Digestion and the Digestive System

Comprised of the oral cavity, throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestines and large intestines, the digestive works together to convert food into energy as well as the fundamental nutrients needed to feed and fuel the body. With so many organs working together and often processing less than ideal food, the digestive system is susceptible to a number of digestive issues and disorders.

Ranging from mild to severe, digestive issues are many. Common digestive issues include bloating, diarrhea, gas, abdominal or stomach pain, and cramps. Several digestive conditions are common maladies as well. These conditions include heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn’s disease. Additional symptoms associated with digestive issues include slow digestion, incomplete release of nutrients into the body, lack of energy and excessive gas.
