Your body’s digestive system does not only impact gut health but also many different aspects of the human body. Digestion is the process of breaking down food into small molecules that can be absorbed into your intestines. The bacteria and undigested food are then removed from the body through bowel movements. However, over time your intestines can build up with waste and pollutants that can hinder the process of digestion which can limit the amount of nutrients your body needs. Keep reading to learn more about all the different health benefits of a healthy digestive system.
When the intestines are clogged up, the body has to work harder which takes away energy that could be used for other things. When the body has a clean digestive system, the process of digestion will happen more streamlined allowing you to feel more energized.
Regular Bowel Movements
When your digestive system is working properly, you will also experience more regular and consistent bowel movements. The normal and healthy amount of bowel movements should be around 1 to 3 a day. If you are not experiencing normal daily bowel movements, that is a big indication that something is wrong with your digestive system.
One thing many people don’t know is that your digestive health has a direct impact on your mental health. When your digestive tracks are blocked by pollutants, your body is not getting the right amount of healthy nutrients but rather absorbing toxins and unhealthy bacteria. This can dramatically affect your overall mental clarity, mood and so much more.
Studies show that around 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive system. A healthy diet and clean colon will allow for your body to have an enhanced immune system allowing you to fight off bad bacteria and viruses.
