NDSU Extension Family Nutrition Program
Nourish Your
Digestive System
for Optimal Health
Digestive disorders are among the most common problems in health care today. About 30 to 40 percent of adults say they experience frequent indigestion, and more than 50 million visits are made every year to health-care facilities for symptoms related to the digestive system.

Some of the causes of digestive distress are overeating and stress, lack of physical activity, and a poor diet. Suffering from heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, and excess gas does not have to be the norm. By taking care of your digestive system, you can become a “regular” human being.

If you’d like to make some changes in your diet or lifestyle to improve your digestive system health, the North Dakota State University Extension Service can help. The Extension Office in Renville County is holding a class at 1:30 p.m. on September 19th at the Mohall Senior Center. You’ll learn about using fiber and water for a healthy stomach, suggestions for appropriate probiotic supplementation, and how stress affects digestion.

This class is part of NDSU Extension’s Nourishing Boomers and Beyond program. The program is designed to provide rural North Dakotans age 50 and older with information and strategies to reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases. Nourishing Boomers and Beyond offers classes on a different topic each month. Participants will be able to take part in hands-on activities and discussions, and they’ll receive material such as handouts and healthful recipes to take home.

Visit the program’s website at if you aren’t able to attend a class or if you want more information on the topic covered in a session. Anyone can sign up for the free monthly newsletter by visiting the website or contacting your local Extension Office.
