How to Restore Your Body’s Digestive Health

(ARA) – If you’re one of the more than 100 million Americans who suffer from symptoms such as heartburn, nausea, flatulence or burping and irregular bowel movements, maybe it’s time to take a natural approach to digestive health.

In addition to causing discomfort that can range from annoying to debilitating, digestive disorders keep your system from absorbing and assimilating nutrients, which means you’re not getting adequate protein, fats, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants which your body needs to sustain optimal health.

Digestonal is a natural digestive aid that relies on time-tested traditional remedies like artichoke leaf extract, mastic gum, DigeZyme and Lactospore to boost the body’s ability to absorb and assimilate nutrients without harmful side effects.

Artichoke leaf extract helps promote bile flow while mastic gum, a natural substance from the sap of a variety of pistachio trees, protects the digestive system against duodenal and peptic ulcers, eradicating gastrointestinal bacteria and soothing dyspeptic complaints. Digestonal also contains DigeZyme, a multi-enzyme complex that promotes digestion and Lactospore, which promotes gastrointestinal health by growing “good” bacteria.  

That’s very different from how prescription and over-the-counter medications work. While these products can provide quick, temporary relief from dyspepsia, they do so by blocking or neutralizing gastric acid. However, stomach acids and bile flow help maintain normal health in the gastrointestinal tract, and blocking them may make the condition worse by disturbing the normal feedback mechanism controlling stomach health.

Stomach acid is essential for proper functioning of the digestive system. It activates digestive enzymes that break down food into small particles for absorption. Low acidity may result in only partial digestion of foods. A combination of low acidity and undigested food makes it easier for bacteria and parasites to colonize the stomach or small intestine, and interfere with digestion and absorption.

But an estimated 30 percent of North Americans have low stomach acid, which helps explain the large numbers of people suffering from dyspepsia. Yet most medications contain antacids or acid blockers – the opposite of what common sense would tell you your body needs.
