The digestive system is where our health starts. As the saying goes, we are what we eat, however we are also what we absorb. The digestive system is responsible for digesting our food and absorbing the nutrients from it. Good digestion is essential for good health and energy levels. If the digestive system is not working efficiently, symptoms such as bloating, flatulence, indigestion, belching, constipation, or diarrhoea can result.
