Your digestive system ensures that your body gets enough nutrition to sustain you and provides the energy to fulfil your daily tasks.
When your body needs energy, you feel hungry. Food enters the mouth where it is broken down by chewing and salivary enzymes. The partially broken down food particles are swallowed; peristalsis carries it to the stomach where it comes in contact with Gastric Juices or stomach acid, mostly HCL (Hydrochloric acid). The stomach massages the now broken down food as the acid continues to break it down. Once it is broken down sufficiently it is passed into the duodenum where it is doused with bile which is produced in your liver and stored in your gall bladder. The highly alkaline bile neutralizes the acidic food content and food is digested. It then passes through the small intestine, then the large intestine, into your colon and then exits your body.
With the various types of toxins present in processed foods, problems with digestion are probably one of the most common complaints. They can result in problems such as constipation, diarrhoea, heartburn and bloating. These complaints are easily treated with lifestyle measures and various nutritional supplements. However, symptoms that signal a more serious illness include sudden but persistent worsening of bowel habits, blood in your stools, unexplained weight loss and difficulty in swallowing.
