Feeling sluggish after meals? Want to improve your digestion and overall gut health?

As we age, our digestive system slows down and becomes less efficient. This can lead to constipation, as well as other digestive problems. Additionally, the muscles in the digestive tract may weaken, making it harder for food to move through the system.1

Here are four simple steps to boost your digestion and feel better – and yes, including probiotics in your diet is one of them!

  1. Eat a balanced diet: Foods such as whole wheat products, quinoa, brown rice, legumes, leafy greens like kale, almonds, walnuts, seeds, and fruits with edible skins are high in fibre, which helps to keep your digestion regular and prevent constipation.2
  2. Stay hydrated: Drinking enough water keeps things moving through your digestive tract smoothly and prevents hard, dry stools.3
  3. Take probiotics:Probiotics, such as Reuterina® daily,4are beneficial bacteria that live in your gut and help maintain a healthy microorganisms balance.
  4. Get regular exercise:Physical activity helps to stimulate the muscles in your gut and keeps things moving.5Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity every day, such as brisk walking.

    The Reuterina® family of probiotics are available from selected Dis-Chem and Clicks stores and independent pharmacies nationwide. For more information, visit: and join the conversations on Instagram and Facebook.
