Gut health apps can be extremely beneficial for those looking to get more in-tune with their bodies, recognize signs of an unhealthy gut, and make lifestyle changes for better gut health. Navigating the world of medical literature can be daunting, but having an app standing by to help you can be a fantastic thing.

How to Track and Improve Gut Health

Many elements go into monitoring gut health, including keeping track of changes in bowel movements, mood changes, and digestive issues like heartburn and stomach aches. It can be a lot of information to remember, and no one wants to carry around a diary to write these things down. Can you imagine if someone got a hand on your poop diary?

Gut health apps are here to the rescue. Here are the best ones we’ve found.

Cara

Cara makes many "best gut health app" lists, and for a good reason. It's free, available for both Apple and Android phones, and currently has a 4.6-star rating in the iPhone app store. Cara prompts you to enter the symptoms you're experiencing and even provides you with a personal nutritionist for consultation.

The app encourages you to track what you eat and how you feel to identify better "good foods" and "bad foods."

mySymptoms Food Diary

Another gut health app that's available for both Apple and Android devices, mySymptoms Food Diary helps monitor your sleep, exercise, symptoms, stress levels, bowel movements, and food intake. The goal is to help identify foods, beverages, and environmental triggers that hurt your gut health and develop healthier habits.

The app compiles your data to put into a chart that you can share with your doctor.

MyHealthyGut

MyHealthyGut delivers evidence-based programs to improve gut health right on your smartphone. It enables users to log their emotions and psychological stress factors, along with their diet and symptoms. The app is focused on providing individuals with recipes and tools to promote a whole-food, anti-inflammatory diet to increase energy and decrease symptoms of an unhealthy gut.

Additionally, the app features a Q&A bot to answer any questions you may have in real-time.

FoodMarble

The FoodMarble app is a little different than the rest. It comes complete with a small device that connects to an app on your smartphone that acts as a "breath test." The breath test is based on tests previously only available at a doctor's office and allows you to see how different foods are affecting you in real-time. 

The app can determine what type of foods your body is having trouble digesting based on monitoring the levels of hydrogen present in your breath.
