Why is the Intestinal System Important?

A healthy intestinal system promotes efficient nutrient absorption and waste elimination, leading to better overall digestive health and nutrient utilisation. This can result in higher energy levels, a stronger immune system, and fewer gastrointestinal issues like bloating and irregular bowel movements.

An unhealthy intestinal system can cause malabsorption, nutrient deficiencies, chronic fatigue, and a weakened immune system. Persistent issues like bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can cause significant discomfort and disrupt daily life.

5 Ways to Keep Your Intestinal System Healthy

1. Eat a High-Fibre Diet
Fibre promotes regular bowel movements and prevents constipation. Ensure you include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes in your diet. Read our comprehensive guide about fibre.

2. Stay Hydrated
Water aids in digestion and helps maintain a healthy intestinal lining. Aim to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily. If you struggle to drink water throughout the day, chlorophyll can help!

3. Include Probiotics and Prebiotics
These support a healthy gut microbiome, crucial for digestion. Consume yoghurt, kefir, and foods rich in prebiotics like garlic and onions. Read about fermented food and the importance of probiotics.

4. Avoid Processed Foods
Processed foods can disrupt gut health and lead to digestive issues. Opt for whole, unprocessed foods whenever possible. Find out which foods you should avoid.

5. Exercise Regularly
Physical activity helps maintain regular bowel movements and overall gut health. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days. Find out about fitness for the over 50's.
