This is my daily gut support shake. It is not designed to be a meal replacement but could be had with breakfast or as it's own drink anytime during the day. The purpose of the drink is to deliver the benefits of collagen which help repair leaky gut and support healthy joints, skin, hair and nails. It is also a vehicle for high polyphenol foods like ginger powder, cloves or cacoa that feed good bacteria in the gut and help with weight balance and gut biome health overall. The resveratrol offers benefits to the immune system and gut (see article here and webinar here on resveratrol and the coronviruses). The MyCommunity Extract contains 17! different mushroom species to help the exhausted immune system.
Add an avocado or almond butter and your favorite milk (instead of water) to make it more of a meal.
