What Is Digestion?

Digestion is simply the process of breaking down of large food into small particles that can be absorbed into the bloodstream. There are two parts to digestion: mechanical and chemical. Several organs are involved in this process.

Digestive System Organs

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth. Your mouth begins digestion by the mechanical method of chewing. Saliva also contains the enzyme amylase which starts the chemical digestion. Next comes the oesophagus, through which your chewed food travels down to the stomach.

In the stomach, gastric juices are released. These juices contain stomach acid and enzymes, which continue to break down food. The resulting liquid is moved into the small intestine, where many nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream. At the same time, bile, which was made in the liver and stored in the gallbladder, and enzymes that were made in the pancreas, are released into the small intestine to further break down particles that are still too big to be absorbed.

Lastly, what's left moves into the large intestine. Here more absorption of nutrients and water occurs. The remaining waste is your poo, which is excreted by the rectum.

Signs Of An Unhealthy Gut

Gut health is affected by and can affect many other aspects of your health. Inside your gut is a microbiome, most of the bacteria in your body are found in your small intestine. These bacteria play an important role in your gut health. If your gut isn't healthy, you can have symptoms such as:

  • Upset stomach;
  • Skin irritation;
  • Food intolerances;
  • Fatigue.

How To Improve Gut Health Naturally

You can keep your gut healthy naturally by having a varied diet, eating plenty of fruits, vegetables and legumes, and reducing your intake of artificial sweeteners. Too much stress can even have negative impacts on your good health.
