Who doesn't wish to have a healthy digestive system? A healthy and sound digestive system is key to good health and even weight loss. Our diet plays a crucial role in promoting or degrading digestive health. Consuming green vegetables that contain fibre in good amounts may help to a great extent in feeding the good bacteria in the gut. According to the book, 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing House, "Eating plenty of fresh, young, green vegetables is a good way to cleanse the body." A bowlful of asparagus with mint and chives can help in boosting digestion. The book 'Healing Foods' notes, "Asparagus stimulates the digestion by acting as a prebiotic. It also contains compounds that have an anti-inflammatory effect, so it is beneficial if you have high blood pressure and blood sugar imbalance. Young mint and chives gently invigorate the body."
