If you’re not suffering from a complicated digestive condition, it is quite easy to improve how your digestive tract works. Few simple tweaks can make a world of a difference!

Always have a bottle when you’re on and about.
Sip water whenever you can. It will make you hydrated, invigorated and overall, less hungry!
– Chew slowly
Chew slowly and enjoy your food. Take small bites. They will be much easier to digest.
Movements massage your gut.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to run a marathon! If you’re super-busy, exercise 5-10 minutes a day. Over time, you’ll see the difference!
-Eat lots of vegetables.
They help with digestion just as much as water does. Eating greens daily can help you maintain regularity. Sneak vegetables in wherever you can (sauces, snack plates, smoothies).
Don’t go overboard, though. 5 portions a day is a recommended dose of fruit and veg.
Always balance greens, grains, meats, soluble and insoluble fiber. Too much of the ‘good stuff’ can have the reverse effect on the digestive system (it can cause diarrhea and bloating).
