#1 Bone Broth – broth contains collagen and the amino acids proline and glycine that can help heal your damaged cell walls. You can drink bone broth as you wish to assist with gut healing.

#2 Raw Cultured Dairy – contains both probiotics and SCFA’s that can help heal the gut.  Pastured kefir, yogurt, amasai, butter, and raw cheese are some of the best.

 

 

#3 Fermented Vegetables – contain organic acids that balance intestinal pH and probiotics to support the gut.  Sauerkraut, Kimchi, and Kvass are excellent sources.

 

 

#4 Coconut Products – all coconut products are especially good for your gut.  The MCFA’s in coconut are easier to digest than other fats so better for leaky gut.  Also, coconut kefir contains probiotics that support your digestive system.

 

#5 Sprouted or Activated Seeds & Nuts – chia seeds, flaxseeds, and hemp seeds that have been sprouted are great sources of fibre that can help support the growth of beneficial bacteria.

 

Also, consuming foods that have anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fats are beneficial such as grass-fed beef, lamb, and wild caught fish like salmon.

We strongly advise you to take a look at Lee Holmes book – Heal your Gut for recipes and visit the pantries of What Can I Eat as there are many suppliers manufacturing good quality Activated Nuts/Seeds, Coconut products, Broths and more here in Australia.
