Let’s talk DIGESTION.
Digestion is one of the foundational systems in our body. Every other system in our body depends on good digestion so that it can function well.
The food we eat become hormones, neurotransmitters, enzymes, body cells, and energy… important for mood, energy, metabolism, and for living vibrantly!
It’s easy to forget about the basics. Start with a strong foundation of the basics and use supplements to SUPPLEMENT your healthy routines.
Here are 3 Quick Ways to help your GUT digest:
💨 1: Take five breaths before starting your meal.
Digestion is a parasympathetic process. Breathing shifts you from a sympathetic (stress) state to a parasympathetic state for optimal digestion.
🍴 2: Take smaller bites and chew your food 20+ times per bite.
Chemical and mechanical digestion starts in the mouth. If you don’t chew your food, you’re putting extra burden on your stomach, pancreas, liver and small intestine.
💧 3: If you have low stomach acid, drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with a bit of water (think shot glass size) 10 minutes before eating.
Apple cider vinegar can help stimulate stomach acid, which is critical for digestion.
