How the Mediterranean diet can aid digestive health
With so many fad diets out there to keep up with, we thought we’d break down for you just what the Mediterranean diet includes.
As Spaniards with Mediterranean blood coursing through us, we, of course, shout from the rooftops as much as we can the benefits of a Mediterranean diet on digestive health. At La Española, we live and breathe it through our approach to food and our brand philosophy in general.
With so many fad diets out there to keep up with, we thought we’d break down for you just what the Mediterranean diet includes, its endless benefits on overall health and primarily, just how it can revolutionise the quality of your digestive system.
Let’s take a look!
The key to good gut health
The digestive system is a complex part of the human body to understand, and when any or all of its many parts are inflamed, upset or unbalanced, disaster can strike!
An unhealthy digestive system can be life-altering, painful and downright annoying, and can have many causes, from auto-immune disorders to bloating, gas to heartburn and even anxiety. It is also an important part of your body to keep healthy, as it can lead to other health problems.
The diet you choose can go a long way towards making a big impact on your overall digestive health - and the Mediterranean diet is the one to do it!
Not just enough fad diet!
Over-intake of processed, fatty and sugary foods had lead to a virtual epidemic of underlying stomach and digestive issues in today’s society.
The Mediterranean diet, an ancient food ritual followed by many European nations, is a proven aid in getting your digestive system to an optimum level of health, calming down inflammation and boosting good bacteria levels.
With many arguing that it is the “world’s healthiest diet”, it approaches food choices from a natural, authentic standpoint. It takes it back to basics in the best way possible.
Do you love getting your fill of fruits and veggies, beans and nuts, wholegrains, legumes and of course… olive oil? Well, enjoy as much of these as you like, as these are the staples of the Mediterranean diet!
The best part? You can still enjoy lean meat, dairy and red wine (yes!) in moderation, because what Mediterranean doesn’t love a lovely, robust red to end the day with?
