4 Tips for Better Digestive Health

It’s world digestive day, and what better way to mark it than with our nutritionist’s top tips for better digestive health? 

Want to know how to boost your gut health? Read on:  

1. Eat more fibre:

Fibre is a type of carbohydrate that our body cannot digest. It passes through our digestive system and can help food keep moving through our digestive tract. Eating fibre is a great way to prevent constipation and improve digestion.  

One easy way to add more fibre to your diet is through high fibre snacks. High fibre snacks can help control blood sugar levels and may help with weight loss.

Our Slender Sip drinks are a high fibre convenient option that can aid weight loss. This is because they contain glucomannan; a fibre that expands in your stomach and can help you feel fuller for longer, resulting in weight loss*

2. Drink plenty of fluids:

Water is essential for your digestion; it’s absorbed by fibre and can help reduce constipation. exante’s caffeine free BURST sachets are a great way to stay hydrated and ensure you’re consuming your vitamins and minerals.

3. Limit caffeine:

Caffeine can boost stomach acid and may lead to discomfort including heartburn or ulcers. Our new mocktail flavoured ready-to-drink BURST cans are a perfect grab and go drink, as they are low in sugar and caffeine free. 

4. Manage your stress levels:

Recent research has shown that stress can impact our digestive health, this is because when we’re stressed our body pumps less blood to our gut, which hinders digestion and can slow it down.

* Glucomannan in the context of an energy restricted diet contributes to weight loss. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3 g of glucomannan in three doses of 1 g each, together with 1-2 glasses of water, before meals and in the context of an energy-restricted diet
