1. Chai: When it comes to chai, the milk with lactose and casein in it is the problem. Many people can’t properly digest lactose, and this undigested lactose reaches the colon; it gets fermented by bacteria, causing gas, bloating, and diarrhoea. Casein in milk can sometimes cause an immune response in the gut. This can lead to inflammation and damage the gut lining, making it easier for harmful substances to enter the bloodstream and worsen gut health. (Instagram/@kirti7s) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

3. Bread: The main reason we shouldn’t be reaching for bread first thing in the morning is because of its starchy nature. When our stomachs are empty, starchy food such as bread can cause a significant glucose spike and majorly affect our body’s process of digesting not only the bread itself but our meal afterwards. (Unsplash/@Pixzolo) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

4. Electrolytes: Store-bought electrolytes often have artificial sweeteners and not the very best ones. Please avoid artificial sweeteners like sucrose, acesulfame potassium, and dextrose when choosing an electrolyte drink. Artificial sweeteners can interfere with your good gut bacteria and lead to an imbalance which causes digestive issues.  expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
