5 Food to Improve Your Bowel Movements

Assalamualaikum and Hello!

As tough as it is to admit, EVERYONE POOPS!

While it is not one of the fanciest topic to be discuss buttttt it is very important! Healthy and frequent bowel movements show us that our digestive system is working and our guts are HAPPY.

Unfortunately, gut health has been overlooked when it should really been focused on. Everything starts with your GUT and your digestion. 

Without proper care of your gut and digestive system, you may happen to come across: 

  • Constipation
  • Indigestion
  • Bloated stomach
  • Excessive weight gain
  • Wind

In order to properly absorb nutrients from our food & supplements and to rid of the waste, our guts need to be in a healthy condition. Difficult and infrequent bowel movements can certainly lead to unhealthy gut.

Here’s what I would do for a healthy and frequent bowel movements:

  1. Include fibre in my diet – if you are having trouble with your bowel movements, it’s very possible you don’t have enough dietary fibre in your diet. Apples is a good examples as the pectin in apple is amazing at binding up toxins in your body and flushing them out as waste
  2. Eat a lot of leafy dark greens – dark leafy greens is a great source of magnesium. Another reason you’re not going to the toilet often is the lack of magnesium in your body.
  3. Aloe Vera – The more I learn about this miracle plant, the more I fall in love with it. Aloe Vera is a great option for loosening up stool, but it does even more than that. It can actually work toward helping repair stomach lining damage in your body! Drink fresh aloe juice first thing in the morning and on an empty stomach for the best results.
  4. Fermented Foods – As I told you above, gut health is of upmost importance when it comes to bowel movements and the elimination of wasted from your body. For this reason I am including fermented foods. They help restore the good, healthy bacteria to your gut. Yes there is good and bad bacteria and fermented foods can help restore the good bacteria in your gut. A happy gut = good bowel movements! Try out some kimchee
  5. Min Kaffe – my personal favourite! A great combination of robusta coffee beans and bamboo salt. Has no sugar in it and a great companion to your breakfast. Get a box of 20 sachets for only RM33 for a great source of magnesium as well! 

Hope these tips could help you in improving your bowel movement.
