Many people think of digestion as relating only to what happens in their stomachs. In reality, digestion is a complex process that starts in your mouth and continues on all the way through your intestines. And digestive health affects all the other aspects of your wellbeing – especially your immunity.
Many lifestyle factors negatively affect your digestive health, including:
- Poor diet
- Stress or aging
- Frequent alcohol consumption
- Certain medications, e.g. antibiotics, steroids or the Oral Contraceptive Pill
