Show: Maintain Digestive Health

NCD_ShowThanksgiving indulgence can come at a great price. The average American may consume more than 4,500 calories and 229 grams of fat from snacking and eating on Thanksgiving, according to a research by the Calorie Control Council. To burn it off, the American Council on Exercise estimated that a 160 lb. person would have to run at a moderate pace for four hours, swim for five hours or walk 30 miles.

Such a feast can overload our digestive system. Before we head into the holiday season, it is good to have our digestive system in check. Here are some tips for you.

In “What’s Good for the Gut”, Dr. Mead discusses the benefits of probiotics and how we can add beneficial bacteria to our diet.

The recent show on Digestive Health features a fun discussion of how our gut health affects our overall wellbeing, and how we can maintain good gut health.
