Modern life has taken a toll on our digestive system. Processed foods, pollutants in our foods, antibiotics, and stress are constantly irritating our intestines and clogging our livers.
By returning to the consumption of clean, whole, natural foods, and eating the specific healing foods on this list, you will be able to cleanse your digestive system, soothe irritated intestinal tissues, and clean out your liver. Here is a list of 7 top foods to add to your diet.
1. Coconut kefir
Coconut kefir is fermented coconut water. Enjoy it as a cold beverage and know that drinking it will colonize your gut with beneficial, soothing, anti-inflammatory bacteria that is essential to the health of your gut.
We need this good bacteria in our guts to absorb vitamins and minerals, synthesize hormones in our body, and to keep our intestinal tissue healthy and not irritated.
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera has long been used to soothe the digestive system. Modern research has validated aloe vera’s power to decrease damage-causing inflammation and oxidative stress in colon tissue .
3. Red Cabbage
Red cabbage contains a large amount of the amino acid L-glutamine.
This amino acid is critical for the maintenance and repair of the gut mucosal barrier. A healthy, non-leaky gut keeps many toxins, allergens, and pathogens from entering your blood from your intestines.
When this barrier fails, it causes inflammation throughout your body and malabsorption of nutrients. L-glutamine helps keep this barrier healthy and strong .
4. Bone Broth
Bone broth is full of the amino acids proline and glycine, which are critical for gut barrier function.
Dairy yogurt or vegan yogurt made from nuts and starches is another great way to get healthy bugs in your gut. As a bonus, eating these good bugs helps keep bad bugs out of your gut.
Omega 3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA are critical for reducing inflammation in your body. The anti-inflammatory compounds they help generate are aptly named “resolvins”.
7. Steamed Vegetables
These are easy for a weakened gut to digest and are packed with minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.
Suffering from constipation, diarrhea, gas or bloating?
You may have an overabundance of bad bacteria or fungi in your gut.
Fortunately, you can fight back with good, healthy bacteria!
