Janella’s Cleanse Week: RESISTANT STARCH.

Are white rice and potatoes back on the menu? Your colon (large intestine) is one good way to eliminate toxins from your body. So you want to keep it healthy.

Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid (SCFA) that’s important for protecting the gut from inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

A healthy micro biome is critical to healthy levels of butyrate, as gut bugs make butyrate by fermenting certain types of fibre.

Particularly powerful is ‘resistant’ starch, (RS) found in seeds, legumes, whole grains, cold potatoes and cold white rice, unripe bananas, asparagus, globe artichokes and just about any vegetable.

(Of course the diet needs to be customized to the person, and not all forms of resistant starch will be indicated based on other factors such as glycemic index, the presence of bacteria in the small intestine (SIBO), and food sensitivities. #Buyrate
