Understanding Digestion

Slow digestion makes you feeling sluggish, bloated, constipated, and experience unpleasant side effects like cramping and gas. Our bodies require a healthy amount of intestinal flora for optimal digestive functioning. Proper digestion means more energy, healthy weight loss, and regular bowel movements. Discover informative articles, helpful tips, and customer stories to relieve your digestion pain.

Introduction to Digestion

Digestion involves the break down of food molecules made into water-soluble molecules, which absorb into the body.

 

Digestion is mechanical and chemical as foods are chewed then digested by enzymes.

 

There are several common digestive disorders:

 

  • Heartburn
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Cramping
  • Gas

A significant contributor to digestive problems is the type of foods being consumed.

 

A lifestyle change is frequently effective long-term than medication; a balanced diet, staying hydrated, managing stress, and regular exercise, ensure proper digestion and unwanted symptoms.
