Have you heard of Kombu? Like most people, you are probably thinking “what’s Kombu“?
I use Kombu in soups that include beans, lentils or lots of cruciferous vegetables as it improves digestion and reduces gas. It really works, no tummy aches for me!! Just crumble it in. Check out my “Anti-Inflammatory Pumpkin Lentil Soup” recipe using Kombu. It’s delicious and you really can’t taste the Kombu.
In my opinion, Kombu sticks look like beef jerky and I buy mine on Amazon, but you can also find in your local health food store.

As an added bonus, Kombu may improve thyroid function as it’s full of iodine, and according to Draxe.com the iron content in Kombu helps prevent both iron deficiency and anemic symptoms.
Here’s where I ordered mine!
