You are what you digest!

One of the most common things people coming into our office complain about is digestion. Poor digestion may not sound like that big of a deal, but without proper digestion our bodies do not get proper nutrients. Digestion is when our bodies convert the food we eat into substances that we can absorb at a cellular level. People do not realize that digestion is the starting block for immune function. It actually affects our entire overall health! Digestive enzymes are proteins that break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates and turn them into nutrients for our bodies. Proteins are particularly important that they are digested because undigested protein decomposes in our intestines, never turns into nutrients, and causes gastrointestinal discomfort!

How do you know if you have poor digestion? Do you suffer from heartburn, acid reflux, constipation, or diarrhea? If so, your digestive tract is definitely not up to par! What can you do about it?
