Digestion is the process of breaking down the foods we eat into absorbable components. In other words, when we digest our food, we are taking it apart so that our bodies can use all the nutrients that are found within it. Although this is a normal process, there are a lot of different circumstances that can affect our bodies’ ability to do this fully. For some people this will show up as indigestion, bloating, constipation and more. Even the person that proudly says, “I have an iron stomach! I can eat anything!” actually might have a great deal of digestive issues.
