Good health starts with having a healthy digestive system. The right foods can assist with improving and or enhancing your digestive health.
Your digestive system is important because it breaks down the foods you eat into the nutrients your body needs. If you neglect your digestive health, your body could run into problems digesting foods and absorbing those nutrients.
There are many contributing factors that affect digestion and sometimes it can involve a process of elimination to discover what works for you. Food intolerances, stress and medications are just some of the factors that affect the state of your health and how your body works.
When neglected, poor digestive health can lead to obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.
Take a read of the Doc’s tips:
1. Eat a high fiber diet: A diet high in processed foods generally lacks a number of crucial nutrients that our bodies need to function optimally. Incorporating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, seeds and whole grains, aids your digestive system’s ability to function optimally. Take some description from the Doc’s range of menus including a complete vegan, gluten free, dairy free, pescatarian, vegetarian and healthy balance.
2. Incorporate probiotics into your diet: Probiotics help optimise the environment in your gut which can help your health in general. Check with the Doc which probiotic is best for you.
3. Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water is good for your digestive health. Water in your digestive system helps with regularity.
4. Exercise regularly: Exercise can also help to improve digestive health by assisting with regularity and your internal health and wellbeing. Check in with one of ours Docs to get a free consultation with a PT near you.
