Think About What You’re Eating!
How much do you think that what you eat has a direct impact on your health? A lot! Not just digestive health but our overall health. Our diet can be directly linked to such important things like how much energy we have to work and play, how much weight we put on, sinus problems, headaches and many other disorders such as gas, bloating constipation and acid reflux or heartburn.
Many of these problems have almost become the “norm” because they are experienced by so many of us living tin the modern western world. You don’t have to have then though, you can make changes in poor health by making a few smart changes to your daily dieting habits. This is true for people of any age, but the older we get, the more good, quality nutrition the body must have because there are certain nutrients it doesn’t produce as much of anymore. Things like enzymes and hormones and the older body requires more fiber too.
Here are some top recommendations that can help anyone feel and look better too!
More physical activity – this is recommended not only when trying to lose a few pounds, but our body needs exercise to also strengthen it’s immune system, detoxify major organs, and improve it’s circulation. You don’t need to go full blown in the gym, just some daily walking or bike riding swimming etc.
Drink more water – We say more because most people just don’t drink enough. The body is about 75% water and needs a regular fresh supply of it. This helps in delivering nutrients to all the cells and removing waste so you don’t end up with digestive disorders.
Eliminate white flour and sugar – We call these white foods which include white bread, pasta, baked goods, and all sorts of sweets, including soda pop. Sugar alone can wreak havoc on your digestive and long-term health in general. They can also contribute to insulin resistance, raise your bad cholesterol count, and on top of all that, these foods offer little to no actual nutrients for your body.
More fresh vegetables – We’ve all heard this one since we were little kids right? That’s because they are some of the most perfect foods your body is meant to be eating for the nutrients needed to maintain good health. An important thing to consider is buying organic whenever you can because these have minimal pesticides and other chemicals, and they not only taste better but contain more nutrients in them.
Get some Sleep – Our body uses this time to repair itself and not getting enough of it for long periods of time can lead to things like stress, and impaired immune function, which of course can make you more susceptible to infection and disease.
As with any successful plan, do a little each day rather than trying to change your whole lifestyle in one day, this is why many people fail at things like losing weight and eating healthier for the long term.
Because so much of the food around us is so highly processed taking a quality digestive supplement can help fill the nutritional gaps that is left by a poor diet.
