How can I improve gut health/absorption?

Struggle to get food down and suffer from indigestion a fair bit. I've tried Ravenous and it does help but I can't afford that every month.

I use the cheap Sauerkraut in the Polish section in most major supermarkets. It's full of pro and pre biotic's which will help with digestion.

How much fibre are you eating?

The cheap sauerkraut doesn’t contain any of the pre/probiotic benefits off the shelf, which is why you need to find either a polish deli or make it yourself which is cheap to do

Yogurt.
Digestive enzymes.

But mainly try different foods.
I don't eat stuff that bags me up or gives me gas. It's a sign that it isn't for you.
Make better choices.

My carbs all come from oats and rice. I have eaten up to 1kg a day of both (experimenting with Cal's and carb amounts) with zero digestive issues.

Beef is my favourite meat. For me it digests and clears my stomach easily. Fish too but it's tasteless in this country.
So I can eat it more often.
As opposed to lamb, which sits in my stomach for hours. Always feel stupidly full.

So pick what suits.
Add active yogurt (always a deal on with them, £1 or less for 500ml tubs, onkyen or something similar IIRC)
Digestive enzymes (my protein powder contains this but it can be bought separately.)

Any unpasteurized sauerkraut will have some probiotic properties

Prebiotics are more effective for gut health than pro, if I’m correct. I think raw asparagus is meant to be quite effective for gut health? Maybe some oil and salt wouldn’t go amiss...
