Digestion

The digestive tract runs from the mouth to the anus and is among other things responsible for the consumption, digestion and the intake of food but also for the secretion of waste. This system also produces hormones and contains 70% the immune system. Via the vagus nerve, it also has a direct connection to the brain. The intestines are also called the "second brain" where most of the neurotransmitters are produced. In the stomach an optimal production of stomach acid is essential for a barrier against pathogens but also for food digestion and absorption of nutrients such as vitamins.

Building materials and energy

The digestive system is responsible for breaking down food into nutrients that the body can absorb and use. The nutrients are made of building materials that are needed to grow or replace damaged cells in the body or they are converted into energy. Digestion starts as soon as something is drunk or eaten. Several organs are involved in this complicated process.

 

Promotion of the digestion

Nutrients provide our body with building materials and energy. There are various ways in which the organs involved in these processes can be naturally supported. Among other things, enough physical activity, a varied diet and drinking plenty of fluid contribute to optimal digestion and bowel movements.
