Gut Healing Mushroom Miso

Spring is an ideal time to prepare our digestive system for the raw, cool foods of summer. Adding nourishing miso soups and sipping broths this time of year is an easy way to fortify your inner terrain. Sipping broths are nutrient-rich and reparative to the digestive tract. Add in of medicinal mushrooms and seaweeds for deeper support.  

This gut-healing sipping broth calls on miso- a fermented soybean paste jam-packed with probiotics. We like adding a dash of our 5 Mushroom Concentrated Powder to ramp up the tummy-loving benefits of miso. This medley of functional mushrooms features Turkey Tail and Reishi and is packed with prebiotics and immune-supportive polysaccharides for digestive health.  

Try this comforting mushroom miso to feel supported from within.
