The human gut is filled with bacteria, and this is vitally essential. Unfortunately, if the balance of beneficial and harmful bacteria in the gut gets tipped in the wrong direction, a lot of digestive disturbances can follow. Add in a high-quality probiotic has made a big difference in digestive health for us. Another great way to boost beneficial gut bacteria and improve digestive health is to consume fermented foods or drinks regularly. These are an excellent source of probiotics and enzymes and can help nutrient absorption. In combination with a good probiotic fermented foods and drinks can make a big difference in ease of digestion and avoiding bloating.

Eat More Fat!
Advice is often given to avoid fat and protein when constipated. Well that my friend is a big myth! Especially those who struggle with constipation can benefit from adding more fat (from good sources) to their diet. Fats we consume regularly are coconut oil, grass fed butter, avocado oil and olive oil. The fats we don’t consume ever?
One way I have started to add more fat into my diet is adding it to my coffee. What yep! Sounds weird but there are some amazing benefits from adding grass fed butter or grass fed ghee to your coffee. (This is from a girl who used to like a little coffee in her creamer!) No more creamer for me! I just add grass fed butter and a few drops of stevia.
