GI Transit

June 12, 2018

 

 

It takes on average 2-3 days for the GI tract to digest what we eat and empty from our...well...you know what!

 

Most of the food contents spend time in our large intestines.

That is a long time for food to be in our GI system and this is where the importance of adequate hydration and fiber come into play to help keep our system regular.

 

Think about the effect that certain inflammatory foods like processed meat/foods, trans fat and added sugars may have on the GI system after being in our gut for days.,,yikes!

 

Focus on adequate water intake, fiber, and low-inflammatory foods like fruit, veggies and nut to keep your gut happy and flowing smoothly!

 

Eat Well, Live Well.
