You'll never confuse them with tums, but if you're looking to calm your gut, you could try avocados, according to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition. In a study of 163 people, those who ate an avocado a day for 12 weeks developed a more robust and diverse "gut microbiome" — a vivid term for the bacteria in your stomach and colon that impacts everything from a better mood to towards a stronger immune system.
It turns out that the bacteria like to feed on the type of fiber found in avocados, helping to settle your stomach and aid in digestion after a meal.
Try using avocado for breakfast (in an omelet), lunch (with a salad), or dinner (on a burrito bowl). You don't need to make any different adjustments to your daily meal plan to support your gut health.
