What does healthy digestion look like and why is it important? We are so glad you asked because a healthy digestive system is everything when it comes to your overall well being and feeling good from daytime to playtime.
Your digestive system does so much for you — from extracting nutrients from your food to keeping your body regulated in all areas of nutritional, physical, mental, and emotional health. The “bottom” line is, a poor digestive system will lead to less than optimal health in these areas. That’s why it’s important to recognize the symptoms of a healthy digestive system and how to support your digestion with strategies like diet, exercise, improving stress management skills, hydration, and more!

Regulate your system, not your playtime.
Yes, brown is the new black. Regular bowel movements should be fairly regular! Now, regular means at least 2-3 times a day. Sometimes it means 4 or more. This can vary for people who are constipated, so what's normal for you may be different than someone else. You may need to see your doctor if you aren't having bowel movements at least 3 times a week. The best marker of constipation is not having symptoms and getting at least one "movement" in the morning. Fiber can dramatically help when it comes to becoming more regular.
After you eat you should feel comfortably satisfied but not bloated, stuffed or gassy. I know eating is supposed to be fun and enjoyable especially when you’re out on a date. But overeating can cause upset stomach and other digestive problems, so be sure to include fiber rich foods in your diet like fruits, veggies and whole grains. If you’re on a strict protein-diet or the like, our fiber blend is a great way to achieve your fiber intake without impacting your diet.
While sleep disruptions have many underlying causes, digestive disorders can cause you to wake during the night because of acid reflux or because you feel the urgent need to have a bowel movement. Our easy to take capsules or powder may be the remedy needed for a good night’s sleep.
Fiber plays a key role in managing our digestion, but most of us don’t eat nearly enough. While the average person eats just 15 grams of fiber a day, many experts recommend at least 30 grams per day for good gut health. If you are looking to fill the fiber gaps in your diet, we’ve got your back with an entire collection of fiber supplements.
