If you have ever suffered from something called “Leaky Gut” (otherwise known as “Intestinal Permeability”) you will know it is not something you want to have for long. While these ten foods and drinks mentioned in this post might help cure it if you are still digesting the problem of it (things like alcohol or aspirin) they might not do something. It is important to identify the cause of the Leaky gut syndrome and visit the doctor ASAP as it might be something more severe. But if that is all your problem is these foods and drinks should help your body cure it naturally…
It might not sound like the tastiest thing you will ever eat, but it is the one that is known to sure most mild intestinal problems. It is prepared by boiling the bones and connective tissues of various animals in water with a few additions of herbs and spices to give it flavour.
Modern nutritional research is a large part of picking the right foods that are healthy for our stomachs. One of the foods that have been deeply studied is, of course, a watermelon. If you have reflux this tasty fruit can help settle it down within hours making it a great nighttime snack.
Sadly I am not talking peppermint sweets here. I am of course talking about the herb. Simply digesting a few leaves can help relieve gas build up and slow down those gripping pains.
Just about any foods with high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids are good for indigestion, but walnuts are particularly good due to the high amounts of beneficial omega-3 fatty acid they have inside each one.
You might have got this advice from a grandma or someone much older as they have known about the health benefits of these dried plums for years thanks to their soluble and insoluble fibre amounts.
While a drink made with raspberries might be refreshing it is the fibre you want from them. With up to eight grams of fibre per cup, you can get your fix of fibre from just a small amount of them making them the perfect between meals snack.
It is the vitamin B inside these seeds that make them so good for the digestive system, but they are also known to be powerful natural anti-parasitic agents that can cure many different intestinal parasites.
Have you ever seen those little pots of yoghurt that say they are full of “Friendly bacteria” well they are not wrong at all (although some of them can be quite high in sugar). Just about any natural yoghurts with probiotics inside of them is good for you.
It might sound like simple advice, but staying hydrated does help your intestinal system quite a lot. This is especially true in warmer climates where there is no let-up in the power of the sun. Keep the flow going through the body with water everybody!
It might not make your breath smell nice, but chewing on some raw garlic before eating can help your stomach acids calm down while eating. While this preventive measure isn’t going to help you when you have digestive problems like heartburn it will help prevent it.
