The human digestive system is a very complex process of breaking down of the food we eat into
very small particles that can be used by our bodies. All the fats, carbohydrates, protein, and all
the vitamins and nutrients are then used for growth, energy, repair, and all the systems that help
our bodies maintain good health are obtained through the digestive system.
This is a wonderful amazing way that our bodies work and when it works well it is truly awesome.
However, with the way Americans currently eat; what with fast food, huge restaurant portions,
hectic lifestyles, sugar, fat everything that disrupts our natural digestive systems it is no wonder
that we have so many digestive health problems and obesity in our society.
There are so many diseases and disorders that can disrupt your digestive system or be caused
by improper diet, such as acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, celiac disease, diverticulitis,
heart burn, Chrons disease, constipation, and even allergies, just to name a few. Considering all
this we must start taking better care of ourselves.
Good healthy digestion is the foundation of good health. In order to be alive, have good energy,
sleep well and feel happy we must have proper nutrition and a healthy digestive system. Belching,
vomiting, diarrhea and constipation are all symptoms of an upset unhealthy digestive system. So
how do we keep our digestive systems healthy and working at the most optimum degree for good
First everyone needs a healthy diet, good fats, fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy carbohydrates
such as whole wheat products and sufficient fiber to keep the digestive tract moving. This is, of
course, unless you require a special diet for an ongoing disease or nutrition problem.
Next, you need to chew your food thoroughly to begin the digestive process. Fast food, busy
schedules, and improper diet have caused us to disrupt the digestive process. Without proper
digestion of our food, our systems back up and the rotting leftover foods that remain after the
process has removed the protein, fat and carbohydrates are not eliminated as they should be.
This can cause various conditions and diseases; besides that, it just makes us feel sluggish and
uncomfortable. So sit back relax and chew your food properly.
It is very difficult to obtain all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients through our daily diets. Food
today is not as nutrient rich as it was in the past. Farmers use chemicals and other things during
the growing process of the crops and the soil is depleted of most of the minerals and nutrients
that we received from our food in the past.
Then you should consider adding natural healthy supplement that assist the body’s digestive
functions to your diet and they will promote digestive health and a better sense of well-being. As
we always recommend, check with your primary health care provider before adding anything
new to your diet. Because you do not want to add anything to your diet that will aggravate or
cause problems to your individual health.
