4 Ways to Improve Your Digestion Naturally
Is poor digestion cramping your style? Don’t let it go on another day. We’ve got 5 way to improve your digestion naturally.
If gas, bloating, heartburn, nausea, constipation or diarrhea are part of your everyday life, you’re not alone.
In our modern day society digestive problems have become a part of our daily routine. Albeit often an inconvenient, painful or embarrassing one.
We don’t talk about digestive disorders and we rarely seek advice to help such a common problem. The most common problems associated with the digestive tract are diarrhea, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and heartburn. These can be caused by many things, such as an unhealthy lifestyle, poor nutrition, a food sensitivity or even an infection. And just as there are many causes, there are many ways to help your digestive system work smoothly.
As dietitians we believe that real food (and a healthy lifestyle) is powerful medicine and that with just a few adjustments to what you eat, when you eat and how you eat you can noticeably improve your digestion.
Here are our top 4 ways to improve your digestion naturally:

Probiotics are strains of beneficial bacteria that live in your digestive system. These bacteria are microorganisms called “probiotics” which means ‘for life’. These microscopic ‘bugs’ live in your intestines where they produce vitamins and short-chain fatty acids that feed and nurture other beneficial bacteria , are nonpathogenic (non-disease causing) and directly contribute to a healthy gut flora (the community of bacteria in your gut). These bacteria aid in digestion (breaking down the foods you eat), help prevent infection and reduce chronic inflammation. You can get more probiotics by taking a supplement or eating raw fermented foods like kefir, yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha.
