Maintain a Healthy Digestive Tract

Maintain a Healthy Digestive Tract

It’s time we gave digestion the healthy respect it deserves. The process is truly life-giving as the intestines extract and absorb nutrients from foods, leaving nothing but waste that must be eliminated. Feed your body for digestive health and you’ll feed your body for maximum health.

Eat More Fiber Rich Foods

Fiber promotes digestive health, which is vital to overall health and disease prevention. So pack a handful of prunes as a mid-afternoon snack or pour a crisp-tasting glass of PlumSmart® juice, which contains 3g of fiber per cup. Kids like the taste, too, and it’s a great way to sneak in a nutritious fruit serving after school.

Keep the Water Flowing

Dehydration can lead to headaches, lack of focus, fatigue, constipation and lackluster skin. And whether you’re drinking water, fruit juices or getting fluids from the fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet, they all count towards the recommended 8 glasses of water per day.

Keep Moving

Did you know by taking the stairs instead of the escalator you’re burning five times as many calories? Regular physical activity not only revs up your metabolism, it helps promote digestive health by keeping you “regular.”

Take Five

Stress can keep your stomach in knots and lead to digestive issues. Soothe away stress before it gets you by listening to calming music or simply phoning a friend to catch up.
