Get Your Gut In Check
Gut health has become a priority for many in the last couple of years. Fermented foods, kombucha and probiotics have taken the market by storm in search of a healthy microbiome. One food that’s incredibly helpful in maintaining a healthy gut is flax!
Writer Lauren Wicks shares, “Flaxseeds are often considered prebiotics, or “probiotic food,” due to their high fiber content. And in the body, prebiotic foods get broken down in the gut and end up providing good bacteria to the gut's microbiome, which has been linked to digestion, immunity, mood, and weight loss.”
An abstract in The American Journal of Physiology shares that “Flaxseed fibers improve metabolism,” and everybody wants a good metabolism.
This is exactly why at Malibu Mylk we use the whole ground flaxseed in all of our milks. There are approximately 4 tbs of the whole ground flaxseed in every single bottle. Add it to baked goods, coffee, smoothies, cereal, or even mashed potatoes and know you’re doing your gut a favor!
