A healthy digestive system is key to optimal functioning in the body. The ability of the body to carry out its activities depends initially on every cell having access to important nutrients. These vital nutrients, however, can be depleted by recurrent digestive problems and this will lead to the development of other health concerns.

A few of the factors that can affect the function of the digestive system include:

  1. Mental/emotional stress – Stress and anxiety can influence your nervous system to “shut down” your digestive system
  2. Food sensitivities – Foods that you are eating regularly could be irritating the inner lining of your digestive tract
  3. Dysbiosis  – Overuse of antibiotics and poor diet can disrupt the levels of healthy bacteria in your digestive tract
  4. Medication side-effects – Use of certain drugs such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) commonly have side-effects in the digestive tract
