Gut health has evolved from hush-hush to hot topic and it’s no secret that elimination is one of the most important movements our body makes– it amps up our immunity, metabolism and moods.
We all know by now that a diet rich in whole grains, fibers, fresh fruits, and vegetables is essential for optimal digestion. But we must also make room for good bacteria in our digestive systems. Probiotic supplements and cultured dairy products like kefir – yogurt’s three times more potent family member – have an abundance of them. Kombucha and fermented veggies should also be on your radar and are a great excuse to rescue your mason jars from the cabinet’s caverns.
Food isn’t the only thing we can ingest in order to digest either; activated charcoal may be the most buzzed about ingredient lately, but we've been telling our clients for years to buy some for its unique ability to magnetize toxins and keep you healthy on the road. - Lindsey Jarrett
