You know there’s a saying, “You are what you eat.” Well, it’s true; various types of research prove that very point. Proper digestion does not only help you live longer but also increases mental clarity and if you are not feeding your digestive system the right food, you can end up with several disorders.
The Irritable Bowel Syndrome (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is one of the most common digestive disorders observed around the world. It is characterized by sudden dramatic changes in your bowel movements. The symptoms could range from diarrhea to constipation to abdominal pain and cramps. In these cases, diet regulation is essential to get a grip on the syndrome.
Listed below are five foods to reduce Irritable Bowel Syndrome:
Oatmeal without Added Sugar
Sugar or artificial sweeteners can be a trigger for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In such a case, Oatmeal is a perfect choice for your breakfast or lunch that can be consumed without any added sugar. You can use cinnamon to add flavor to this otherwise bland meal. Oatmeal also contains soluble fiber that can help ease diarrhea.
There is hardly a healthy food that one can consume in such variations. Eggs are digested faster than most foods and can be consumed at any time of the day. Also, Eggs are a very reasonable choice given that they contain no fibre.
However, some people might report discomfort after consuming eggs in their diet. This could be due to two significant reasons:
- Sensitivity to the protein and fat.
- The extra ingredients you take with your eggs.
Therefore, it is essential to note how your body reacts to the intake.
A lot of people believe that uncooked vegetables can be a trigger for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. However, not all vegetables are bad for you. This is mainly because uncooked vegetables can cause bloating.
Baked potatoes, on the other hand, are great for your Irritable Bowel Syndrome because they contain soluble fiber that can be especially useful for diarrhea.
One of the significant complications of Irritable Bowel Syndrome is inflammation.
The easiest way to fight inflammation is to consume foods that are rich in Omega-3. Salmon is one of those foods which can help reduce inflammation. Most fish including Whitefish, Mackerel, Rainbow trout, and Black cod are rich in Omega-3.
Nuts are another great source of Omega-3. They are an excellent source for fatty acids, protein, and fiber. Even though people worry that nuts contain a high amount of fat, this is mostly unsaturated. Furthermore, nuts are excellent for your cholesterol and help you regulate excessive eating.
However, nuts are strong for your digestive system and should be consumed in small amounts. These are some of the nuts that can be great for Irritable Bowel Syndrome:
Don’t forget if your stomach and digestive system work together brilliantly, your overall health will be top notch too. Health comes first!
