Good Food for the Tummy
According to a study recently published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, “polyphenol content in red wine can promote the activity of healthy bacteria in the gut.” Many people have shown interest in having a healthy gut to prevent digestive disorders such as celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome.
Researchers observed that the study’s male participants who drank red wine had increased percentage of beneficial gut bacteria in the lining of their intestines, which is an important factor in keeping a healthy digestive system.
So, how do you keep a healthy tummy? Here are some food choices you can try to help you maintain a healthy gut:
- Eat lots of citrus fruits, leafy greens, and yellow vegetables that are rich in fiber.
- Priobiotic-rich foods are your friends! foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, miso, bananas, garlic, asparagus and onion can help keep the lining of your colon healthy.
- Several spices and herbs such as cardamom, cinnamon, caraway, cumin, ginger, mint, fennel, and nutmeg can prevent or relieve gas and help the digestive process by relaxing the stomach muscles.
- If you want something that can flatten your tummy and alleviate the pressure in the gastrointestinal tract, you may have brown rice, nuts, oatmeal, avocado, dark chocolate, and olive oil.
In the book, “The Second Brain,” Dr. Michael Gershon stated that the gut is an important organ that can show early signals of disorders and diseases like osteoporosis and even Parkinson’s.
As the saying goes, “You are what you eat.” Give your tummy a break from all the junk you have been stuffing yourself with. Start eating healthy and be fit!
