When it comes to looking and feeling our absolute best, healthy digestion is truly the foundation for True Wellness. What we put into our bodies directly impacts the way we think, act, and feel. When we aren’t absorbing the beneficial nutrients in the foods we are eating, we can experience a myriad of belly woes.

When your digestive system cries out for help, it’s time to focus on restoring and re-balancing your flora as a friend not a foe. Fortunately, ORGANIC INDIA has a variety of products to aid in promoting digestive health. Not only are these products non-GMO project verified, they are made with certified organic herbs.

Amalaki: Also referred to as “Amla” in India, this beneficial superfruit has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. It provides the body with a natural source of vitamin C that is easy to digest. Amalaki has traditionally been used to provide rejuvenation for the entire body.It also has been show to aid in detoxifying the digestive system and the GI tract while reducing acidity and balancing pH levels. ORGANIC INDIA Amalaki is a wonderful product for not only promoting proper digestion, but for contributing to overall wellness throughout the body. Try taking one capsule a day with food for optimal digestive support.

Turmeric: This herb has been getting a lot of press lately and for good reason! Turmeric has been one of the most studied botanicals in modern science due to the amazing properties it possesses. Traditionally, it has been used for promoting heart health, immune function and joint mobility and support. But did you know that Turmeric can also aid in keeping our digestive system healthy? That’s because it is considered a bitter that can easily be incorporated into a variety of foods, especially with the help of ORGANIC INDIA Turmeric Lift packets; perfectly individually portioned to add to your favorite smoothie, salad, or soup! If cooking isn’t your thing, try taking Turmeric in supplement form. ORGANIC INDIA's Turmeric Formula is fortified with curcuminoid extract and organic ginger to make this herb’s goodness more bio-available to your body. I recommend taking one or two capsules a day to aid in keeping your digestive system in tip-top shape.

Psyllium: One of my morning smoothie ingredient staples, ORGANIC INDIA Whole Husk Psyllium, is a convenient way to incorporate fiber into your daily diet. Our bodies need fiber not only to promote proper digestion, but to aid in regular elimination. There isn’t anything worse than feeling “backed-up” and psyllium is a great way to keep things moving! ORGANIC INDIA Whole Husk Psyllium is 100% certified organic and does not contain any synthetic ingredients. It contains both soluble and insoluble fiber to support the health of the entire gastrointestinal system. Try adding a tablespoon of this product to your next juice or morning smoothie recipe. You can also conveniently take ORGANIC INDIA Psyllium Lift packets with you on the go to add a boost of nourishing and gut-friendly fiber to any recipe!

Triphala: One of the oldest and most renowned herbs in Ayurvedic medicine, Triphala has been shown to aid in cleansing and toning the entire GI tract. It also works to promote regular elimination while improving our body’s natural ability to assimilate nutrients. Like Amalaki, Triphala is a wonderful source of vitamin C and other antioxidants to help fight off damaging free radicals. ORGANIC INDIA Triphala is made with only fruit pulp and contains a nourishing blend of three Ayurvedic superfruits: Amalaki, Bibhitaki and Haritaki. This trio of herbs are commonly used in Ayurveda to promote overall digestive wellness! Best of all, ORGANIC INDIA Triphala capsules are gluten-free and vegan friendly. Try taking one or two capsules first thing in the morning before breakfast. Your gut will thank you!

Trikatu: Traditionally used to support digestion and overall gastric function, Trikatu is made from Long Pepper, Black Pepper and Ginger. Trikatu means “three peppers” or “three pungents,” referring to the strong and bitter taste of these herbs. These three herbs work together to stimulate what Ayurveda refers to as agni, or “digestive fire.” This allows for easier digestion in the stomach while promoting proper bile flow. Trikatu is gentle on the body and works efficiently to help the digestive tract absorb nutrients and remove wastes. I recommend taking Trikatu at least 15 minutes before your meal, especially if you plan on a hearty meal containing foods that may be difficult to digest.
