GRAINS – most are pretty difficult to digest properly especially the refined kind. There are a few reasons for this but one reason is the LECTINS they contain, and they’re in wheat, rice, spelt and soy as well. In small amounts they seem to be ok for some of us but once they become a daily habit – then not so good.
But wait, there is a loop hole – sprouting and fermenting grains (and soy) reduces lectins, making these foods easier to digest. GMO and hybridized foods tend to be the highest in lectins, and on top of this, gluten–containing grains will damage your intestinal lining and cause leaky gut syndrome.
Lifestream ‘Advanced Digestive Enzymes’ is a great way to support your digestion and get the most nutrient absorption out of your food. I also prescribe lifestreams AloeVera and BowelBiotics for good gut health.
