• Phytonutrients – Carotenoids, beta-carotene and antioxidants that add additional help to the body.
• Fiber – Soluble fiber to feed the microbes which then allows it to exchange back the beneficial fatty acids like the butyric acid which then feed the colon cells and also helps improve insulin resistance.
• Buffers pH – The vegetables will also buffer the acidic pH from the consumed meat.
