3 foods for good digestion

Incorporate these healthy options into your diet to promote good gut bacteria.

Being dedicated to digestive health can help athletes feel their best and meet wellness goals. Here, three foods fitness professionals recommend to their clients.

Apple Cider Vinegar

The tart drink can soothe even the unruliest of GI systems since it feeds the gut's good bacteria.

Cashew Butter

Foods that offer both healthy fats and protein, like this nut butter, will be used by the body to both repair muscle and slow digestion, eliminating middle-of-the-night hunger that can disturb sleep.


If you normally reach for yogurt, trade up to the fermented drink kefir. Bonnie Taub-Dix, RD, author of Read It Before You Eat It, notes that it’s lower in lactose, making it easier to digest.
