【HEALTHY GUT RECIPE】Postbiotic Kiwi Chia Water

Today, we're going to share the recipe for a refreshing and gut-friendly beverage: Postbiotic Kiwi Chia Water, using R's KOSO. 

Did you know that kiwi fruits and chia seeds are not only delicious but also packed with benefits for gut health?

Golden kiwi fruits contain almost three times more vitamin C than oranges and strawberries. Vitamin C helps absorb iron, supports the immune system, and plays an important role in collagen production. 

Kiwi fruits are also high in fiber. 

Soluble fiber in kiwi fruits is broken down by bacteria in the gut. This process produces short-chain fatty acids, such as acetate, propionate, and butyrate, which provide several health benefits, including nourishing the cells lining the colon, reducing inflammation, and supporting immune function.

Insoluble fiber in kiwi fruits adds bulk to stool, helps prevent constipation, and promotes regular bowel movements.

Chia seeds are packed with fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids that we should get from foods as our body cannot produce. 

Omega-3 fatty acids can change the composition and quantity of gut bacteria, impacting the diversity and balance of the microbiota present in the gut.

They can also affect the levels of proinflammatory substances like endotoxins (lipopolysaccharides) and interleukin-17 (IL17), thereby reducing inflammation in the gut.

Moreover, omega-3 fatty acids can regulate the levels of short-chain fatty acids or short-chain fatty acid salts, which play crucial roles in gut health and immune function.

R's KOSO is made from a blend of over 100 kinds of whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, and seaweed. It is fermented for over 1 year in Japan. R's KOSO contains nutrients such as probiotics, prebiotics, postbiotics, polyphenols, and amino acids that support a healthy gut and overall well-being. 

Try this recipe today to give your gut the love and care it deserves.
