Keep your­self hy­drated: Drink­ing a good amount of wa­ter helps in fight­ing 90% of the dis­eases and is an es­sen­tial part of the di­ges­tive sys­tem. Fi­bre present in the body pulls wa­ter into the colon and helps the body in cre­at­ing softer, bulkier stools. In­crease fi­bre in­take: In­clud­ing el­e­ments in your diet that are high in fi­bre and rich in whole grains, veg­eta­bles, legumes and fruits can im­prove your di­ges­tive tract. Meals on time: One must set a par­tic­u­lar time for any meal of the day. This makes the body set its own body clock for meals. If this clock is dis­turbed, one may de­velop acid­ity or con­sti­pa­tion. Avoid fatty food: Fatty foods, gen­er­ally, curb the di­ges­tive process. Limit cof­fee: Ex­ces­sive in­take of caf­feine ham­pers the smooth func­tion­ing of the di­ges­tive sys­tem.
