Find out if your foods are working with your body or against you?
Find out if any food is making you feel unwell?
Your digestive systems health is extremely important. If your digestive system is not working correctly or it is having an off day, then it is certain that you are going to suffer. Your body needs nutrients from foods, and these are broken down by your digestive system. What you eat and the lifestyle you lead could be affecting your wellbeing.
There are a number of ways that you can improve your digestive system’s health, and I have outlined my top five tips below:
Eat enough food that is high in fibre
Food such as vegetables, fruits and whole grains can keep your digestive system healthy. There are two kinds of fibre – insoluble and soluble. Insoluble doesn’t dissolve in water and doesn’t need breaking down.
Examples of insoluble fibre are:
Wholemeal bread, bran, nuts and cereals.
Soluble fibre does the opposite it dissolves in water and also aids your body to generate less cholesterol.
Examples of soluble fibre are:
Fruit, root vegetables, oats and barley.
By consuming food that is high in fibre, you are less likely to suffer from constipation and keep various digestive conditions away.
Some of these conditions can be haemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome and weight issues. The majority of people in the UK only consume 18g of fibre a day. Ideally, you should be aiming to consume 30g a day over the age of 18.
Eat fewer foods that are high in fat
It will come as no surprise, but fatty foods are harder for the digestive system to breakdown. They can cause many symptoms such as heartburn, stomach pain and bloating. If you notice foods that trigger your symptoms then you should work out what is causing the problem and in turn, learn to cope and live with it.
Water is so important to your daily routine. Water will aid waste through your system easier. Without water, fibre will not be able to breakdown or be helped along, and if this were to happen then, you would end up constipated.
Drink water with every meal and try to avoid caffeine, as this will cause issues such as heartburn.
Eliminate bad habits
Many issues with your digestive system such as stomach ulcers and heartburn are down to an unhealthy lifestyle. Alcohol, smoking and caffeine can interfere and hinder your digestive system process.
Stress can cause your digestive system to malfunction. By eliminating stress, your stomach will thank you for treating it in a kinder and healthier way.
