We would all like our days to go a little . . . smoother. However, that’s not always the case. At any point, from having too many tacos at lunch to harboring high levels of stress, you could be a victim of poor digestion.
One survey shows that 40% percent of people in the U.S. experience gastrointestinal discomfort. If you deal with digestive issues, don’t worry! There are simple, natural ways to improve your digestion and get back on track.
Here are six healthy digestion tips to help you re-LAX!
There are many benefits to eating ginger! Ginger can help with constipation, bloating, and intestinal gas.1 It is also good for calming the stomach. Try taking supplements with ginger to support digestion.
Keep your water bottle close. Dehydration can lead to constipation because the colon needs fluids to do its job. Drink your recommended amount of water daily and eat fruits and vegetables with high water content. Click here to find out your recommended water intake.
Slow down and give your taste buds a chance to enjoy your food! Eating quickly can contribute to overeating, which can upset the digestive tract. Mindful eating, like chewing your food and eating slowly, is better for you and contributes to healthy digestion.2
Move it to lose it! Exercise is great for digestion because it increases blood flow to the digestive tract and works with gravity to help move food through the digestive system.
High-soluble fiber, insoluble fiber, and probiotics all can promote healthy bowel movements and healthy gut bacteria.
This isn’t just limited to chewing gum. Chewing in general produces more saliva, which balances stomach acid and lessens heartburn.3 Your gut will thank you for this simple hack!
