The holiday season is filled with feasts. Between the holidays themselves and other weekend gatherings and parties with friends and family, there is a constant food and drink intake throughout the next 5 weeks. Keeping your digestive system working most effectively this time of year is crucial. Healthine made a list of the 11 best ways to improve digestion. Here are the top 5.
1. Eat Real Food
Avoid artificial foods and processed foods. Aim for foods that are high in nutrients.
2. Get Plenty of Fiber
Fiber is beneficial for good digestion. Fill your plate with foods such as oat bran, legumes, nuts and seeds, whole grains and wheat bran.
3. Add Healthy Fats to Your Diet
Fat helps you feel satisfied after a meal and is often needed for proper nutrient absorption. Foods that will help include flaxseeds, chia seeds, nuts (especially walnuts), as well as fatty fish like salmon, mackerel and sardines.
4. Stay Hydrated
Constantly be refilling your cup, bottle, or thermos at work, at home, or at the gym.
5. Manage Your Stress
This can be a difficult one during the holidays, but stress hormones directly affect your digestion, so be sure to avoid stressful situations as much as you can.
