Why Does Digestion Get Harder as We Get Older?

Digest Better, Live Better

Complete and proper digestion ensures the delivery of vital nutrients to our body allowing us to repair, rebuild and live a renewed healthy life.

The intricate processes that have to occur during digestion to ensure proper nutrient breakdown, delivery and absorption to our cells, is quite a complicated process that we don't really think about until we start having problems with it.

The Digestive System is Complex and changes as we age.

For Many individuals Digestive Issues like Heartburn, Gas, Bloating and Sluggishness start to happen as we age, as a few new factors come into play.

Intestinal Plaque Buildup can minimize nutrient absorption by suffocating the Villi (nutrient absorbing finger-like structures on the small intestinal wall) as it accumulates over time. This plaque can inhibit nutrient absorption by up to 50%. Vitamin and Nutrient Deficiency can lead to not only Indigestion but Health Problems as well.

Another Major Factor that causes Digestive Issues as you age is the bodies decrease in production of Natural Digestive Enzymes. Digestive Enzymes are what the body produces naturally to help break down the food we eat into fuel for our bodies. When food is not completely broken down it can lead to many Digestive Issues and the inability to use our food as fuel for energy and repairs.

Balanced Bacteria in the gut is important for digestion

And last but not least we have the absence of Good Bacteria or Probiotics. Many individuals have an overgrowth of Bad Bacteria in the gut, usually stemming from excess sugar intake. When bad bacteria outnumber good bacteria we have an imbalance in Microflora that can also lead to Digestion Issues.

The combination of these three factors can really create discomfort and if not addressed eventual health problems. If you are suffering from Indigestion, Heartburn, Gas, Bloating or Sluggishness more frequently now than in the past, 1 of these 3 Factors could be the culprit.
