Taking Care of your Digestive System

Posted .

Your digestive system is one of the most important parts of your body. It breaks down all the food you eat, takes the nutrients from that food, and distributes them throughout your body. If you eat a bad diet or neglect regular exercise, you could face problems later in life as your digestive system becomes unable to digest and absorb nutrients from food.

So let’s take a look at how you can take better care of your digestive system.

Eat a lot of fiber
Fiber is one of the best things for your overall digestive health. Fiber helps food move food through your digestive tract, helping you avoid problems such as hemorrhoids and irritable bowel syndrome.

Eat lean meats
Meats high in fat are hard on your digestive tract. Lean meats are full of protein, an essential part of any healthy diet. While fatty meats may taste better, lean meats are better for you in the long run.

Set an eating schedule
When you eat at random times throughout the day, it throws your digestive system for a loop. Eating and drinking on a regular schedule can help your digestive system stay in top shape.

If you feel that you’re having digestion issues, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. John Abroon today to schedule a consultation appointment.
