Bad foods for digestion

There are certain foods that make digestion difficult, either because they are too acidic and cause irritation, or because they are not properly cooked. Know which are the most negative for your digestive system.

When it comes to digestion well, it is necessary not only to opt for digestive foods that help in a really positive way when it comes to improving our digestion naturally; It is also necessary to maintain healthy lifestyle habits, avoiding some products that harm our stomach and produce flatulence (such as alcohol), and in turn always try to eat calmly, without haste.

It is very common that, today, we are always running from one place to another, so that those rush and those eagerness to get to everything before we tend to transfer them to our way of eating. In this way, it is common to have a quick breakfast with little time to enjoy what we are eating, or even we do not have breakfast, we have a lunch that instead of lasting at least 15 minutes lasts only 5, and we don’t even talk about food.

It can also be common for indigestion to have been caused by eating foods that are bad for digestion. We indicate which the ones that make it difficult are:

Citrus drinks

Although healthy due to its richness in vitamin C, the truth is that drinks that are too acidic can irritate the esophagus, causing the appearance of heartburn.

Although acid reflux is normal, when we choose to consume highly acidic drinks, this additional acid can cause digestive problems and affect digestion if, for example, we take them on an empty stomach.

In this sense, if we choose to have a glass of orange or lemon juice for breakfast, it is best to never do it on an empty stomach without first having eaten something.

Over-seasoned foods

Those foods highly seasoned with strong spices for our stomach, such as paprika or jalapeños can irritate the lining of the esophagus.

Therefore, if you suffer from indigestion or have a delicate stomach, it is best to opt for other much milder spices.

Beware of fried foods

Precisely because they have a high fat content, it is very common that they not only cause indigestion, but also some stomach problems.

In fact, they tend to especially harm people with intestinal inflammation, and can cause other associated symptoms, such as diarrhea.
