Relax and love your guts!

We all know that to chew our food well will help with the digestion and absorption of nutrients.

Did you know that relaxation is just as important as chewing when you eat?

Our digestive systems rely on our para-sympathetic nervous system (PSNS). The PSNS system is activated when our muscles are relaxed. We cannot stimulate our pancreas, liver or stomach to release sufficient enzymes to breakdown food if we are stressed, eating on the run or watching tv.

Stress responses can create pH variations in our digestive system which can lead to an environment perfect for bad gut bugs, bacteria and virus. Including cultured and fermented foods such as yoghurt, kefier, saukrawt and probiotic supplements can create a beneficial environment for digestion and absorption of nutrients from our food.
