While Keto diet taking the world a lot of people think how that will help their weight loss, to control blood sugar level, cholesterol level and so on, but they intent to forget to think how this Keto diet will effect my digestion system.
As Keto deprive us from the high-carb foods like fruits, starchy vegetables, many of these foods are high in fibre and it’s essential nutrients for our digestive system.
Fibre helps to regulate our bowl movement. If we start to reduce fibre intake it will increase risk of constipation. So having non-starchy vegetables and low sugar fruits during Keto diet it’s a must.
And also when we eat let’s enjoy our food, take your time, don’t rush it. Eat slowly let your digestive system to absorb all nutrients. This may help to reduce digestive discomfort.
Always stay hydrated. As I always say drink water like its your job. Drinking plenty off water has been shown to have a beneficial effect on the mucosal lining of the intestines, as well as on the balance of the good bacteria in the gut.
Probiotic or Prebiotic supplement it’s a great way to improve your gut health. Probiotic is a life good bacteria and prebiotic provide “food” meant to encourage the growth of a good bacteria in the gut. It’s always good to consult a health care provider when choosing probiotic or prebiotic.
Definitely don’t forget about magnesium and potassium. These minerals also play vital role in our digestive system. Potassium stimulates muscle contractions within the intestinal walls to improve bowel movement. For this reason, magnesium can help to relieve the discomfort of constipation.
Foods than can help your digestive system:
Berries, asparagus, avocados, leafy greens, coconut oil, butter, garlic, onion, bone broth, mint tea.
