11 Yoga asanas for digestion

The human body is an advanced and complex machine that is capable of incredible feats and the body needs nutrients in order to function properly. It gets its nutrients from the foods and beverages we eat but in addition to vitamins, minerals and water, digestion provides your body with proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. If you want to remain healthy, you must ensure that your stomach is functioning properly. The digestive system breaks down nutrients, which the body then absorbs for use in cell growth, repair and energy. Some Yoga postures stimulate, cleanse, and support a healthy digestive system. Vajrasana is the only pose that can be performed immediately after eating. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Himalayan Siddhaa Akshar, Founder of Akshar Yoga Institutions, Himalaya Yoga Ashrama and World Yoga Organisation, revealed to Zarafshan Shiraz a list of 10 Yoga exercises for digestion and encouraged practitioners to try to maintain each asana for five sets of no less than 30 seconds. (Yan Krukau) 13
