Top 4 Foods That Are Bad For Your Digestive System

Most people, today, aren’t as careful about what they eat as they should be. Most simply don’t even bother to find out if what they are eating is in any way, affecting their health.

Most of the foods readily available today are really very bad for your digestive system. But due to the fact that poor digestion does not usually present any obvious symptoms, you probably have no idea and keep on eating these foods.

Here are 4 foods that affect your health, and digestive system in particular:

1. Soda Pop

Studies have shown that the sugar, fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners found in soda can change the way your gut bacteria metabolizes energy. They also cause an inflammation in your digestive tract and change the communities of bacteria and yeast living in your digestive tract for the worse.

2. Vegetable Oils

Vegetable oils are found in almost every processed food available out there. The problem with this food item is that it’s all liquid at room temperature, and this indicates that they’re most likely made up of polyunsaturated fats.

According to research, the breaking down of polyunsaturated fats can often lead to the start of inflammation, cancer, and atherosclerosis.

3. Coffee

Often, people take a cup of coffee each time they feel stressed because they feel coffee would help in the situation. But the truth is, coffee actually does the opposite. Not only does coffee trigger the release of stress hormones, it has also been discovered that it contains a type of protein similar to the type found in wheat gluten.

This can cause your immune system to react to coffee just like it would react to the protein in wheat – your body may respond to coffee with same inflammatory response that it has with gluten. This is called a cross-reaction. Research has also shown that coffee isn’t only the culprit here. The proteins in milk, oats, corn and rice are also a great risk.

4. Beer, Wine and Spirits

I’m sure you’ve probably heard that alcohol is bad for your health on so many levels. This is true. Beer is made with cereal grains that contain a considerable amount of gluten. Due to the fact that it is a fermented beverage, it also contains living organisms that can feed Candida yeast overgrowth.

Research has also shown that alcohol directly damages cells along the digestive tract. That’s where wine and spirits come in. Alcohol also does a lot of damage in the gut and the inner ecosystem.


It’s very important to take note of the kind of foods you eat, because it has a lot to do with not only your digestive system, but also your entire body health as a whole.
