Are you constantly feeling bloated? Do you have irregular bowel movements? These problems will leave you in a constant state of discomfort. You may have some colon and digestive issues to address. The health of your colon affects the entirety of your digestive system, so you must keep your gut healthy. Here are a few tips to keep your colon healthy for a healthier, happier you!
Eat A Healthy Diet
A healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables will help you maintain a healthy colon. Fruits and vegetables are packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. A plant-based diet does not necessarily mean only eating plants; however, at least half of your plate should contain plant foods. Consuming various fruits and vegetables will provide different nutrients to strengthen your immune system and reduce inflammation.
Fruits and vegetables are also high in fiber, and having a fibrous diet will help regulate your bowel movements. Fiber also increases feelings of fullness, which can help you eat just enough and not feel the discomfort of bloating. Keeping things moving through the colon will reduce your chance of colon-related diseases.
Drink Enough Water
Drinking enough water throughout the day can help move excrement through your colon quickly. Not properly hydrating your body can lead to a buildup of toxins that can be detrimental to your health. Make sure to drink at least 8 cups of water a day. If you have trouble keeping up with your water intake, try eating food with high water content. Foods such as watermelons, tomatoes, and celery have high water content to keep you hydrated.
Regular exercise can help you regulate your bowel movements. Increased blood flow and circulation will help the effectiveness of your colon overall. Exercise can reduce the risk of digestive disturbances and improve your overall gut health. If you don’t have an exercise routine set, getting up for a walk or jog is a great way to get your body moving.
