Ghee, or clarified grass-fed butter, helps balance the microbiome in the digestive tract. Ghee is rich in butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid.
Beneficial intestinal bacteria convert fiber into butyric acid and then use that for energy and intestinal wall support. Use ghee to cook and fry foods such as pancakes and vegetable stir-fry. Ghee has a high smoke point (482°F), and it will not break down into free radicals like many other oils.
To maintain healthy digestion and prevent future bouts of indigestion, make sure to maintain a diet that is high in fiber, probiotics, and omega-3s and eat living enzymes that come from fresh fruit such as papaya.
You can easily incorporate digestion-boosting foods into your everyday diet. Try these Ginger Ahi Tuna Lettuce Wraps.
