Digestive System Issues

Are you having some issues on your digestive system? Irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, simple diarrhea, food allergies, and Crohn’s disease are just few of the digestive system issues that you might encounter once your digestive organs fail to function.

Digestive system is composed of mouth, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, rectum and anus. All of them have a role that they perform every second or minute of the day. Mouth, stomach, and small intestine have a lining called the mucosa. Mucosa has tiny glands that produce juices that are responsible in processing and digesting the food we eat. These juices also collect the nutrients that the foods we eat carry when entered in our body.

When one of our digestive organs becomes defective, we start to encounter digestive ailments. Stomach ulcer or peptic ulcer is one of the common ailments that most of us experience. This is due to the excessive release of hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid is present in juices that digest our foods. And when our stomach is not receiving any food when we get hungry, the lining of your organs such as stomach and small intestine still release hydrochloric acid which is bad because it damages and create wounds in the colon part of your body.

Let’s talk about the common cause of digestive problems.
  • Stress is one of the major causes of digestive problems. When we get stressed, toxins are being released and carried to digestive organs. There are two unconscious reactions in our body, it’s either we start to get hungry all the time and we start to intake food in our stomach without limit, or we feel that we do not want to eat anything even if we are hungry. This problem causes peptic or stomach ulcer, abdominal pain, and diarrhea to most likely occur.
  • If you keep on drinking medicine, especially antibiotics, that is not prescribed by your physician, it might also kill the necessary bacteria that our digestive organs need in digesting our foods.
  • Eating too much junk food may also be the contributing factor of digestive problems. Junk foods are mostly high in carbohydrates, high in fats, and high in calories, and aside from that, it is naturally low in micronutrients that our body needs.
  •  Unfavorable eating habit. If you are someone who eats fast and unable to chew your food properly, you have the biggest chance of dealing with digestive pain. It will become difficult for your digestive organs to process and digest the food you eat.

It is important that we take good care of our digestive system. This is because our digestive system is the one responsible in processing the food we eat. It’s like a filter in our body. It sets aside the food waste and it grabs the nutrients that the foods we eat possess to eventually distribute in the remaining system of our body. If we have a defective digestive system, most system of our body will also suffer. This is because all our body parts need energy to function well, and if our food processor, digestive system, is becoming deficient, we’ll going to experience a lack in energy.

Here are some digestive system supplement and medicine that you can try to improve your digestive system's performance.
