So today we're going to talk about what foods are "high" in "digestive enzymes"
But first . . . let's go over some of the signs of problems in the "digestive tract"
And they would be . . .
Bleeding, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, nausea, pain in the belly, urinary incontinence and vomiting,
And many of us even can experience "gastroparesis", which is a disorder that occurs when the stomach takes too long to empty food. And this . . . can lead to nausea, vomiting and feeling easily full.
Okay . . . now with that being said . . . the 3 most powerful "digestive superfoods" are:
"Sauerkraut", "Leafy Green" and "Ginger"
So let's break it down to better understand why . . .
"Sauerkraut" is a great source of "immune-boosting" probiotics and nutrients.
Now . . . as we know . . . the "bacteria" (good and bad) that populate the gut . . . can have a strong influence on the immune system. And the "probiotics" in sauerkraut can help improve that balance of "good" to "bad" bacteria in the gut. Which in turn . . . can help to improve the lining of the small intestinal walls . . . hence helping reduce "leaky gut".
Next up . . . "Leafy Greens" . . .
Now . . . "leafy greens" like spinach, kale, collard greens, dandelion leaf and swiss chard not only are a great source of fiber, folates, vitamin C, K and A . . . they also contain a specific type of "sugar" . . . what?????
Hold on to your horses people . . . I'm actually talking about a GOOD SUGAR . . .
How can this be????
Well . . . this specific "sugar" . . . . can help "fuel" the growth of the "good" bacteria in our intestines.
You know . . . our immune system's line of defense for optimal health and weight management.
Who would of thought that something a simple as a leaf of spinach has such a powerful secret little weapon in it.
And finally "Ginger" . . . one of my favorite little spices
"Ginger" actually contains specific "enzymes" that can help the body break up and expel gas in the stomach and intestines.
You see . . . "ginger" works by increasing "agni" or "digestive fire" which helps to break down our food. It stimulates saliva, bile and gastric enzymes that aid digestion and help speed the movement of food from the stomach to the small intestine.
Pretty cool . . . right???
But . . . what if you don't like any of these superfoods???
Well . . . tomorrow we'll talk about a solution . . .
