Gifts for Your Gut
Your digestive tract is amazing. It fuels your body and helps keep you strong, healthy and resilient all year long. This Holiday Season, why not show your affection with something special. Take a few moments to educate yourself on probiotics and fibre -- two gifts your gut will thank you for! 


Probiotic Presents

With stress and an overall change in routine, your digestive system deviates from its regular patterns. This can result in constipation or diarrhea. As a pre-holiday kick-off, consider adding probiotics to your diet in the form of dietary supplements or probiotic packed foods such as yogurt. A friendly bacteria, probiotics are known to help digest food, maintain health and fight disease.


Feed your Fibre-Famished Gut! 

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season means grab-and-go snacks, big meals and indulgences that don't necessary benefit our bellies. We neglect the necessities and fibre is one of these. We should aim to consume about 30 grams of fibre every day. This is as easy as munching on a mixture of fruits, vegetables, beans, seeds and nuts. Your body will thank you when you fibre up -- you'll feel more energetic, stay fuller longer, fight disease and feel great.

Eating foods you don't regularly consume -- and in larger portions -- can result in excess bloating, gas, and even heartburn. These are familiar symptoms that too many people experience during these days of celebration.

If you have a bloated belly, or are living with heartburn more than once a week, you may find yourself searching desperately for some relief.  Let the CDHF help you with Top Tips for:
