This light, yet still deliciously creamy gut friendly Panna Cotta is full of gut friendly ingredients such as gelatin, and dark chocolate.

Eating more pro-gut proteins like gelatin, collagen and organ meats is a simple way to both improve your protein intake, and give your gut a powerful healing boost on your way up to better health.
