Good Health Starts with Good Digestion
Your digestive system is one of the most important systems in the whole body. If your body cannot properly digest and absorb nutrients and eliminate waste products, then it is difficult if not impossible to achieve optimal health.
Proper gut function is critical to addressing many seemingly unrelated conditions.
If your gut is not happy, your body is not happy!
Poor Digestion Impacts More Than You May Realize!
When something goes wrong during the process of digestion, it affects not just your gut, but can have a wide range of affects on the rest of the body. It can affect your immune system, nutrient absorption, allergies, skin health, inflammation and energy production.
Even if you eat what you consider to be an ideal diet, if your body is not breaking down, absorbing, and utilizing your nutrients, it won’t matter what food you put on your plate because your body won’t be able to use it.
Common medications taken to suppress stomach acid may actually make digestion worse, and often limit your body’s ability to absorb nutrients such as calcium.
Poor digestive enzyme function can lead to trouble breaking down food which in turn can contribute to indigestion, gas, bloating, and constipation.
A significant portion of your immune system resides in your digestive track to keep microbes and allergens from getting into our bodies. If you digestive system isn’t healthy, neither is this gut immune function, making your prone to immune dysfunction.
