Nutrition for digestive health

The digestive system plays a key role in overall health, and when it is not functioning optimally food can not be broken down properly and nutrients may not be absorbed or utilised as they should be. Poor digestion may result in unwanted symptoms such as irregular bowel movements, bloating, indigestion, flatulence and belching. It may also contribute to nutrient deficiencies, low energy, poor skin, and food sensitivities.

We all have levels of good bacteria in our gut which aid the digestion of food and inhibit the development of bad bacteria. When these levels become out of balance it can effect digestion. Other factors such as stomach acid and the presence digestive enzymes also are also important for digestive health.

A personalised nutritional plan can help to improve digestive function, optimising health & wellbeing.
