Superfoods for digestive health

Aloe Vera

Fresh gel is rich in enzymes and has antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties. As well as being  anti-inflammatory, which is why it can be used for digestive complaints.

It is also helpful for Candida, parasitic infects and constipation.

Bone Broth

Bone broth is very easily digested and contains profound immune-optimising                      components.  It is incredibly healing to the gut and is used in the treatment of                       autoimmune diseases and autism or any disease cause by gut dysfunction. But also great for allergies or anyone else suffering from leaky gut.

Fermented Vegetables

Another very healing food to consume are fermented foods, suck as sauerkraut or kimchi. Fermented foods are potent chelators (detoxifiers) and contain much higher levels of beneficial bacteria than probiotic supplements. Also contain high  levels of antioxidants and fibre for optimal digestive health.

Kefir and Coconut Kefir

Kefir (fermented milk) and coconut kefir (fermented coconut water) are two more options to add more fermented foods to your diet. Both are rich in probiotics and enzymes to promote healthy bacterial balance .

Red Cabbage

Contains high quantities of  the amino acid L-glutamine, which is known to help  heal the soft tissue lining your intestines. It’s especially helpful for people with leaky gut, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, and irritable bowel  syndrome. Enjoy red cabbage steamed, juiced, fermented, which will add an abundance of gut-healthy enzymes and beneficial bacteria into the mix as well.
