We often hear about how important healthy fats are in our diet, especially with the popularity of the Paleo and Keto diets. But what if you are not digesting your fats? High fat diets can actually have some detrimental consequences if you are not properly digesting the fats you are consuming. Undigested fats can lead to leaky gut, which causes a host of symptoms, including autoimmune disorders.
This digestive tonic has 2 ingredients (beets and apple cider vinegar) that support 2 very important digestive functions: the creation and release of bile by the liver and gallbladder. And your stomach's production of acid.
According to Biotics Research, "Beets are a concentrated source of Betaine, which functions in the methylation of homocysteine, converting it into methionine and dimethylglycine....Betaine is often referred to as a “lipotropic factor” as it assists the liver in the processing of fats. Studies with betaine have correlated its use with liver protection."
According to Dr. Axe, "Apple cider vinegar is a great natural remedy [for low stomach acid] because apple cider vinegar has a very low pH in balance with your stomach."
