Foods that are rich in antioxidants and probiotics can help activate your immune system to help fight infections such as H.pylori that can cause stomach ulcers.

Antioxidants and Flavonoids

Studies have shown that the prevalence of stomach ulcers increases with age. 70% of stomach ulcers is caused by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, or H. pylori. Most ulcers caused by H. pylori are completely treatable. But untreated stomach ulcers can lead to more serious problems, like internal bleeding and stomach cancer. 

If your stomach ulcer is caused by an H. pylori infection, foods that are rich in antioxidants may be beneficial. Antioxidants found in bright coloured fruits and vegetables can help activate your immune system and help combat a H. pylori infection. Read our latest article to learn more about stomach ulcers.

Flavonoids are a phytonutrient found in certain fruits such as berries which can help protect the stomach lining by defending the lining of the stomach and allowing ulcers to heal. In one laboratory study, extracts of various berries inhibited the growth of H. pylori. (4) Also probiotics found in fermented foods such as kefir can also help. Studies have shown that probiotics may be helpful in wiping out H. pylori. The best bacteria to help do this includes LactobacillusBifidobacterium, and Saccharomyces.

Keto Lemonade

Who doesn’t like lemonade?

Whether you’re managing the “keto flu”, on the keto diet for the long-haul, need to rehydrate after a heavy workout, or are just looking for a refreshing summertime beverage that isn’t full of sugar — this Keto Lemonade is the perfect option! 

Most store-bought or restaurant lemonade is chock-full of sugar in order to allow its sweet flavour to balance the sour flavour from the lemons. By making your own lemonade at home you’re in control of the sweetener!

Stevia (liquid) is the sweeter of choice in this recipe. Stevia has 0 calories, no sugar, and a powerful sweet flavour — meaning you only need a few drops! Plus, stevia liquid drops have a less metallic taste than the powdered form.

Lemon juice is a low-carb, natural source of electrolytes such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and trace amounts of sodium. Just make sure you squeeze it fresh for the best flavour and the densest nutrients!

Sea salt is an important addition to this lemonade recipe, as it offers an additional boost of electrolytes to help you rehydrate. If you’ve been exercising, enjoying the outdoors in warm weather, or if you’re doing your best to get through the “keto flu”, the sea salt in this recipe can help address dehydration just like the minerals in your favourite sports drink.

Give it a try! Quench your thirst this summer with this restorative Keto Lemonade recipe.

Virgin Bloody Mary: A Mocktail That Supports Weight Loss

Virgin Bloody Mary: A Mocktail That Supports Weight Loss

Crispy Coconut Chicken Fingers Recipe Koru Nutrition

Believe it or not, a Virgin Bloody Mary is a great weight-loss drink. You could even call it a Skinny Bloody Mary.

This drink contains citric, malic and oxalic acid which accelerate your metabolism and can help filter out fatty deposits from the body. It also contains lycopene which can help increase metabolism up to one third.

Your celery stick only contains 3 calories. Even with minimal calories, celery can help flush fat out of your system, and can help regulate fluid balance to rid the body of excess fluid that might be giving you a puffy look.

A pinch of cayenne pepper stimulates metabolism by 20% and helps to clean fat out from arteries.

Black peppercorns can promote digestion and relives intestinal gas and bloating, helps liver function (your key fat burning organ) and stimulates breakdown of fat cells.

Horseradish helps liver to get rid of toxins in the body, aids in weight loss, and helps with digestion.

We’re suggesting a virgin mocktail, but if you are going the non-virgin route and adding vodka, here is what you need to know: Vodka contains nothing other than ethanol and water. This means that vodka has pretty much no nutritional value. There are no sugar, carbs, fibre, cholesterol, fat, sodium, vitamins, or minerals in vodka.

All of the calories come from the alcohol itself. The more concentrated your vodka is (the higher the proof), the more calories it contains. The “proof” is a number that refers to the percent of alcohol in the liquor. You can figure out the percent by dividing the proof in half. For example, 100 proof is 50 percent alcohol, while 80 proof is 40 percent alcohol.

The calorie content is generally the same between different brands of vodka that are that same proof. Kettle One, Smirnoff, Grey Goose, Skyy, and Absolut vodka, for example, are all 80 proof vodkas and each contain 96 calories per 1.5-ounce shot, or 69 calories per ounce.

Next time you find yourself craving a drink, give this one a try!
