• The human body requires macro nutrients Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats to produce energy and maintain overall well-being.
  • Digestion is the process of breaking down food into these vital nutrients, which are then easily absorbed into the systemic circulation.
  • Digestive Enzymes are present in the mouth, stomach and small intestines. They help in the metabolism of food.
  • Nutrients are absorbed into the body from the small intestine and the remaining waste matter is eliminated in the form of faeces.

Indigestion is a temporary condition in which food is not completely digested by the body.

Symptoms of Indigestion, experienced after consuming a meal are:

  • Bloating and Heaviness
  • Gas and Belching
