People have been telling you for as long as you can remember that vitamins are the way to ensure that every part of your body is working the way it should be. However, you may not have realized until getting older just how much help certain parts of your body could use. This is especially true when it comes to your digestive system. If you are not very conscious of what vitamins the food you consume contains, or if you fear it may not contain any vitamins at all, you may want to consider getting back on the right track by taking certain vitamin supplements. Below are just a few of the vitamins that are known to have positive effects on digestive systems.

Vitamin A
This vitamin nourished the mucosal tissue in your body which in turns makes sure that your digestive tract is working properly. If you aren’t one for taking vitamins, try eating foods like sweet potato, carrots, kale and spinach which are all rich in Vitamin A.

Vitamin B
There are many different kinds of Vitamin B, all of which have a different positive effect on your digestive system. B1 fuels your metabolism, B2 and B3 help you to break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats that you ingest in your food, B7 helps to produce a healthier cholesterol level in your body and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. B Vitamins can also be found in foods like fish, beans, dairy products, and meats.

Vitamin D
The nerves in your digestive tract rely on a healthy amount of calcium, which comes from Vitamin D in order to be their best. Vitamin D can be found in capsule form and also in sunlight, salmon, dairy products, and mushrooms.
