Nine Tips for Good Digestive Health

Digestive health depends not only on what you eat but how you eat. Here are some tips for good digestive health.
  1. Do your stomach a favor and chew your food slowly and properly. That sends a signal to your stomach to secrete acids and enzymes to be ready to break down the food when it arrives. Gulping down your food bombards your stomach with oversized food particles before the digestive juices are flowing and your stomach will have a hard time breaking it all down. That mass of barely digested food becomes a feast for parasites and bad gut bacteria when hits your small intestines.
  2. Eliminate processed foods and refined carbohydrates.
  3. Fill up on fiber-rich food sources, including yams, green vegetables, legumes and gluten-free grains.
  4. Introduce fermented, probiotic-rich foods into your diet, including yogurt, kefir, kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut and miso.
  5. Add healthy, plant-based fats from organic coconut, sesame seed, sunflower seed and flaxseed oils to your diet.
  6. Replenish your digestive enzymes and take probiotic supplements. They will help you rebuild the healthy bacteria so essential to good gut health.
  7. Introduce key nutrients in your diet, including zinc, omega-3 fish oils, vitamin A, C, and E.
  8. Limit sugar, dairy, gluten and alcohol consumption.
  9. Do not eat when you’re stressed out and stop eating when you’re no longer hungry.

Be nice to your digestive system, and it will be nice to you!
