Remedies for Indigestion

The process of digestion

Having a clear understanding of the digestive processes that occur in the body is vital to the understanding of disorders of digestion. The primary complaint is slow digestion or dyspepsia.

The process of digestion, about three times a day, we allow the absorption and assimilation of food in the body. Digestion begins in the moment that food enters the mouth. It is mixed with saliva and becomes more permeable to gastric juices, which flow from the openings of the small glands of the stomach. The gastric juice with the enzyme pepsin breaks proteins into smaller molecules. By mixing food with gastric juice and hydrochloric acid, and when it becomes soluble passes through the pylorus, a hole in the bottom of the stomach, the intestines.

After passing into the intestine, foods are exposed to the action of bile, pancreatic juices, intestinal juices and bacteria. These juices contain many elements that break down food into end products. The only substance that is absorbed in the stomach is alcohol, any other substance should be the transformation that takes place in the intestines. The nutrients are absorbed almost exclusively in the small intestine. The result of digestion by the intestine passes through the contractions of muscle layer. The indigestible residue, along with various substances, which are waste matter is excreted by the liver and the bowel wall and is expelled from the body in feces.

Assimilation is a process much slower. The blood circulates through every organ and every one making it necessary for their own growth and repair. The extracted bone cells calcium salts, sugar and muscle proteins and so on. The muscles assimilate the bulk of nutrients.
