Improve your Digestion. Improve your Overall Wellbeing

Did you know that your gut plays a significant role in your over well-being? Your digestive system is more than just a food-processing centre. It’s a complex network of organs & bacteria that can significantly impact your health. By incorporating simple dietary changes, understanding the importance of gut-friendly nutrients, and leveraging the benefits of supplementing nutrients, you can optimise your digestive system and improve your overall health.

Your digestive system consists of your mouth, oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gall bladder and your large and small intestines. Digestion is important because your body needs nutrients from food and drink to work properly and stay healthy. Each part of your digestive system works to move food through your gastrointestinal tract and break it down into smaller pieces so that your body can absorb and move nutrients to where they are needed. 1

Factors that can upset your gastrointestinal tract

To improve your digestion, you first need to be aware of factors that can upset your gastrointestinal tract and its ability to keep moving which can include: 3

  • Eating a diet low in fibre
  • Travelling and changes in routine, like when you go on holiday
  • Stress
  • Resisting the urge to go (make a bowel movement)
  • Taking antacids medicines containing calcium or aluminium

Common gastrointestinal upsets include indigestion, constipation, nausea, gas, bloating, and diarrhoea. 2.3

  • Eat the rights foods. Fruit & vegetables are rich in fibre which builds good bacteria and gut
    health. 2
