Notes and Inspiration
Kiwi fruit contains an enzyme called actinidin which helps aid digestion and the absorption of nutrients. Kiwi fruit also works as a prebiotic for your gut. Prebiotics are high-fibre foods that stimulate the favourable growth of probiotic bacteria in the gut and help rebuild the natural levels of good bacteria that your body needs.
Bananas are recommended for easing both constipation and diarrhoea. In one study involving female participants, eating two bananas each day for two months led to significant increases in Bifidobacteria (good bacteria). Along with these increased levels of Bifidobacteria, participants also experienced fewer gastrointestinal problems and more regular bowel function.
