9 Simple Tips to Improve Your Digestive Health



WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • The recommended daily intake of fiber is about 25-30 grams per day. Getting this amount will help your gut perform its normal functions, and it’s totally doable to sneak extra fiber into your daily diet.
  • Drinking enough water will ensure the fiber does its job. Keep drinking up throughout the day.
  • Avoid antibiotics whenever possible, as they kill all the bacteria your gut needs to do its job.
It’s not a glamorous subject, but digestion is one of the biggest factors in overall health. To improve your digestive health, follow these nine tips.
  1. Get plenty of fiber from sources like artichokes, raspberries, pears, apples, peas, lentils, beans, sunflower seeds, and almonds.
  2. Drink plenty of fluids. Fiber can’t do its job without fluids.
  3. Prioritize less processed carbs over processed ones.
  4. Try herbal teas with gut-soothing ingredients like ginger and chamomile.
  5. Sneak natural probiotics into your diet with garlic, asparagus and onions.
  6. Avoid antibiotics whenever possible.
  7. Try adding beets to salads for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  8. Explore yoga poses that claim to help with digestion, such as triangle pose.
  9. Eat leafy greens to further regulate digestion.
