Ayurveda Life Hacks: Maintain Healthy Digestion While Traveling

Traveling into different time zones throws off the body’s patterns, including digestion. As you know, simple things like using other people’s bathrooms, eating earlier or later, eating out more and socializing while you eat can lead to digestive troubles like constipation, bloating, weight gain and heart burn.

If, like me, you eat for energy and enjoyment, fasting for a day while traveling is not the answer. Aside from the common sense guidelines of drinking plenty of water, exercising daily, choosing seasonal fruit and high fiber foods over dairy and bread, I fall back on these three Ayurveda digestion hacks.

Triphala, “three bitter fruits” in Sanskrit, consists of Amalaki, Bibhitaki and Haritaki. It is a powerful rejuvenating tonic that aids digestion and nutrient absorption through the colon, while maintaining regularity. Take it before bed to avoid constipation during every trip.

Aloe Vera Juice, a natural laxative and heartburn soother, also balances stomach acidity and aids in nutrient absorption.



Antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids, aloe juice naturally cleanses the gastrointestinal (GI) tract of remaining food particles that slow the process of digestion. You can’t drink too much of it.
