home t special focus t digestive health

Diet and nutrient intake are critically important in the proper function of the digestive system. We must keep the system running properly if it is to perform it?s function adequately. The digestive system is responsible for the complex process of breaking down fuel (food) and allowing for the absorption of nutrients into our bodies. Failure can occur at either point, leading to a defect in digestion (maldigestion) or a failure in absorption (malabsorption), which may trigger the development of a number of related digestive problems. Because the symptoms for both maldigestion and malabsorption overlap, these conditions are difficult to diagnose.


Other problems related to the digestive system include constipation, candidiasis, abdominal bloating, and irritable bowel syndrome. Constipation effects over 4 million people on a regular basis. Typically, this is caused by poor fiber intake, poor water intake and imbalance in the bacterial content of the colon, or candidiasis. Candidiasis can be caused by a deficiency of friendly bacteria, which allows an overgrowth of yeast (the most common being Candida albicans) and can lead to symptoms manifested by reflux, abdominal bloating, lethargy and a host of other symptoms. Irritable bowel syndrome is one of the more common digestion problems seen in the country, and candida may also play a role in its symptoms.   Read more below...

As we age, the function of the intestinal system changes. Often, acid levels decrease, and poor digestion occurs, which can lead to symptoms of indigestion, heartburn, and bloating. Digestive enzymes may help reduce the occurrence of these symptoms.                                                                                                                                                     (This article provided by VitaCost.com)
