Foods to Aid Digestion

An amazingly tasty meal of digestion-loving, nutrient-rich ingredients.

Eggplants contain fibre for digestion but also antioxidants (Chlorogenic acid) that enables the slow release of glucose into the bloodstream, and (nasunin) protects the heart.

Coriander is a wonderful detoxifier, removing heavy metals from the body. It contains cancer-fighting properties and balances blood sugar levels.

Magnesium from the tahini, assists in the formation of prostaglandins (hormone-like compounds found in all tissues) and controlling histamine levels. Calcium is present in tahini too, which is vital for the immune.

The distinct, amazing tasting truffle-enhanced oil is highly nutritional. Truffles are so rich in bioactive compounds that are anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antimicrobial and antidiabetic and contain protein, fibre, fatty acids, amino acids, minerals and carbohydrates.

For thousands of years, from one of the oldest cultivated fruits, pomegranate seeds have been valued for their antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties.

If you decide on using pomegranate seeds, you will be dosing yourself up with some isoflavones and other micronutrients.

Isoflavones are wonderful for hormonal disorders, several cancer types, cardiovascular diseases and osteoporosis.

Another potent and delicious EBS recipe that looks pretty, too. Enjoy!
