5 foods to fix your gut and charge up digestion


A healthy digestive tract is more than just proper bowel movements. Researchers have realized that the state of your stomach has a huge influence on your overall health.

So to keep your stomach happy you need to have better immunity, a reasonable weight, and, yes, great bowel movement. So if you’re experiencing problems in the gut department, consider adding these five foods to your diet –

Broccoli stalks
Broccoli stalks along with fibrous tops of leeks, bottoms of asparagus, and apple skins all contain insoluble fiber, which is essential for healthy digestive function and regularity.

Often know as the ‘universal medicine’ in India, it stimulates the digestive systems, helping us to relieve of any uncomfortable gas and bloating.

Legumes, especially black beans and lentils, are excellent sources of soluble fiber. Once it passes through your system, soluble fiber soaks up water, which bulks up your stool. The healthy bacteria in the gut ferment the fiber into short-chain fatty acids which have considerable health benefits — like serving as an energy source for cells that line the intestinal tract.

Pineapple is super soothing to our stomachs since it contains a special digestive enzyme called bromelain, which helps us break down proteins, making it easy to digest and absorb nutrients. Bromelain also has anti-inflammatory properties which are helpful in easing stomach aches and discomfort.

Yogurt selections labeled with live or active cultures contain strains of bacteria which can enhance your bowel movements and help you maintain a healthy digestive system. Use it in your regular meals, add fresh fruits for variety and avoid buying those which have sugar added to it.
