How to Improve My Digestive System

This is a very important question in the health world of how to get your digestive system on the right track. What many people do not realize is that a healthy digestive system is the key to having great health. Sluggish or poor digestive systems lead to other ailments and diseases and of course these can be avoided or reversed by simply adding or subtracting some simple things to or from your diet and lifestyle. I remember right after college, I would keep track of how many bowel movements I had. I’d recently learned that having multiple movements each day represented a healthy digestive system.

You’ll also notice that you feel so much better livelier and energetic. So, how to improve my digestive system? One of the simpler things you can do is simply chew your food very thoroughly. Dietitians suggest for best practices to chew your food at least 30 times before you swallow. The more saliva you have to break down your food will make it easier on your digestive system to break down your food and utilize your nutrients.

The next thing you can do to improve your digestive system is to add digestive enzymes to your lifestyles. A good enzyme product will have Betain HCI, Pepsin, Bromelain, all ingredients that help maintain and support digestive health. It is said that a good enzyme taken 30 minutes before a meal will stop gas, bloating, and heart burn symptoms no matter what foods you ate. Pepsin breaks down proteins for better digestive process. Then look into incorporating prebiotics and probiotics to your diets pre and post meals. Normally you’re thinking of yogurt because of all the commercials but you can get this from apple cider vinegar as well.

Outside of the Ultimate Enzymes, if you truly desire to improve your digestion, you have to hydrate yourself. Drinking the right amount of water for your body weight is definitely recommended. If you are a big soda drinker or coffee, you may want to have your morning coffee, but do not have another until you’ve consumed your daily recommended water intake. Same thing for the soda; since soda is not a morning “pick-me-up” beverage, avoid it and only drink it once you’ve had your water for the day. Sodas and coffee do a great job in dehydrating you, and they sap your energy levels and slow your digestive system down. Stay away from them or put them in a moderation or you will lose the digestive game.

The last thing you can do to improve yourself is to have yourself a good detoxification or cleanse (colon cleanse). This will make you feel good, cleans your system out and allows you to get regular again. You want to enjoy at least one comfortable bowel movement each day; and doing a regular cleanse will aid you in this. To recap, to improve your digestive system, chew your food thoroughly, drink plenty of water, take enzyme supplements, and do a cleanse or detoxify your body. You’ll feel better and look better as well.
