weight.
Unhealthy gut health can lead to several health-related issues like constipation, fatigue, food intolerance and worst of all weight gain. So, when you are on a mission to shed kilos, first of all, you need to balance your gut microbes. Many people feel that eating fermented food and probiotics is the best way to improve gut health, but some yoga poses can also help to keep your gut healthy.
