My favourite gut-healing food would be GHEE. Ghee also is known as clarified butter, has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda for cooking and religious ceremonies, as well as therapeutically, both internally and externally.
Ghee is made from butter, but has gone through a clarification process which strips away the parts of butter that are the most difficult to digest, such as lactose, casein, and whey proteins.
Ghee improves digestion by enhancing the absorption in the small intestine and decreases the acidic pH of our gastrointestinal tract. It contains butyric acid which can protect against damaging cell growth in the colon.
According to Ayurveda, drinking a teaspoon of ghee in the morning on an empty stomach treats the body like rasa. It improves the process of cell rejuvenation which helps in the healing process of the body.
Benefits of consuming ghee include
✨Heals and repairs the gut
✨Improves skin and hair
✨Slows the ageing process
✨Naturally lubricates the joints
I have it in the morning on an empty stomach, cook with it and sometimes use it as an overnight lip treatment during winter.
