Gastrointestinal Health

The intestine and stomach are part of the digestive system. They ensure food intake, its mechanical and chemical processing, nutrient absorption, elimination of undigested and indigestible residues. Its goal is to obtain nutrients from food = DIGESTION. How your body processes the food you eat therefore depends on the condition (capacity) of your digestive system. It is absolutely a priority for human health to keep the organs of the digestive system in shape, and therefore in this category you will find food supplements for the proper functioning of the digestive system.

The intestines contain 300 to 500 different types of bacteria. While some microorganisms are harmful to our health, many of them are beneficial and even necessary for the body. The gut has more functions than just digesting. The intestines are the main organ of the immune system and prevent toxins from seeping into the bloodstream. The function of the microbiome extends beyond the gut not only by the systematic production of immune cells and antibodies (immunoglobulins), but also by the production of hormones and neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin). Vitamins and minerals are also absorbed in the intestines.
