Digestive System

How to keep your digestive system healthy

The foods you eat and the lifestyle you lead can have a direct impact on your digestive health.

Eating a diet that’s rich in fruit, vegetables, whole foods, lean proteins and fibre will improve your digestive health. It can also help you achieve or maintain a healthy weight.

Regular exercise helps keep foods moving through your digestive system and reduce bloating and constipation. Too much stress or anxiety can also cause your digestive system to go into overdrive.

Why is the digestive system important?

Your digestive system plays a vital role in keeping you healthy. It breaks down the food you eat and converts it into the nutrients your body needs to function as it should.

Taking steps to improve your diet and lifestyle can have a positive impact on your digestive health and improve your overall sense of wellbeing.

Having a healthy diet and doing regular exercise is important for good digestive health but can also help reduce the risk of developing certain long-term conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Looking after your digestive system can help you stay fit and healthy. But neglecting your digestive health could lead to serious problems.

A healthy gut isn’t just important for your overall wellbeing. It can also help strengthen your immune system and help your body to ward off long-term illness and disease.
