Improving Your Digestive Health

All of us want to keep it regular and have an effortless time in the bathroom. If you’re having issues with your bowel motions or just want to have some preventative measures, below are some of our best tips…

Eat More Fibre

Make sure to put more fibre-rich ingredients into your diet. This includes insoluble fibre (e.g. wheat bran and whole grains) to add bulk to the stools and soluble fibre (e.g. fruits, oats and legumes) to soften the stools and helps promote regular bowel movements.

 

Stay Hydrated

Water intake has an important role in your digestive health – the presence of fluid helps in processing of fibre and other nutrients as well as passing of stools. Apart from drinking, you can also boost your water consumption with fruits and vegetables with high water level such as watermelon, cucumber, strawberries and more.

 

Support Your Guts

Keeping a healthy gut microbiome helps you digest food properly and prevent diarrhea and runny stools. To promote healthy digestion, get some foods and drinks that are rich in probiotics or healthy bacteria, especially if you’re on antibiotic prescriptions. You can find probiotics in yogurt, kimchi, kefir, kombucha and other fermented products.
