OLIVIE TIPS: 10 tips to digest well!
Heaviness, bloating, stomach cramps, acid reflux: you have trouble digesting? Ten simple tips to improve the situation smoothly.
Avoid certain foods
Some changes in eating habits often help to digest better. First enemy: excess fat. Limit deli meats, red meats, casseroles, cheese or butter. Fats, very long to digest, stay in the stomach for a long time. Other foods ferment in the digestive system and cause bloating: cooked cabbage, onion, white beans ... Also beware of foods that aggravate heartburn: spicy dishes, chocolate, mint or citrus. In practice: Consume greasy foods in moderation. But do not stop the raw oils good for health, like olive oil.We strongly advise you to take OLIVIE PLUS 30X * which is a natural concentrate of olive oil molecules that protect our body from many diseases.

Drink all day long
We all need a liter and a half to two liters of fluid a day. This makes the digestive system work, in particular by improving the efficiency of the fibers. Water remains the most effective drink. But you can also drink herbal teas, veggie soups and juices. Especially low acid juices, like pineapple. Coffee and tea favor heartburn. They release the muscle that is supposed to block the reflux. As for sodas, they acidify and fill the belly with air. In practice: Drink regularly during the day. But a little less just before the meal. Too much fluid before eating can dilute digestive secretions.
At least 30 g of fiber per day
Faced with digestive disorders, think of the fibers. These substances of plant origin stimulate the transit smoothly. Present in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, pulses or oleaginous fruits, they fall into two groups: - Insoluble fibers absorb water, swell and accelerate digestion. - Soluble fibers form a gel in the intestine and facilitate the elimination of food residues. In practice: Consume at least 30 g of fiber per day (100 g of oat flakes, 50 g of almonds and 50 g of dried apricots, for example). Beware of fortified cereals that irritate the intestines. And think about varying the sources of fiber.
Take the time to eat
In terms of digestion, it is better to avoid precipitation. Eating slowly brings many benefits: - It helps to chew food and reduce the subsequent work of the digestive system: as many risks of stomach cramps and less. - Taking your time also allows you to eat less. The reason: the brain takes about 20 minutes to feel satiety. - A less filled stomach also makes less pressure on the esophagus and decreases the risk of acid reflux. In practice: Chew each food well before swallowing. Do not hesitate to time yourself to reach at least 20 minutes per meal. You can also have 4 or 5 light snacks a day rather than 2 very heavy meals, difficult to digest.
No nap right after the meal
After eating, do not give in to the temptation of the pillow. Especially in case of a large meal: the reclining position favors acid reflux. For a purely mechanical reason: the contents of the stomach are no longer subject to gravity. It can more easily ascend to the esophagus and cause burns. In practice: Allow at least two hours between meal and bedtime or nap. The time that food goes down from the stomach to the intestines. If the desire to sleep overwhelms you, raise your head when lying down. This can reduce the risk of reflux. You can position your bed in an incline with pillows under your mattress for example.
