Be Kind To Your Digestive System – Top Tips From Janne Ramsay | Mr Vitamins
“You are what you eat”... it may be an old cliché but it still points to time-tested wisdom. Naturopath Janne Ramsay shares 8 simple tips which can improve your digestion in just one week.
  • Chewing your food properly, each bite up to 20 to 30 times, improves digestion
  • Eating bitter foods such as lemon juice or bitter greens such as rocket, kale, endives and dandelion greens, stimulates secretion of digestive enzymes, helps to break down food and improves nutrient absorption
  • Probiotics improve natural peristalsis, improve and normalise bowel transit time
  • Prebiotics help probiotics work better, improve the acid levels of the intestine and enhance absorption of essential minerals. Prebiotics are found in asparagus, Jerusalem artichokes, leeks, onions, beans, chickpeas, lentils and supplementary fibres such as psyllium, pectin, guar gum and slippery elm.
  • Eating fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables provides higher levels of enzymes to improve digestion and usually have lower levels of herbicides and pesticides
  • High fibre foods improve digestion and bowel function
  • Drinking 1 ½ to 2 litres of pure, clean water improves digestive wellness
  • Apple cider vinegar can help digestion and improve fat metabolism. Use in dressings or take a teaspoon in water on rising in the morning
