Digestion is critical, and ought to be the first system in our body we choose to support on our journey to bettering our health as 70-80% of the immune system lives in the digestive tract, commonly referred to as the ‘gut’.
Digestion is important for breaking down food into nutrients, which the body uses for energy, growth, and cell repair. Our food and drink are changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before the blood absorbs them and carries them to cells throughout the body. The body breaks down nutrients into protein, carbohydrates, fats, and vitamins.
Poor nutrient absorption affects every system in the body. You could be eating a very healthy diet, but if your digestive system is not functioning optimally, those healthy nutrients could be lost in the digestion process.
Poor digestion can affect your entire body. Things like bad breath, body odor, acne, skin irritations, migraines, hormone imbalances, bloating, and heartburn can all be signs of improper digestion.
Select essential oils and nutritional supplements can help support healthy digestion and ease discomfort. Join myself and Dr. Megan Bernard later this month as we dive deeper into digestive health. Details below.
