Figs: Brain & Gut Food

Figs: Brain & Gut Food

If you’re seeking answers for brain and gut health, look no further than the fig. It’s the ultimate tool for balancing these two intertwined aspects of well-being. Figs have unique phytochemicals that are bonded to minerals such as bioavailable potassium and sodium that specifically nourish and build neurotransmitters while also supporting neurons and synapses in the brain. It’s a powerful fruit for helping to prevent Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, and other neurological diseases, including ALS.

On the intestinal side, figs are, like dates, one of the most effective bowel-cleansing foods on the planet. The skins feed good gut bacteria and are also antiseptic, killing unproductive gut bacteria, parasites, mold, and toxic heavy metals, while the seeds get into intestinal crevices and help destroy disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and fungus that hide in those pockets. The fruit’s pulp and fiber massage the intestinal lining and build up the digestive immune system to help you stop struggling with stomach pain and bloating.

Figs help with all types of gut problems, including diverticulitis, appendix inflammation, constipation, inflamed colon, and complications from C. difficile.

Figs are high in vitamins such as the B vitamins, which are specifically bonded to phytochemicals to reduce radiation in the body. Also abundant in trace minerals, micronutrients, antioxidants, and more, figs are a wonder food for all manner of ills; they should never be overlooked. The next time you’re dealing with any health issue, think of figs as a secret weapon.

How To Use:

To connect with everything figs can offer you, both nutrient-wise and metaphysically, try to eat nine figs in a day (or a multiple of nine). Munching on a celery stick (rich in mineral salts) with each fig you eat is a perfect nutritional combination.
