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
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
