Remember when you were a kid and mom would badger you on the importance of chewing your food? Whether you had to recite the alphabet with each bite or
simply count every bite, mom was actually teaching you a very important lesson in digestive health. Even though mom was probably just making sure a big chunk of food didn’t get stuck in your throat, she was teaching you a lot more than how to survive each meal.
Often we pay a lot of lip service to the word ‘digestion’ but the truth is that ineffective digestion can cause a host of digestive problems including bowel gas. But beyond the discomfort and embarrassment of untimely gas, proper digestion will ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs to run like the well-oiled machine it is.
