With the on-the-go life many of us lead, we can sometimes forget that digestion is actually a major process in our bodies that requires a lot of energy. Instead of using up this energy straight after eating on exercise for example, make sure your body can focus on digestion only by simply relaxing for a little while after food. In other words, don’t feel guilty for feeling that after food slump, it’s only natural!
A healthy gut will save you plenty of stomach cramps and heartburn, but it also has major health benefits. By absorbing the food we eat correctly, our body can use the nutrients more efficiently and all our organs can function better. ‘If the gut ain’t happy, ain’t no organ happy.’
