Advices for a healthy digestion

8 February 2010 Email This Post Email This Post Print This Post Print This Post

Here are some advices to ensure you have a healthy digestive system:

  • try to have moderate portions, as the stomach is having problems to digest when it has too much food;
  • chew each bite at least 20 times, in order to chop the food well and to stop the stomach from making too much digestive fluid;
  • drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, as people often mistake the hunger sensation with thirst sensation;
  • avoid loosening substances as they dehydrate the organism and eliminate nutrients;
  • exercise regularly, as it stimulates intestine muscles to contract;
  • do not eat when you are nervous, as the body eliminates cortisol, aka stress hormone, which, in large quantities causes high blood sugar;
  • you should drink daily, in the morning on the empty stomach, a teaspoon of whole wheat with natural juice;
  • eat pro-biotic yogurt as it helps rebuilding micro biologic intestinal (gut)  flora
