8. Beat indigestion

We all eat too much at Christmas, and indigestion is a common problem. Eating lots of rich food and drinking too much alcohol leads to excess flatulence, bloating and gurgling in the stomach.

And ironically, the worse our diet is, the more likely we are to suffer from indigestion - one of the main causes is that our everyday diet contains too much salt, sugar and junk food.

One of the quickest and easiest ways of preventing tummy troubles is to drink a probiotic drink, such as Yakult, every morning. They contain friendly bacteria that help to balance your gut and hopefully make indigestion a thing of the past.
