The digestive system is presented by many as being outside the body, or as an open-ended muscular tube that is surrounded by the body. It is over 30 feet long and provides for the ingestion of nutrients and the expellation of unusable and waste materials. Nutrients are broken down to a size small enough to pass through the tube’s wall into the blood stream, and subsequently absorbed at the cellular level.
The process involves physical, chemical, and enzymatic action as the nutrients traverse along the digestive tract via peristalic action. Specialized chemicals are introduced along the way through connecting tubes and surfaces.
Digestive disorders are commonplace today with the American diet and "on the run" meals. Many
disorders stem from poor digestion, which can lead to serious illnesses. Below are our gastrointestinal
remedies which can alleviate discomforts, improve nutrient absorption, and reduce the chance of disease.
