Your gut does so much more than digest food. When its chemistry is imbalanced, you not only miss out on the nutrition your food offers, but your immunity and mood are compromised and you are more likely to develop allergies. Digestive complaints are common in the U.S. – irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) alone affects an estimated 10 to 15 percent of individuals. Eating foods that contain probiotics, prebiotics and spices to support digestive health can help relieve your tummy troubles, and improve your mood.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that populate your gut and support digestive wellness.
A diet rich in prebiotic fiber helps you cultivate a healthy population of friendly bacteria in your gut and prevents the growth of unhealthy bacteria.
Spices including cumin, ginger root, and peppermint help soothe your gut by facilitating digestion.
Our Smart Nutrition Workbook will help you incorporate these foods into your life, and help you have a better quality of life by implementing a good nutritional plan. It’s all about baby steps – Get the book today!
