Tips for Healthy Digestion

National Nutrition Month is coming to an end, and we hope you’ve loved it as much as we have! It’s been a great opportunity to focus on how the food you eat can impact your health. Today, we’re going to wrap things up by sharing some tips to get the most out of your nutrition by taking care of your digestive health!

Why Your Digestive Health Matters

One of the most obvious reasons that healthy digestion matters is that you need to be able to properly digest your food to take advantage of the nutrients. No matter how healthy your diet is, a healthy digestive system is critical for you to get the most benefit out of it!

But your digestive system does a lot more than simply breaking down your food. Research suggests that the balance of bacteria in your digestive tract may also affect your weight. People with a healthy and diverse balance of bacteria in their gut tend to maintain healthier body weights than those with less diverse balances of bacteria. That’s why it’s important to consider your digestive health if you’re working to lose weight.

In addition to proper digestion and weight management, your digestive health also affects your immune health. According to research, probiotics, or the good bacteria that live in your gut, “can regulate not only the local intestinal immune system but also can have a profound influence on systemic immune responses.” You may not realize it, but your digestive system can have a huge effect on your overall health!

Tips For Healthy Digestion
  • Staying physically active can have a powerful impact on your digestion. At Yoli, we recommend working out for 30-45 minutes three to five times a week.
  • Eating a healthy diet featuring complex carbohydrates, lean protein, fruits, and vegetables is important for your digestive health. Avoid eating a lot of sugar and foods high in saturated and trans fats as often as possible.
  • To get the most nutrients out of the food you eat, supplement your enzyme intake with Yoli’s Enzyme. It uses two proprietary blends, Protizorb and Ultizorb, to help break down protein, carbohydrates, sugars, and fats for improved nutrient absorption and increased digestive efficiency.*
  • Probiotics, the good bacteria that we mentioned above, are an important part of your digestive health. You can supplement your probiotic intake with Pure, which will improve your beneficial gut bacteria to promote healthy digestion and support your immune health.*
