Some smoothie add-ins do double duty – they not only add flavour and nutrition, but also help with your digestive system.
Aloe vera juice adds a mild sweet flavour to your shake and helps support nutrient absorption in your digestive tract. (ask us about our Herbal Aloe beverage if you are not already taking it)
Yogurt contains probiotics – so-called “good” bacteria that help support digestive health. If you’re feeling extra adventurous you can also try amasi or kefir.
Ginger and Peppermint are both known to aid the digestive process.
Chia seeds are a very rich source of soluble fibre, which supports the growth of the good bacteria in your intestines.
Linseed is a gentle on the digestive system and also contain omega oils that are great for your brain, skin, and hair. But if you’re going to add linseed to your shake you might want to drink it up really quickly because if you let it stand for too long those seeds are going to get slimy!
