You are only as healthy as your digestive system is

Almost 80% of the immune system cells are in the digestive system so the entire health and general well-being depend on its good functioning. Don’t forget about it!

When we talk about health, i.e., the immune system, we need to understand that it does not function independently. Many systems in our body closely cooperate to maintain optimal health. One of them is especially responsible for our general health – our digestive system – a strong but sensitive ecosystem where almost 80% of cells of our immune system are.

The digestive tract consists of the colon, stomach, liver, small intestine, gallbladder, and pancreas and they are all equally important for a healthy body. All parts of our body, including the digestive tract and the immune system, work better if we support them with a healthy lifestyle.

Small tricks for a healthy digestive system

Besides regular physical activity or at least long walks – it is recommended to make between seven to ten thousand steps per day for a positive effect and a healthy life – food is one of the most important factors for better and healthier digestion. A balanced and diverse diet, as well as a sufficient daily intake of fiber-rich fruit, vegetables, and whole grains, is important. Nutritious but light meals are key for having good digestion because they do not burden your digestive system and at the same time you have enough energy and feel good.

Here are the 10 best foodstuffs for the health of our digestive system:

  • Avocado
  • Whole grain products (bulgur, buckwheat, oat, spelt, brown rice…)
  • Blue fish
  • Pears
  • Pumpkin
  • Cabbage
  • Legumes
  • Kale (Brussels sprouts)
  • Polenta/maize meal
  • Mushrooms
