A healthy gut thrives on good nutrition, adequate fluid intake, moderate exercise, and low stress.
These tips will help to keep the gut healthy and minimize the risk of digestive illness: 

  • Eat slowly, chewing your food thoroughly to promote good digestion

  • Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables  

  • Add fiber to your daily diet such as beans, whole grain breads, and high fiber cereal

  • Drink plenty of water

  • Exercise

  • Get adequate rest

  • Limit your simple sugar intake. Too much sugar can over work the pancreas to produce more insulin.

  • Limit fatty foods. High fat foods result in sluggish digestion, making it harder for the body to clear wastes

  • See a dietitian if you have chronic gut complaints
