Good digestion is critical to your health

Good digestion is critical to your health

The digestive system is so important to your body’s function that it affects nearly every aspect of your mental and physical health. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter present in the human body and is largely credited for controlling a person’s mood. Most people are aware that serotonin is created in the brain, but did you know that up to 90% of the total serotonin in your body is actually produced by the gut? An unhealthy intestinal tract can lead to a lack of serotonin, which can cause anxiety and depression. Thinking, memory and other cognitive abilities are also linked to digestive function. A healthy gut is necessary for a healthy brain, but it also affects the body in many ways.

The majority of your immune system is located in the gut, which means maintaining a healthy digestive track can impact your ability to fight off viruses and infections. As food passes through your intestines, key nutrients required to produce energy are extracted and sent through the bloodstream. Maintaining good digestion leads to better stamina as well as the ability to bring about weight loss in the long run.

Are you experiencing problems?

What are some of the signs that your digestive system may not be as healthy as you’d like? Do you find yourself experiencing bloating or popping antacids after meals? The cause of your indigestion could be your body reacting badly to the foods you’re eating. You need a healthy balance of good bacteria in your digestive tract to be able to break down and process food. When the ratio of good bacteria vs. bad gets out of balance, you may start having trouble with constipation or acid reflux, both symptoms of poor digestive processing.
