If you have been struggling with digestion problems, it might not be a medical condition, but from the types of foods you are eating. There are certain foods that are really good for digestion, and others that can be really bad for it. Here are some of the best foods for digestion.

Fermented Foods

Fermented Foods such as kombucha, kefir, kimchi, and sauerkraut are really good foods to add to your regular diet rotation. If you can find ways to implement these foods, you will soon notice how much better you feel. These are an excellent way to improve your digestion thanks to the healthy bacteria they contain. Many functional medicine practitioners will recommend fermented foods if you have digestion issues since they are really good for your gut health.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a superfood and also happen to be really good for your digestion. These seeds are a superfood because of how many nutrients they contain. You will get lots of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They also have omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, both of which are great for improving your digestion and helping things move more smoothly. The nutrients in chia seeds can also help with regulating bowel function, reducing inflammation in your body, and lowering your cholesterol. All you need are a couple of tablespoons of the seeds each day, which are easy to add to smoothies, yogurt, or topping on salads.

Bananas

If you are looking for fruit that is going to help with your digestion, go for bananas. These are amazing for you, packed with nutrients, and very easy to tolerate. Bananas are super easy on the stomach and often one of the only foods recommended when you have the flu or a serious illness because of how easy they are to tolerate. Try to eat at least one banana a day, whether you eat it on its own, spread on toast, or topped on your cereal.

Lean Protein

Don’t forget about lean protein, including poultry and fish. These foods contain nutrients and omega-3 fatty acids, without increasing sugar and other ingredients you don’t need in your foods. Lean protein is a lot easier to digest than red meat, so going for salmon or chicken is a much better option for your gut health than steak.
