Improve Your Digestion
Have you never come across that bloating sound in
your stomach, or hot burning sensation rising in
your chest after a meal? However if these havocs
cross your tummy often, with at least more than
once a week, its time that you need to listen
this alarm. Eating good food alone is not
sufficient for good health. Good digestion is
what utilizes the energy present in the food and
provides it to the body so as to nurture and
energize it. Salivation and bacteria in the gut
play significant role in the process of digestion.
Here are some easy ways which will definitely
strengthen your guts with improved digestion.
  • Keep your Gut Hydrated
  • Dont irritate your Gut
  • Choose High-Fiber Diet
  • Nurture the Gut with Probiotics
  • Limit Intake of Fatty Foods
  • Bad Habits Learn to Say NO
  • Add Exercises to your Daily Routine
  • Keep your Stress Levels Low

3
Keep your Gut Hydrated
Our body is made up of a large volume of water.
To meet the bodys water requirement, we should
be drinking at least 3 liters of water daily.
This will ensure that our digestive system is
well-hydrated.  Hence, if your water intake is
less, you can make a habit of drinking a glass of
water every two hours without waiting for the
craving of being thirsty.
4
Dont Irritate your Gut
Everyone has a different digestive capacity. Some
people can easily tolerate spicy and fried food
whereas others may face the trouble of dyspepsia.
One should understand the gut and eat as per
ones capacity. Some common foods which are
irritable for the gut are hot spices, red
chilies, caffeine, alcohol, sweets and desserts
which have excessive amount of sugar and fat. A
balance with food intake contributes to the
comfort of the gut.
5
Choose High-Fiber Diet
Many nutritionists advise that our diet should
contain foods that are high in their fiber
content to sustain healthy digestion. Whole
grains, legumes, oatmeal, beans, nuts, fresh
veggies and fruits are definite friends of your
gut. In addition to keeping constipation at bay
and maintaining your body weight, this will also
help in treating digestive conditions such as
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and diverticulosis.
6
Nurture the Gut with Probiotics
In simple words, Probiotics are the healthy
bacteria which are already present in your
digestive tract. They are powerful enough to
nullify the effect of poor diet, strong
antibiotics and stressful lifestyle. Low-fat
yogurt is rich in probiotics and can be consumed
daily. Other sources of probiotic bacteria are
soy milk and dark chocolate. Regular consumption
of probiotic foods enhances nutrient absorption
thereby strengthening the immune system. This
also helps in treating IBS.
7
Limit Intake of Fatty Foods
 Fatty foods slow down the process of digestion
and increase the chances of constipation. Yet
some amount of fat consumption is necessary for
good health. Hence, we should eat a combination
of fatty foods and high-fiber foods in our daily
diet so that the body is able to digest the food
easily.
8
Bad Habits Learn to Say NO
Substances like nicotine, tobacco, liquor,
caffeine, cigarettes etc. can disrupt your
digestive system and may even cause stomach
problems like ulcers and heartburn. The art of
saying no to these addictions protect your gut.
9
Add Exercises to your Daily Routine
Exercises help in maintain a healthy body weight
and get the necessary movement of food, which
reduces the chances of constipation. They also
help in reducing stress and maintaining a balance
between physical, mental and emotional well-being.
10
Keep your Stress Levels Low
 Stress or anxiety affects the permeability of
the digestive tract and causes an imbalance in
the availability of good bacteria leading to the
chances of inflammation. You may include some
stress-reducing activities in your exercise
routine to ensure good health of your digestive
system. Your health is in your hands and your gut
feeling guides you for a healthy gut. If there
are signals from the body, then get active
to improve your digestive system and eliminate
the out of the blue moments to stay in the
pink of health.
