Yoga Poses For Better Digestion

Ayurveda says that the root cause of all the disorders in the body lies in poor digestion. Therefore, it is very important for the body to digest the food well. To digest the food well, the digestive fire, or "agni," should be strong. When the digestive fire is strong, food will be digested well and quickly.

Food digestion depends on the type of food you are eating, the time at which you are eating the food, your lifestyle, etc. Although in the case of indigestion, people today are accustomed to taking medicine. However, with only a few yoga poses, or "yoga asanas," you could improve your digestion.

How do yoga poses improve digestion?
Yoga asanas have been used for centuries to improve and strengthen the digestion and digestive system. But what is the science behind them?

Through yoga

  • The digestive fire, or agni, is stimulated. This has dual effects: it increases appetite and balances the metabolism.
  • The body is stretched, and the abdominal muscles get a good massage. This causes food to move in the digestive tract, which results in better digestion.
  • You will be relieved of constipation.
  • Circulation of blood to the digestive organs increases, which aids digestion.
  • The mind becomes active, which helps you eat mindfully.
  • The body does not allow the fat to be deposited.
  • The body is detoxed. Toxins flush out and you feel better.

Now you know how yoga poses help you with better digestion. Now let us tell you the yoga asanas that you should be doing and in what way they help your body.
