MISO contains natural probiotics, which boost the digestive system.

FLAXSEEDS help to reduce constipation and encourage healthy bowel movements. Eat two tablespoons of ground flaxseeds per day, sprinkled onto food, or soaked in water.

RAW GARLIC and ONION are a good source of prebiotics, which can stimulate the growth of beneficial gut bacteria.

SPINACH is a fantastic source of vitamin A and also provides zinc - both of which are essential for maintaining a healthy gut lining.
