Digestion is something we can’t live without, literally, we can’t live without it. Digestion, good and bad, affects our energy, our growth, and, of course, our overall health, good and bad.
Keeping our digestive system healthy is crucial, because it breaks down food so our body can absorb the nutrients it needs.
All right, take notes, because here are some tips.
First, eat a high fiber diet, one full of whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
High fiber will keep things, well, moving and prevent constipation. Good digestion can prevent diseases like diverticulitis and help maintain a healthy weight.
If you are a meat eater, choose lean meats, like turkey and pork loin. If you like red meat, choose something that doesn’t have a lot of fat.
Lean meats digest easily. Fatty foods taste mighty good, but they slow down the digestive process, and that’s can make you feel uncomfortably full and backed up.
Now, probiotics might sound like something out of science fiction, but they are basically healthy bacteria found naturally in our guts. You can also find them in foods like yogurt. They help ease digestion and fight any bad bacteria that might get in our bodies.
Think of them kinda like the Batman and Robin of bacteria.
Finally, drink lots of water. It helps dissolve fats. Drinking water and exercising regularly will keep things moving smoothly. And that’s some digestive food for thought.
