Ingredients:

Lemongrass: Lemongrass not only smells and tastes great, but it also has some added benefits that support your digestive tract. It’s been known to help treat things such as the common stomachache, to digestive tract spasms, and can be used to kill germs.

Ginger: Ginger has always been known as a natural ingredient that helps with so many ailments. For starters, it helps with the gastrointestinal motility which is the rate that food exits the stomach and continues along the digestive process. Eating ginger encourages efficient digestion so food doesn’t sit and linger too long in your gut.

Other ways I support my gut health

Outside of using gut-healthy ingredients like ginger, and lemongrass in my cooking, I also love to take ION* Gut Support in my daily routine. ION* seals cells in the gut lining, helping to keep toxins out of your body and strengthening the terrain upon which your microbiome can diversify. In turn, this helps with things like immune function, digestion, mental clarity, and metabolism.

What’s wild to me that I learned through ION* is that on a daily basis, we’re exposed to more than 80,000 chemicals and toxic substances. This Gut Support can help strengthen the integrity of the gut lining and protect the immune and neurologic systems. This product is seriously such an easy way to make sure your gut is supported and healthy.

On top of incorporating ION* into my regular, daily routine, some other ways I try to improve my gut health are by:

  • Eating lots of veggies, legumes, beans, and fruit
  • Eating fermented foods (like yogurt, tempeh, and miso)
  • Eating prebiotic foods (like onions, bananas, and garlic)
  • Adding whole grains into my diet
  • Having a plant-forward diet

Expert Tips & FAQ:

What is the most popular Thai soup? Tom Yum soup is the most popular Thai soup. It is a traditional sour, salty and spicy flavor found in lots of Thai dishes.

What is the Thai version of pho? Boat noodle soup. Boat noodles both contain pork and beef they are each seasoned with a dark soy sauce and nam tok. Nam tok is cow or pig’s blood mixed with salt. Very much not vegetarian or vegan friendly. 😉

What gives Thai soup its flavor? Fish sauce, curry paste, tamari, and lime are usually where you’ll get that hit of flavor from.

Why is Thai soup so good? It’s really the perfect combination of the ingredients and flavors that make Thai soup so damn good. Simmering things like lemongrass, and ginger in broth really brings out the oils and flavors.
