Help with Digestion

Updated: Sep 23

If you have problems with indigestion, bloating, gas, high cholesterol, or weight gain, you may want to try grazing food, taking apple cider vinegar, ginger, vitamin B2, enzymes, and probiotics.


Grazing


Grazing (Snacking) is a pattern of consuming multiple meals throughout the day. Eating small portions (less than half of the meal) every 2 or 3 hours will be accessible on the gastrointestinal system. Doing so will make digestion easier, avoid bloating and reduce gas. Grazing food also keeps your hunger under control, metabolism elevated, and energy levels high. It helps lower cholesterol and maintains a healthy weight as well.


Apple cider vinegar (ACV)


Raw ACV is a natural healing tonic made from the double fermentation of whole apples, which contains nutrients, enzymes, and organic acids. It kills germs and nourishes the body at the same time. In 400 BC, the father of medicine, Hippocrates, used raw ACV for its unique natural cleansing, healing, and energizing health qualities. People got help from the external and internal application of ACV as folk medicine. As we age, the stomach produces less hydrochloric acid, which results in digestive problems. Taking ACV tonic home remedy (mix one tablespoon of ACV with 8 ounces of water) after each meal will enhance the action of your stomach acid and digestive enzymes. Most health food stores carry apple cider vinegar. It should be organic, raw, and unfiltered.


Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)


Vitamin B2 plays a crucial role in thyroid function and energy metabolism. It helps break down the calories from proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that supply the body with energy. It also is essential for tissue repair and healthy vision. It helps develop the lining of the digestive tract and mucous membrane. It is a water-soluble vitamin, flushed out daily with the urine, and cannot store in the body, so it needs to replenish constantly. If you don’t take vitamin B2 or eat right, you may have vitamin B2 deficiency, which causes indigestion, digestive inflammation, ulcers, polyps, hemorrhoids, etc. Daily taking 50-100 mg can help.

Ginger and digestive enzymes


Eat two slices of fresh ginger or take one papaya & pineapple enzymes tablet with each meal to help with digestion, relieve stomachache and nausea.


Probiotics


Taking probiotics as a daily supplement benefits digestion. Probiotics are friendly or good bacteria that restrain the harmful bacteria and yeast overgrow in the digestive tract and avoid bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, and other digestive issues.
