In his latest book, Super Gut, Dr. William Davis blows my mind as he teaches his readers about gut health and the absolute necessities to heal, maintain, and build a healthy gut.
My obsession with gut health has led me on a journey to discover all the things that Mother Nature provides us when it comes to creating and cultivating a healthy gut.
If you're reading this, then I imagine that you know very well the importance of gut health.
This combination of cloves, green tea, and the prebiotic inulin, provides the gut with an elixir that helps repair, rebuild, and maintain the intestinal mucus barrier that keeps pathogens and other health-compromising elements out of our blood stream.
From his book he writes, "this tea combines the mucus-increasing effect of eugenol oil from cloves, the mucus protein cross-linking effect of green tea catechins, and the Akkermansia growth-stimulating effects of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) (aka. inulin)."
These three ingredients together create a gut-healing tonic that I consume daily.
It's super important to source tea bags not made with toxic and chemical infused compounds.
I prefer these brands if you are going with tea bags:
Tazo Tea - Source organic options
Traditional Medicinals - Source organic options
Yogi Tea - Source organic
Next let's talk about inulin. Inulin is a prebiotic, the food good probiotics need to grow and flourish. It is tasteless and easy to add to your morning cup of coffee, smoothies, soups, and almost anything with liquid.
Be mindful to begin using small amounts of inulin as too much can cause digestive discomfort. Start with small amounts like 1/4 tsp and work your way up to 1 tsp.
Do not continue using if you develop stomach issues or excessive gassiness. If this is the case it could be wise to be checked for SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) or SIFO (small intestine fungal overgrowth).
Let's get to making this beautifully powerful tea!
