The negative effects of a stressful lifestyle and wrong eating habits will accumulate and create serious problems with the digestive tract which can be extremely debilitating.

These foods should be part of your regular diet to to rejuvenate and maintain your digestive health.

1.Lemon/Lime

Lemon is great for alkalizing the body. It will help regulate your body’s PH levels and keep your gut healthy! It’s also an amazing source of vitamin C and electrolytes. Squeeze a full lemon in a cup of warm water, and drink it, instead of your morning coffee. It works best on an empty stomach and will really kick start your digestion.

3. Bone Broth

A warm, delicious, gelatinous bone broth is great for your digestive tract. Nutrient dense bone broth has a very jelly like texture when cold, but when heated it it melts easily back to its soupy form. The gelatin, collagen and protein collected within a bone broth, from slow cooking various bones for hours and hours are easily digested and help rebuild the gut!
