Ulcerative Colitis Diet
Cabbage is a remarkable remedy for helping ulcerative colitis and other intestinal conditions, healing stomach ulcers and duodenal ulcers. It is the vitamin U (S-mehtylmethionine) that does it, and cabbage has copious amounts.
It is also a super source of vitamins C, A and K. Vitamin K assists with improving intestinal function and ultimately decreases inflammation. All aid the proper functioning of the immune system, too.
With basil, coriander, parsley, sweet potato, zucchini (and all of the rest of the ingredients) delivering more inflammation-reducing compounds and detoxifying effects on the digestive tract, this is a wonderful soup to support optimum health for your body.
Soothing and warming, delighting the tastebuds, nourishing your gut and mind, you can feel the healing benefits the moment you start eating.
Enjoy your soup in a mindful way and maximize the healing!
