3 smoothie supplements for a healthier gut and fight inflammation
You may be familiar with turmeric in the form of golden milk, chana masala or spicy ginger shots, but you can also add it to your mix à la carte.
Turmeric will not only add a wonderful golden hue to your drink, but also soothing for digestion1 and the general state of the intestines.*
In fact, a 2020 scientific review from Nutrients shows that curcumin (the main active ingredient in turmeric) even helps promote a healthy gut microbiome2 supporting the growth of beneficial strains of bacteria.* So try to have a golden smoothie every now and then.
I’ve made a fair amount of turmeric smoothies in my life (I used to work at a smoothie shop) and I’ll tell you that it doesn’t go well with every fruit or vegetable. My tip: if you’re going to add this root to your mix, be sure to pair it with a sweet counterpart like mango, orange, or pineapple.
