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.
