Gut smoothie

  • Ward off viruses and boost your immune system with our gut smoothie to help feed your little soldiers (as we like to call them).
  • The gut, also called the gastrointestinal tract is the stomach and the intestines. They are the crucial parts of our digestive systems. 80 percent of our immune system is located in your digestive system. A healthy gut is key  if you want to maintain optimal health. A strong immune system is your number one defense system against all viruses, infections and diseases.
  • It is important to keep our guts healthy and efficient by eating the right foods.
  • Smoothies are a great way to do this because they are convenient, easy to make, and you control the ingredients.
  • Try to include more of the following in your diet:
  • Apples:
  • Eating good sources of fiber is key because it helps facilitate the body’s natural digestive process. One cup of apples contains 3 grams of dietary fiber.
  • Carrots:
  • One cup of carrots contains 3.6 grams of dietary fiber.
  • Garlic:
  • It helps to maintain a healthy and effective digestive system. It also gets rid of waste in the body, and helps stimulate digestive fluids. The consumption of garlic is also linked to the reduction of certain types of cancers, mainly gastric cancer. Garlic has antibacterial properties, protects DNA, and also helps prevent cancer cells from forming or spreading.
  • Ginger:
  • This potent spice has been used in China for over two millenniums to aid digestion and treat stomach upset, diarrhea, and nausea. Ginger should be used in moderation however, as too much may cause heartburn.
