Importance of Digestive Health
09 Dec 2015 1 Minute Read
Digestive discomfort may arise due to a demanding lifestyle, skipping meals, stress, a low fibre and unbalanced eating plan, lack of exercise or poor fluid intake. Some common signs of digestive discomfort include feeling bloated or sluggish, intestinal ‘gurgling’, and feeling weighed down and heavy. So making sure your digestive health is in balance is important to your overall wellbeing.
Your digestive tract is home to the enteric nervous system, which is considered by some to be our ‘second brain’. As a result, poor digestive health may not only have physical symptoms, but may also impact your mood and ability to deal with stress.
