Resistant Starch and Chinese yam to the rescue for your gut! 

I’ve been drinking resistant potato starch (not potato flour!) everyday for the past few years and I would to know share this secret with you, I also just recently added Chinese yam (Shan yao) to the mix.

It’s not a carbohydrate and it is digested very differently to food. It’s a special form of fibre that is converted into fat and feeds good cells and bacteria similar to a prebiotic.

It’s a little bit hard to get the correct amount from foods but the following foods do contain some of it….green bananas, raw potatoes, cold rice, plantains. I think its much easier taken as a supplement powder.

A superfood for your gut!!

Benefits of the two powders: 

  • Gut healing
  • It feeds good bacteria
  • Weight loss
  • Cell repairing
  • Levels blood sugar / hormone imbalance / insulin resistance
  • Great for auto immune conditions
  • Low carb high fat food
  • Heals intestines and colon
  • Lowers PH levels of our digestive system
  • Satisfies hunger
  • Stimulates digestive blood flow
  • Inhibits growth of bad bacteria
  • Strengthens and nourishes your spleen and kidneys
  • Soothes and regulates sleep
  • Tones your Qi
  • Helps with menstruation and bladder issues

Method and use : 

  • Start slowly with 1/4 teaspoon a day then work up to 3 times a day and then increase to 1/2 teaspoon on an empty stomach and before meals.
  • You will see results within 2 days.
  • Must be diluted into water or a smoothie, into cool or cold water or tepid water. No hot water.
  • I used Bob’s red mill brand found on Iherb. Iherb Discount Code: QWV374
  • Shan Yao (Chinese yam) is inexpensive and found in all grocery / Chinese medicine stores in Hong Kong / asian markets around the world.
  • I grind them up in my blender and mix the powders together for easy consumption.
