Having Digestive Issues—Go Natural and Try Ghee
Ghee is the Indian version of clarified butter with most of the lactose, milk fats and sugars removed. It offers several health benefits including healing the digestive tract. The butter is rich in butyric acid, which helps sustain the intestinal cells and encourages the production of stomach acids to break down food. Plus, storing it is easy. It will not become rancid at room temperatures and can stay fresh up to a year. Some studies have even linked ghee to helping to maintain healthy insulin levels and fighting off inflammation. You can find ghee at specialty markets.
