Healthy digestion is something that many people overlook when trying to get healthier. It has a lot to do with food and supplements but for some reason, digestive health is usually left out when choosing a nutritional plan and supplements to use. This post will give you a couple tips to make sure you are getting the proper digestive support.
You want to eat foods that are rich in fiber, probiotics, or prebiotics. These three things are very important in keeping your digestive system healthy, and in turn, keep you healthy. Luckily, prebiotics and fiber are basically the same thing (prebiotics are usually found in soluble fiber)! The best sources for that include fruits, oatmeal, root vegetables, legumes, and barley. Probiotics are usually found in diary foods. The best natural source is yogurt but you can also find it in cottage cheese, tempeh, and some wines.
If you feel that you can’t get enough of these substances through your food, you can always get supplements. There are many probiotic and fiber supplements out there that have been proven to help your digestive system. However, food sources are always a better choice than supplements. For that reason, always try and get your daily requirements from food and supplement only when it is really necessary.
