Did you know: The large intestine includes the cecum, appendix, colon, and rectum. It is the final part of the digestive system. It absorbs water from the remaining indigestible food matter, and passes any un-needed waste from the body.

Keeping the digestive system operating in peak condition is important for your overall #health, but can sometimes be difficult to maintain with the busy #lifestyles that we lead today.

Here are a few tips to help keep your digestive system in peak condition.

1) Balanced Nutrition. It goes without saying that a balanced, natural diet is in tune with our body’s inner workings – after all, our caveman ancestors certainly did not dine on a diet of burgers and fries. It should be your goal to eat unprocessed food, in a format as close to it’s natural state as possible.

2) Drink Plenty Of Water. Most of us do not drink nearly as much water as our body needs. The Institute of Medicine recommends that women drink 9 cups of water a day, and men drink 13 cups.

3) Eat Smaller, and More Frequent Meals. Nutritionists recommend a smaller intake of food consumed throughout the day as 4-5 meals, rather than the traditional 3 meals in a day.

4) Chew Food Thoroughly, East Slowly. This is difficult to do when you’re on the move, but slowing down the way you eat helps digestion enormously. It gives the enzymes in your saliva a better chance of breaking down carbohydrates.

5) Take Care Of Your Body. Physical care of your body can have a profound affect on your digestion. Exercise regularly (at least 30 minutes a day) to help maintain a healthy heart and blood flow.
