Health Facts
For those who are working on improving their digestive system, soup is a great option. Compromised digestive systems may contribute to difficulty breaking down foods. This can be a huge issue when trying to achieve your desired level of optimal health because if foods cannot be adequately broken down, your body can not obtain the nutrients from the foods. In fact if the body is unable to completely break down starchy carbohydrates, food will begin to ferment in the stomach and become a feeding ground for "bad" bacteria such as Candida Albicans. When bacteria such as Candida overpopulates within the intestinal system, symptoms include extreme sugar cravings, weight gain, bloating, pain in the body and so much more which can make achieving your best body ever very challenging. With all of that being said, soup is a great way to get your nutrients in as it is easy for the body to breakdown and it supports optimal intestinal health!
