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.
OATS are full of fibre. Many of us fall short of the recommended daily fibre intake (at least 18g per day), which is important for good digestive health. It helps to move waste along the digestive system and prevents constipation.
