So, we are full on lately on the matter of digestive aids. From what should be on our plate to avoid heavy digestion to remedies we can buy in our health store. It is a big issue here and now I want to bring your attention to foods that will help you digest properly. As I said before, clever eating is your best tool. Or as they say, knowledge is power!
What foods are particularly good?
Papaya---> Finish your lunch with papaya, cause it contains Papain, the enzyme to break down protein that will ease your digestion. There is so much goodness in Papaya besides the enzyme that I would say , eat it as much as you can! It is really high in vitamin A and C. And another really good thing is that it works wonders for your skin( ladies ? and guys too!) A face mask with papaya will leave your skin soft, nourished and bright because the enzymes will "eat" the dead cells, perfect for dull skin. No wonder Columbus named it Fruit of Angels
Pineapple---> Another truly amazing fruit that contains a very therapeutic enzyme called Bromelain. It is in the center where is found the most. This enzyme is particularly good again to digest your beefsteak, cause it will break down the protein. It is also anti-inflammatory and diuretic. All this only if you eat it fresh! Canned or cooked pineapple does not count.
Live Yogurt and Kefir--->Full of Probiotics. What are they?They are Bacterias. The beneficial ones to ensure a healthy bowel and strong immune system. Fat free probiotic yogurt(without fruits) can be also helpful to alleviate heartburn, so this is another wonderful idea to finish a meal that has given you acidity.
Fermented cabbage (or Sauerkraut) ---> Same as above! Eating raw fermented cabbage adds probiotics to your meal.
Sprouts (bean sprouts like soy bean, alfalfa..)--->0.Adding germinated seeds to our salad is extremely healthy cause we add a good amount of enzymes that are found in the sprouts. Those enzymes will help our body in the digestion process as well as in the neutralization of toxins.
