Saliva and Digestion

It is well established by now, that your health begins in your gut.

You may not give your digestive system much attention on a day to day basis but remember how you feel when you are constipated or have a diarrhea. You feel sluggish, uncomfortable, unmotivated and possibly depressed.

That is because weight management, blood sugar control, mental clarity and mood disorders are all related to your digestive functions.

Often the cause is that we are lacking the essential enzymes to break down our foods into absorbable particles and the nutritional value of the best diet is not being utilized and of any benefit.

Digestion starts in the mouth and enzymes are added through the mixing of your saliva with your food. Chewing your food properly will also send a signal to the stomach to get ready for the appropriate type of foods and the digestive process can be optimized.
