Herbs for digestive support

Good health starts with good digestion. Proper digestion is a crucial building block of health. The food we consume is information for our cells that make up every part of our body. It’s cliché, but you are what you eat or rather what you absorb. To have an maintain proper health and functioning our cells need nutrients (information) from the foods we eat. What information are you giving your cells? Are you running like a well-tuned super computer or are you dragging like a 10 year old computer with 67 tabs open and 11 virus warnings?

When most people think of digestion they think of just the gut, but digestion begins with the first bite of food. When we start chewing our food this starts the process of a release of different chemicals, compounds and enzymes that begin to break down food and tell our gut that it’s time to start processing food. We need to support our digestion from ingestion to elimination for true health. Compromised digestion can hinder the building of body tissues, weaken the body’s vital reserves, weaken immunity, affect sleep, stress and more.

  • Gas
  • Bloating / “Food Baby”

  • Reflux / Heartburn
  • Cravings
  • Bad Breath
  • Irregular bowel movements (constipation/diarrhea)
