Care for your Gut: How to Take Care for Your Gastrointestinal Health
Digestive problems such as heartburn, bloating, and constipation reflect what is happening in your body. As getting older, the natural cycle slows down and doesn’t work. The main factor for changes in intestinal health is replacement of stomach acid, intestinal immunity, and gastrointestinal flora (a complex ecosystem of bacteria in your digestive system.) When the digestive system is not healthy than the person experiences all over health problems as the immunity lapses.
Sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms are common in healthy populations. Most symptoms respond to changes in diet, perhaps through changes in intestinal microbiota. There are indications that diet has a significant effect on intestinal flora and digestive health in general. There are various dietary interventions such as consumption of probiotics, especially bifidobacteria, as well as oligo, di, and monosaccharides, are recommended.
Physical activity can also increase the composition of intestinal flora and reduce digestive disorders. However, many studies analyzing the effects of diet and lifestyle are limited. Fortunately, lifestyle and diet changes can have a positive impact on your digestive health. The following ways to protect your digestive system may sound surprising because this isn’t just about nutrition.
