6 Better Belly Secrets from Gut Health Expert Summer Bock

Are you wishing for a better belly? Flatter, firmer, and less gas, bloating and distraction? 

Summer Bock is a leading gut health expert who coined the term “Gut Rebuilding.”  She integrates her traditional studies in herbalism with modern research and a background in microbiology. After resolving her own slew of health concerns naturally by focusing on the gut bioterrain, she started teaching others how to do the same.

She is certified in Integrative Nutrition through Columbia University and a three-time Good Food Award winner for her sauerkraut recipes. She is the founder of the Better Belly Project and CEO at Guts & Glory, an online business that offers live coaching and natural solutions for digestive problems. You can read her blog 

Summer’s response to Flipping 50’s recent health travel gut round up episodewhere I asked "what would you do for gut issues when traveling?"included the reason why it happens. She mentioned the collective impact of stress, changes in exercise habits, schedule change, and the fact your body likes routine. Her answer was so unique from other responses. We dig into that in this episode.

Summer mentioned six things to do during travel for a better belly/healthy gut and we spend time talking about those and fermented foods because I think of Summer as the gut health expert in this area, really THE expert on all things fermentation.

A quick refresh of Summer’s 6 better belly secrets for travel:

  1. Probiotics
  2. Bitters(liver lover, sweet & gentle)
  3. Magnesium
  4. Activated charcoal
  5. Baking soda
  6. Quercetin 

Questions Summer answered in this episode:

  1. What are bitters and how do they help? Are these the same as at the bar? 
  2. How does stress impact the gut? What do you recommend to your clients to help remedy the effects of stress? 
  3. How does exercise affect digestion?
  4. Fermented foods: What are they? Which are your favorite? Which to avoid?
