A healthy diet is always a good habit to form regardless of age.  It seems that there is only one other group that has a harder time in ensuring good digestive health and that are young adults.  It's so easy to skip over the good foods and head over to the fast food and other junk foods so readily available.  It's common to hear that a good diet full of high fiber, low in processed carbs/sugar and an additional supplement of an all natural probiotic might be a good trio in helping our digestive systems stay up to par.  ReNew Life, The Digestive Care Company, understands that many young adults don't realize how much a good digestive system can help you maintain comfortable bowel movements as well.  This reminded me of my two cousins who both had issues with their bowel movements as young adults and now that I remember how they both ate, I understand why.


Signs and Symptoms of Impaired Digestion:

Signs & Symptoms of Impaired Digestion



  • Gas and bloating [D]
  • Occasional diarrhea [G]
  • Occasional constipation [F]
  • Heartburn and GERD [B]
  • Indigestion
  • Irritable bowel (IBS) [E]
  • Leaky gut
  • Liver toxicity [A]
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Low energy
  • Dry/oily skin
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Allergies
  • Brain Fog
  • Yeast overgrowth [C]





  • There are other areas that can help improve the gut such as taking a dose of an all natural probiotic within two to three hours of taking an antibiotic.  I had no idea but it makes sense given what antibiotics are made to do.  Daily exercise is also key to not only overall health but it aids in a healthy metabolism and digestive system.  My two younger children don't eat as healthy as I like and my youngest has bowel issues where I have to give her a pediatric laxative from time to time.  I need to start giving her a probiotic due to how they help.  In case you are wondering, here is what they are:



    Probiotics:

    Ultimate Flora Adult Formula 15 Billion
    Each of ReNew Life's probiotic supplements are high-potency, multi-billion-count formulas combines clinically proven probiotic strains in fewer capsules to ensure maximum effectiveness.  They also have an advance Enteric-Guard technology to help protect the active probiotics from harsh stomach acid thus transporting them directly to the intestines.  There are many varieties and you can click here to find the one best for you.

    If you have any young adults, let them know the importance of a good digestive system.  Just remember that for all of us, we need to take steps to protect our health:

    1. Eat a good diet rich in fiber and low in carbs/processed sugars
    2. Exercise 
    3. Take a probiotic supplement daily and within 2-3 hours post antibiotic ingestion.
    4. Having 2-3 bowel movements a day is healthy

    As part of my program for a healthier digestive system, I'm going to review, at a later date, ReNew's Diet Start Cleanse.

    Until then, all you young adults, learn about keeping that potty humor in the know as it will make you feel better even if the topic may be unpleasant!

    I was taking probiotics because I have leaky gut and follow the GAPS diet, was using the one they recommend but very expensive so I have none now. But I need some, for sure.
