Digestive Health

Diets high in fiber help maintain digestive health, such as your bowel function, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Fiber also helps your digestive health by making you feel fuller so you don’t overeat. Plant-based sources of fiber like fruits, vegetables and whole grains are the best. Other great sources are whole foods, including the peel when possible (as with an apple). Nuts, fruits, berries and popcorn are also fiber-rich, healthy snacking options. By putting more fiber into your diet, the recommendation being about 25-30 grams a day, you should see a sharp uptick in your digestive health.


An excellent source of fiber is Sunfiber®, a true regulating soluble dietary fiber available from Tomorrow's Nutrition. Sunfiber is tasteless, odorless and completely dissolvable in water.

Healthy Digestion Starts With A Healthy Lifestyle!

Eating the daily recommendation of fiber is a great way to maintain your bowel function, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels, but you can also improve your overall digestive health by improving your lifestyle choices. The real keys to a healthier digestive system are diet and regular exercise. To improve your digestive health, evaluate stress levels, exercise, and diet.

Exercise helps individuals manage stress and aids in digestive health. It can also help manage weight and prevent constipation. Aerobic exercise and deep breathing exercises stimulate the natural contraction of intestinal muscles, helping to move food through your intestines more easily. Some of these exercises include, but are not limited to yoga, running, biking, Pilates, and mixed martial arts. It is also suggested that you avoid exercising after a large meal as the blood flow that will help digest your food redirects itself to support the heart and muscles, putting your digestion on hold. Go for a leisurely walk after eating to help the process of digestion get started.

Additionally, try to focus on the amount of water you consume. Water aids in the digestion of food, particularly fats and soluble fiber, and can help your body absorb nutrients. If dehydrated, your body will slowly digest foods, which can cause bloating and flatulence. Strive to drink at least eight cups of water per day. If you are physically active, increase your water intake.

Ultimately, maintaining a healthy diet will improve your overall digestive health. Pay attention to foods put into your body. Eat primarily fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein sources. If you choose to eat foods that are processed and high in sugar, do so in moderation. Too much of any food just isn't good for your body if it's not receiving the array of nutrients it needs from different food sources. As you begin eating healthier, limit foods high in fat. Keep in mind that fats are not bad for you, but when eaten in excess, fat can increase the likeliness of constipation and weight gain. When consuming meat as a protein source, be sure to choose lean meats as this will help decrease the excess fat in your diet. Remember to avoid overeating and eating quickly as it can cause your body strain to keep up with the digestion of food.

Remember the real keys to a healthier digestive system are a proper, fiber-filled diet and regular exercise. This includes staying hydrated, exercising regularly, reducing the amount of stress in your life, and eating enough of the right foods. To get on the path to healthy digestion, Sunfiber offers true regulation as the industries leading soluble fiber supplement. It dissolves fast, clear and tasteless so that you're packing even more power into your all-around healthy diet!
