We all strive to improve ourselves, and what better time than kicking off a new year? Start 2019 with a bang! A few small changes to your diet and daily lifestyle can have a positive impact on your digestive health. Here are a few such changes that could have a positive impact on your digestion:
Eat a high fiber diet: Seeing as most of us do not consume the recommended daily amount of fiber we need; transitioning to a high-fiber diet is a perfect resolution for 2019. It can be difficult to consume all the fiber you need from food alone, so consider adding a prebiotic fiber supplement such as Fiber Choice® chewable tablets and gummies to your routine.
Consumer both types of fiber: There are two core types of dietary fiber you should consume: soluble and insoluble. Insoluble fiber can’t be digested by the body which helps add substance to the stools. Soluble fiber can be a good prebiotic which can nourish the good bacteria in the colon, help improve digestive health, and help support regularity.1
Stay hydrated: I’m sure we have all been told to “drink more water” before. While there are many reasons to stay hydrated, one lesser known benefit is gut health improvement. Fiber and water are a digestive health dream team, so when you add fiber to your diet, be sure to add more water too.
These are just a few of the many ways to help improve your gut health in the new year. To learn about all of the ways follow Fiber Choice on Facebook and Instagram for your daily dose of health and wellness motivation. And try Fiber Choice for more of your daily fiber!
