We may eat the healthiest diet and practice every kind of fitness regime to keep our body healthy, but if our digestive system is weak, then all our efforts to build a stronger body goes in waste. Stomach is a small part of body but it’s actually the most important source of strength. With wrong eating habits, irregular lifestyle and pollution, our whole body gets weaker in passing time.

Fibers is the most essential thing if you want a good digestive system in your body. Dietary fiber when consumed passes through your body undigested whereas the soluble fiber dissolves and increases the healthy cholesterol levels. The insoluble fiber increases the stool bulk and removes all the undigested waste from body through digestive track. Animal based food don’t contain fiber, so its best to include, vegetables, fruits, grains, lentils and nuts in your daily diet. One should always avoid process foods which claim to contain fiber.

Melon, orange, berries, tomatoes, eggplants, leafy greens, radishes, cucumbers, and zucchini. The water based food will hydrate your body from inside, keep your digestive system clean and healthy.
Cultured or slightly fermented food contains enzymes that keep your gut healthy. Also, consuming probiotic foods in balanced manner on daily basis keep your digestive track. This will help body absorb necessary nutrients in the body which will eventually increase the immunity. The best probiotic food you can intake on daily basis is yoghurt. It’s best to consume fresh yoghurt rather the flavored or frozen as the probiotic enzymes are very less in them.
Herbs and Spices:
We all know that certain herbs and spices actually boost your immunity, cure disease like cough or cold, fight infection and improve digestion.
