Hey everybody, I'm just curious what you all do to keep your digestive system on track.  There are some specialty foods and supplements out there that help.   Let me know.

I eat food, drink water, and get a little bit of exercise. I probably get about half the RDA of fiber, too much refined food. It's working for me!

You and me both. The RDA of fiber is tough to hit, especially if you don't have food that you like. Have you tried LiveActive foods though? They have products that have prebiotic fiber.

Since my body is functioning perfectly with grocery store brands and garden produce, I'll stick with what I am doing, but thanks!

Some Tips To Optimal Digestive Health 1. Eat whole unprocessed foods. Make sure to include plenty of fiber from foods like vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. 2. Eliminate food allergies. If you think you have food sensitivities, try an elimination diet. Cut out gluten, dairy, yeast, corn, soy, and eggs for a week or two and see how your gut feels and what happens to your other symptoms. 3. Rebuild your rain forest of friendly bacteria. Take probiotic supplements. They will help rebuild the healthy bacteria so essential to good gut health. 4. Get good fat. Take extra omega-3 supplements, which help cool inflammation in the gut.

You can increase intake of water, use fibrous food in diet, use curd in regular eating, use of pro-biotic will improve your digestive system.
