Gut-healing smoothie. What's that you ask? Well, the process of digestion and absorption is one of the most important to our health. It’s an idea that dates back more than 2,000 years, when renowned Greek physician Hippocrates said that ‘all disease begins in the gut’. We believe that this statement is truer today than ever! This Gut-Healing Smoothie is one of our favourite ways to alleviate digestive problems and safeguard our guts with a healthy dose of probiotic. Plus it tastes absolutely delicious and will totally satisfy your taste buds! Cultured, foods (like the coconut yogurt in this smoothie) are chock-full of probiotics or good bacteria. The beneficial bacteria in these foods are highly potent detoxifiers, capable of drawing out a wide range of toxins and heavy metals. On top of that some cultured foods are outstanding sources of essential nutrients such as vitamin K2 and also a potent producer of many B vitamins. This gut-healing smoothie is the perfect step to start healing your gut! Add 5 grams of L-glutamine powder for an extra boost!
