Caffeine

Decrease caffeine: Drinks high in caffeine reduces the efficiency of the detoxifying ability of your liver, in turn slowing down your digestion. Switch to drinks low in caffeine like green tea as it helps to improve your digestion and improves your metabolism.

Dairy Products

Ditch the dairy: Dairy products increase mucus and toxin accumulation in your liver leading to poor digestion. To make up for your daily protein needs load up on plant-based proteins like lentils as they are easy on your digestion. NOTE: Yogurt can be an exception as it has many gut-friendly bacteria that strengthen your digestive tract.  Also Read - World Retina Day: Preventive Measures To Manage Progressive Retinal Diseases
