6 nutrients that feed your microbiome, banish bloat, and keep you “regular”

The state of your digestive system is directly and immediately affected by your food choices. Here’s why Ka’Chava’s expertly formulated nutrient profile makes The Whole Body Meal your microbiome’s new BFF.

So many aspects of modern life can mess with gut health and digestion. Fortunately, honing in on the right foods and nutrients can go a long way in alleviating your GI woes. Case in point: Research by the American Gut Project suggests that the main predictor of gut health is the number plant foods in someone’s diet—people eating more than 30 different types per week had a healthier gut microbiome than people eating fewer than 10. The good news: Ka’Chava delivers fruits and veggies in spades, along with other key nutrients to keep digestion humming.

    Fiber:

    feeds the gut + promotes regularity

    Fiber is what the “good” probiotic bacteria in your gut need to feed and proliferate. What’s more, when your beneficial gut bugs break down fiber, the resulting byproducts are called short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), including butyrate, which feed the cells in your colon and enhance gut barrier function, helping prevent what’s known as “leaky gut.”1 Not to mention, the insoluble fiber found in a range of plant foods adds bulk to stool, helping ease both constipation and diarrhea (win-win!). Ka’Chava contains 9 grams of fiber per serving, or 36% of your recommended daily intake, from sources like whole grain oats, chia, flax, and inulin.

    Probiotics:

    supports gut health + promotes regularity

    A growing body of evidence shows that probiotics are beneficial for managing digestive issues like constipation, as well as diarrhea caused by taking antibiotics2. Certain strains, including L. acidophilus, have also been shown to help alleviate abdominal pain and cramping associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)3. Ka’Chava contains L. acidophilus and L. rhamnosus, along with prebiotic inulin fiber, which provides fuels for probiotic bacteria to grow and thrive.

    Vitamin D:

    alleviates gut inflammation

    Vitamin D plays a protective role in the GI tract and low levels may lead to significant gut-related ailments. In fact, around 30-40% of people with irritable bowel disease (IBD) may be vitamin D deficient4, while people with high levels of vitamin D tend to have a lower incidence of IBD, particularly Crohn’s disease, which is characterized by abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, and fatigue5. Experts believe this comes down to vitamin D’s ability to regulate intestinal inflammation. Vitamin D is primarily found in animal based food sources, but Ka’Chava contains 50% of your daily needs per serving.

    Digestive enzymes:

    helps break down food

    In an ideal world, we’d enjoy meals slowly and mindfully, chew carefully, and give our bodies the time necessary to pump out the digestive enzymes that break down food. In reality, we often scarf down our meals, catching our bodies by surprise so they’re unable to produce sufficient digestive enzymes, which can lead to bloating and diarrhea. Fortunately, Ka’Chava contains five different digestive enzymes (amylase, protease, cellulase, lactase, and lipase) to help your overworked stomach compensate and ease digestive distress.

    Magnesium:

    alleviates constipation

    Magnesium is a key nutrient for supporting optimal digestion—and if you’re prone to constipation, you’ll want to make sure you get your fill. That’s because magnesium is considered an osmotic, meaning it helps pull water into the colon, which in turn helps you poop6. Ingredients in Ka’Chava such as kale, spinach, and cocoa contain magnesium, and one serving of Ka’Chava packs 60% of your daily needs.

    Zinc:

    helps strengthen and heal the gut barrier

    Both diarrhea and irritable bowel disease (IBD) are associated with low levels of zinc, which is essential for cell turnover and repair7. But replenishing low zinc stores has been shown to improve the integrity of the intestinal lining in patients with Crohn's disease8 and reduce gut permeability (or “leaky gut”)9. Zinc is predominantly found in animal-based foods, and a few plant foods like cashews—but Ka’chava packs 52% of your daily zinc needs.
