Are you aware that poor digestion can cause weight gain? Well, it can. In fact if your digestion system is not performing as it should your body will not absorb nutrients from the food you eat. Nor will your body be able to eliminate waste and toxins correctly. If you find yourself feeling fatigue, gaining weight, with anemia, brain fog, or any other health issues it may be that your digestion system is out of whack.
When the digestive system is working correctly the food you eat is broken down into small nutrients enabling them to be absorbed through the gut lining into the bloodstream. Yes, a healthy digestion system is a must if you are to have a healthy body.
The body is an amazing thing when everything is working correctly. The digestion process starts when you think about and smell the food you are about to eat. As you smell and think about food the body starts to produce enzymes and stomach acids that start the digestive process. When there are disorders in acid and enzyme production you may develop other common digestive disorders such as stomach ulcers, GI infections, heartburn, vitamin deficiencies, constipation, etc.
These are just some of the problems you may face if you suffer from poor digestion. It is important to find out the cause of poor digestion so it can be corrected.
If your gut is healthy it contains many, many, “good bacteria”. (flora) These bacteria are an important part of the digestive process. When you have to take antibiotics you run the risk of a large percentage of the “good bacteria” being killed. The “good bacteria” will grow back but there is also the risk of bad bacteria and yeast grow. So it behoves us to do all we can to remain healthy.
Poor digestion is one of the common causes of weight gain. After all if your food is not being absorbed correctly and waste and toxins are not being eliminated your metabolism suffers. The calories a person consumes are meant to build body tissues such as muscle, bones, etc. or to be used for energy. In order for this to happen the digestive system must be doing it’s job. Being unable to eliminate the waste correctly because of poor digestion causes so many problems. When toxins build up the body retains both fat and excess water. This causes many problems such as sluggishness, puffiness and difficulty losing weight.
