How Purition can support digestion & improve gut health
The digestive system (and gut) plays a major role in your health and wellbeing. It breaks down the food you eat into nutrients that your body can use for energy, growth and repair. Your gut impacts not only your immune system, but even your mood and mental health.
Here’s how Purition can help you to ‘eat for your gut’ and promote healthy digestion.
1.WHOLE FOODS ARE EASIER TO DIGEST
Made from nutritious whole foods
Eating more whole foods, but fewer processed foods, is key to healthy digestion. Eating a diverse range of plant foods leads to a more diverse gut microbiome – and that’s a good thing!
Whole foods also contain nutrients in the right ratios, which makes them easier for your body to digest and absorb. On the flip side, ultra-processed foods and shakes are harder to digest and can lead to bloating, constipation, lethargy and brain fog.
2.FIBRE IS ESSENTIAL FOR DIGESTION
High in soluble & insoluble fibre
Fibre keeps you regular and fuller for longer. It helps food move through your digestive system, which promotes regular bowel movements and prevents constipation. Fibre also increases the diversity of your gut flora, which supports digestion and all aspects of your health.
An added bonus? Due to the soluble fibre content, Purition will keep you fuller for longer and less likely to reach for processed foods, which are associated with weight gain and poor gut health.
3.PROTEIN SUPPORTS DIGESTION
Contains protein, but not too much
Your body uses protein to build digestive enzymes, which help to break down the food that you eat. Protein also helps your intestines to function at their best.
Excessive protein can have a negative effect on the digestive system. When your gut ferments excess protein, the gut bacteria release chemicals that can increase the risk of inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer.
Purition (with milk or yoghurt) typically provides 20-25g of protein per serving, which is perfectly in line with health authority recommendations.
4.MICRONUTRIENTS AID DIGESTION
Rich in natural vitamins & minerals
These essential micronutrients not only support your general health, but are also highly beneficial for digestion:
✔ Iron has been shown to support the beneficial bacteria in our microbiome
✔ Zinc supports healthy digestion through digestive enzyme production
✔ Selenium has been linked to improved gut response to inflammation
✔ Vitamin B3 is important for a multitude of digestive tract functions
✔ Vitamin B6 is needed for the digestive system to process protein
✔ Magnesium helps to minimise inflammation in the gut
5.IMPROVES THE SYMPTOMS OF IBS
Easy to digest & IBS friendly
Purition is easy to digest and won't cause bloating. It's naturally high in fibre but low in sugar, which can help to clear out bad gut bacteria whilst feeding good gut bacteria. Over time, this can help to improve the symptoms of IBS.
Purition is also:
✔ Gluten-free: We batch test and our results are always under 5 parts per million
✔ Low FODMAP: All Purition flavors (bar Pistachio) are low FODMAP friendly
✔ Ultra-low lactose: Our whey protein is triple-filtered to remove the lactose, making it much easier on the stomach
