The website BetterDigestion.org has published an educational article about ways to ensure healthy digestion for women. The article provides tips and tricks to avoid digestive issues, including gas, bloating and diarrhea.
An informative article from BetterDigestion.org details the importance of healthy digestion for women. The author discusses how eating certain foods, staying hydrated and supplementation with multivitamins and probiotics prevents digestive issues in women, including gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation.
Nearly 75% of digestive disorders are diagnosed in women, this includes bloating, diarrhea, constipation,IBS and abdominal pain. Most of these digestive disorders are the result of environmental factors, including stress and diet.
The article describes how missing meals causes digestive issues as well as weight gain. Missing meals causes energy level to crash and blood sugar to drop; causing the body to crave sweet or salty foods.
The article also details how fresh fruit and vegetables are the best sources of vitamins and minerals, but a busy schedule may limit access to such foods. Supplementing with a high-quality multivitamin ensures the body is not missing out on important vitamins and minerals; making it less likely to experience digestive disorders. Evidence suggests that vitamins and minerals may be the best defense against diseases such as heart disease, cancer and stroke. A daily multivitamin also provides antioxidants, which neutralize free radicals, preventing them from causing damage to the body.
Maintaining proper hydration plays an important role in ensuring healthy digestion. In addition to ridding the body of harmful toxins, water allows proper transportation of nutrients throughout the body. Symptoms of dehydration include lack of energy, confusion, muscle and joint pain and headaches. The article recommends that women drink a minimum of 2 liters, or 64 ounces, of water every day; more if actively exercising.
Packing nutritious snacks is a great way for women to maintain digestive health while on the go. The article details how fresh organic fruits vegetables are great snacks; carrots, snap peas, apples, oranges and bananas all travel well and provide required vitamins and nutrients. Whole grain cereal is another great choice; mix into low-fat Greek yogurt for a high protein, low-fat healthy snack choice. In addition to providing muscle building protein, yogurt is rich in probiotics, which are key in maintaining digestive health. Probiotics are actually “good” bacteria which balance harmful, illness-causing bacteria found in the digestive tract; keeping the digestive tract healthy and functioning as it should.
