Beetroot, Sweet Potato & Artichoke Soup

A delicious, gut healthy, beetroot soup. Artichokes contain a powerful prebiotic polysaccharide called Inulin. It is not digested in the small intestine but is devoured by healthy gut bacteria in the large intestine which is great for a healthy gut. Sweet potato and beetroot contains fibre which pushes gut contents along its journey through the digestive system and can be of benefit during any constipation or bloating issues.
