The digestive system works hard every day to break down the foods we eat into nutrients and waste for delivery to the appropriate areas. This important task is a lot easier with the support of a healthy, nutritious diet, regular exercise, and making sure we're not experiencing too much stress. Since those things may be nearly impossible for some of us supplementation may be able to help.
Even if you do exercise often and enjoy a healthy diet, you may still be missing out on specific nutrients that support normal, healthy digestive functions. Many of the foods we eat today have reduced nutrient content, in addition to preservatives, additives, artificial flavors, colors, and a host of other unnatural chemicals that can tax your poor digestive system to its limit and beyond on a daily basis. Digestive system problems such as heartburn, gas, bloating and constipation reflect what’s happening throughout your body.
With everything going on it’s no wonder digestive complaints are so prevalent these days. When gut health is good, you’re less likely to experience damaging inflammation and lapses in immunity. Supplements and a healthy diet are the ideal way to support a healthy digestive system. When the enzymes, gut bacteria, stomach acids, and other factors that support the normal breakdown of foods and absorption of nutrition work as intended, the body will have the nutrients and energy it needs to function on a daily basis.
Ingredients such as Essential Amino Acids, Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's), Vitamins A,B,C,D,E,K, Probiotics, Prebiotics, and Mucosal benefitting ingredients can be helpful for the digestive system.
