4. Restart Your Intestines
It may come as a surprise, but your intestines contain a large network of nerves that can become short-circuited by your emotions. When you’re calm and relaxed, your digestive system can function properly. However, when you experience stress, your intestines can get out of whack, resulting in constipation, bloating or diarrhea.
To banish pain in your gut and restart your intestines, turn to prebiotics. Prebiotics are the foods you need to eat in order to aid digestion of probiotics – the good bacteria found in foods such as Greek yogurt. Without prebiotics, the “bad” unwanted bacteria have an unfair advantage over probiotics and can cause a range of issues, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
