Explanation
They are all rich in fiber. The recommended intake of fiber daily is 25-35 grams. This helps a great deal in regulating our bowel movements, and is also good for our liver and intestines.
Tips
Drink lots of water
Explanation
Water plays a key role in our digestion. It helps break down the food in our stomach, aids in dissolving nutrients, and prevents constipation. Furthermore, it helps keeps the digestive system and colon clean and healthy. So you're not only quenching your thirst when you drink water, but you're also doing your body a huge favor.
Explanation
The more unsaturated fat or transfat you consume, the more your digestive system is strained. Foods that are high in trans fat are fast food items, margarine, donuts, cookies, cakes, chips, dips, and toppings. That's all the good stuff right there. I have a sweet tooth, but I try my best to limit my sugar intake. You don't have to completely eliminate these out of your diet, but cutting them down is a way of saving your digestive organs from any damage.
Explanation
These types of food have little nutrition
in them and often contain large amounts
of saturated fats and preservatives that
hinder proper digestion.
Tips
Explanation
Eating in a rush and consuming large portions in one sitting will definitely put a lot of stress on your digestive system. That's why it's important to set aside at least a half hour during meals. Chewing will not only make you enjoy the food more, but it leads to easier digestion. So is eating in moderate portions. Almost everyone knows by now from experience that overeating will only upset the stomach.
Eat slowly and moderately
Tips
Exercise regularly
Explanation
Cardiovascular exercise helps strengthen the abdomen muscles. Also it stimulates the intestinal muscles to push digestive contents through your system, and there's no reason for you to feel sluggish and lethargic. Common cardio exercises include walking, running, walking up and down the stairs, swimming, or any activity that increases your heart rate.
Tips
Quit smoking
Explanation
Research has generated enough findings that
smoking is detrimental to your health. It
certainly can harm the digestive system,
contributing to diseases such as heartburn,
peptic ulcers, gallstones, liver damage, and
colon cancer. If you have any concern at all
regarding your body.
Tips
Explanation
Excessive alcohol intake can lead to cirrhosis
of the liver. Furthermore, it can inflame the
lining of your stomach and cause symptoms of heartburn. If you can stay off it altogether, like myself, then that's one more favor you're doing
your body.
Drink less alcohol
Tips
Explanation
Stress has a negative effect on the nerves of the digestive system, which in turn affects the process of digestion. Some experience bloating and constipation while others have to endure loose and watery stools. To return the normal balance of digestion, it is advised to face the root of the stress or manage it through relaxing activities.
