Gut and Digestion
An efficiently functioning digestive system is essential in order for the nutrients in food to be efficiently digested and absorbed by the body. Poor digestion of food or a disruption of the balance of natural gut flora can lead to digestive disorders. Travel, medications or poor diets additionally contribute to a large number of digestive and gut complaints such as heartburn, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea and bloating. The body produces specific enzymes to digest fats, proteins, carbohydrates and dairy foods; supplementing with these enzymes where digestion is compromised can dramatically improve wellbeing. A favourable balance of naturally occurring beneficial probiotic bacteria can also be used to promote general gut and bowel health or address specific gut or digestive issues.
