Our digestive systems are extremely long, both in process and physical length. The start of digestion begins even before a morsel of food hits our mouths through the anticipatory response of our mouth salivating and our pancreas preparing enzymes. Along the long path through your small intestine (which is about four times your height) your system is granted the opportunity to either absorb or reject what is coming through. What we eat does not directly translate into what is absorbed.
Poor dietary and eating habits are a common reason for malabsorption. Consuming food rapidly and overeating are the simplest ways we can upset our digestive systems. Poor food combinations and choices also have a big impact on our digestion. Junk food and the eating of GMO’s can cause serious malabsorption issues since our bodies are unable to recognize the modified, highly processed foods. This leads to the digestive system breaking down, which can cause the development of food allergies, gas, bloating, and indigestion.
By eating high-fiber nutrient dense foods, avoiding high sugar and processed foods, and taking the time to actually enjoy what we are eating and the company we are with, are simple ways to create a healthy balance.
A balanced digestive system also contains prebiotics, probiotics, and enzymes. It is often necessary due to the depletion of our nutrient rich foods to supplement our bodies with these little mighty workers. A great product that can help rebuild our digestive systems is DGX by Theramedix. DGX is a biodiastase blend that is clinically proven to enhance digestion and absorption by optimizing enzyme potential. We offer DGX at our office location along with other tools to help you determine your optimum digestive health!
