Best Foods To Eat
A diet for digestive health focuses on healthy fats, lean, unprocessed meats, fermented vegetables like kimchi, fibrous vegetables, and cultured dairy products. Healthy fats in avocados and avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, and coconut oil can soothe inflammation. Lean fish like salmon provides a great source of omega-3 fatty acids which research has shown may improve irritable bowel syndrome. Gluten-free grains should be chosen over gluten-rich flour. Grains free of gluten include rice, buckwheat, teff, amaranth, and gluten-free oats. Fibrous root vegetables like sweet potatoes, yams, carrots, and turnips offer an excellent source of fiber which supports digestive health. Probiotic yogurt is also beneficial because it supports healthy gut flora. One recent study even suggests a diet high in fiber and probiotics can help heal a leaky gut.
