Chia Seeds are not only a brilliant source of nutrients and antioxidants, they’re also an excellent source of fibre, omega-3, fatty acids and minerals. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds provide 10g of fibre which not only means that they regulate your bowel function, but are also inflammatory and assist with lowering cholesterol too.
Papaya is another excellent food for improving your digestion due to the enzyme it contains known as papain which assists your body with breaking down protein fibres for digestion. Papaya is also very high in fibre and contains a high water content which is beneficial for a healthy digestive tract.
Beetroot is brilliant for your digestive system. Beetroots are high in fibre, feed your healthy gut bacteria and add substance to your stool, thus making your digestive system work more efficiently.
Coconut oil contains antimicrobial properties and fatty acids which improve your digestion as well as your immune system and metabolism. Cooking with coconut oil, as opposed to butter or vegetable oil, is a great way to add an extra dose of vitamins and minerals into your diet as well as antioxidants.
