What you eat plays an enormous role in managing digestive symptoms. But many foods are specific to conditions and 'generic' advice can be contradictory. But certain themes like eating plenty of fibre, complex carbohydrates, drinking plenty of water and having a good intake of raw/lightly cooked green vegetables and fruits are key to a health digestion.

What our customers say:
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) has been used as a digestif or tea to settle the digestion after meals for centuries.
Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) was traditionally used in 'gripe waters' to soothe colic and flatulence in children.
Slippery elm (Ulmus fulva) bark powder releases a mucilage that soothes, coats and protects the walls of the intestinal tract.
Psyllium husks (Plantago ovata) act as a gentle dietary fibre. Remember to follow psyllium with a full glass of water.
