Digestion is one of the most important processes in the body, as its function is to keep the body’s supply of water, electrolytes and nutrients in a continuous flow. It is essential to have a healthy digestive system as it serves all other body systems and also, to have a good bioavailability of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The compounds that aid digestion act on the health of the gastrointestinal tract, including mouth, throat, stomach, intestine, digestive and absorptive capacity and the microbiome.
