4 Herbs for Gut Health

Your gut doesn’t lie. It gives you that “gut feeling” when something isn’t quite right, “growls” when you’re hungry and gives you that “upset tummy” feeling when there’s something not quite right in your body. The gut is also sensitive to emotion.  If you’re upset or worried you often don’t feel like eating and vice versa.  If you are not feeling well in the tummy, then you can feel sad, upset, worried, anxious, irritated – a range of negative emotions. The gut-brain connection is now widely recognised and for good reason. Around 95% of the brains serotonin receptors are located in your bowel!  So it makes sense that if your gut is not feeling right, it will ultimately affect your mood.  This is another reason why it is so...

NOT ALL Probiotics are the SAME….

You all know you need probiotics after antibiotics but do you really know why or whether you are even taking the right one? Most people walk into their chemist or health food store and grab a bottle out of the fridge and expect that they will fix their problem. But do you really know what strain it is that you’re taking or realise that not all strains of probiotics treat the same issue.  Rather, different strains are applicable for different situations. Here’s a quick rundown on why you need probiotics and what strain you possibly should be taking.  When you hear the word “gut instinct” you assume it’s just a saying. But in actual fact 71% of your brain’s serotonin levels are created in the gut. So, to keep...

Chicken Bone Broth

45584740 - chicken broth, clear soup, stock is cooked in a pan

This is a very old and simple (yet such an effective and tasty) healing recipe for the gastrointestinal tract (which includes the stomach and the intestines).  The bones, marrow skin and tendons contain Collagen and Amino Acids (Proline & Glycine).   Therefore it is an incredibly important addition to any treatment regime for disorders such as Leaky Gut Syndrome, Gastric Ulcers, Reflux, Heartburn and any other conditions associated with GUT inflammation.  A side note to this wonderful healing recipe is that as Collagen supports your Connective Tissue it can help to create youthful, glowing, supple-looking skin.

Any type of marrow bones can be purchased but ensure that they are organic or at least grass-fed, free range.  It doesn’t matter whether they are beef or chicken.  This recipe is done with a whole chicken and can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days or frozen to be pulled out and defrosted when needed.

Bone broth can be consumed as it is (one glass or more daily – preferable gently warmed before drinking!), used as a base for soups, casseroles or any recipes that requires chicken or beef stock.  A great idea if you are going to freeze for this reason is to pour the stock into ice cube trays before freezing so that you can pop out the cubes when needed!

Another handy tip is that bone broths are really easy to cook in a Slow Cooker.  Just put all the ingredients in and let cook throughout the day while you go about your daily business.
