      Tips to digest your food better

      The better you digest your food, the better your body will be able to absorb nutrients. Digestive problems prevent you from getting the best out of your foods besides leading to problems such as diarrhea, constipation, weight gain, bloating and more.

      Stay hydrated

      Having fluids regularly can help you flush out waste. Have plenty of water and include juices and other beverages in your diet too.

      Go for probiotics

      Yogurts, snacks, juices and supplements contain probiotics which harbor good bacteria that helps the gut. These enhance the absorption of nutrients and strengthen the immune system as well.

      Stock up on the fiber

      Fiber is vital to keep digestion flowing smoothly. Nuts, seeds, wholegrain, lentils, vegetables and fruits have fiber that helps.

      Keep an eye on your diet

      For some people, certain foods that produce gas such as beans, sodas, fat-filled fried foods and cheese can cause indigestion. Some people cannot digest dairy products as they contain lactose, if so choose lactose-free products. In the case of others, certain acidic foods like citrus, tomatoes or beverages like tea and coffee can result in problems.

      Eat more slowly

      Slow the pace of your eating so that air does not get stuck in your stomach. Never gulp food or drinks. Chew well and slowly.

      Stop smoking

      Smoking is not just harmful to lung health, it’s bad for your digestive health as well. It weakens the valve located at the end of the esophagus which is the tube that goes from your mouth to your stomach. This may result in acid reflux, heartburn and even certain types of cancers. Ulcers and Crohn’s disease are more common with smokers.


      Exercise is good for overall body health and to boost your digestive system. However, make sure you do not work out immediately after eating. Wait at least an hour after eating.

      Ask the expert

      Sometimes certain medications and medical conditions can also result in indigestion. Make sure that you check these out as well.
