Ways to Improve Nutrient Absorption

Colon Hygiene Institute recommends ways to improve nutrient absorption in Las VegasEven if you are eating all the right fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods, if your body isn’t getting all that it can out of them, they are not as beneficial as they could be. Colon Hygiene Institute would like to recommend some ways you can improve the amount of nutrition your body gets for a healthier you in Las Vegas.

Match – Different nutrients paired together are more readily absorbed by the body than just one. Pair avocado and tomatoes, for example, and you’ll see greater health benefits than from eating just one of them. Vitamin C-rich foods and green tea together can help increase absorption of catechins (antioxidants). And when you eat all three major B vitamins together (thiamine, B-6, and B-12), they work better to prevent artery damage.

Add fat – A low-fat dressing on your salad may actually be preventing you from fully absorbing all of the available nutrients. While it’s wise to stay away from super heavy and calorie-dense creamy dressings, a little bit of olive oil on your salad or used to cook your roasted or sauteed veggies can actually help you get the most out of the nutritional value of your meal.

Chew – Digestion as a process essentially involves breaking down food from large pieces into smaller and smaller pieces that your body can use on a micro level. Of course, this process starts in your mouth, with both digestive enzymes in your saliva and the actual physical breakdown of food through chewing. You can make the rest of the digestion process easier for your body by thoroughly chewing your food to make the pieces smaller and to give the enzymes in your mouth the time to do their jobs.

Colonics – Another way to help your body’s ability to absorb nutrients is with colon hydrotherapy, which is the gentle rinsing of the colon with warm water, to remove encrusted fecal matter, gas and mucus. This allows vital nutrients to be absorbed more easily and leaves you feeling rejuvenated and healthier.

If you feel your body is not absorbing the nutrients it should, or to just start fresh, take steps now for proper colon hygiene and regular maintenance to help you feel better.
