Why does digestion change with age?
As you get older, have you noticed certain foods tend to trigger off issues such as bloating, gas and stomach ache? We often think twice before eating these foods, however we used to enjoy them without any complaints? Well you’re not alone.
From the age of 27, our digestion becomes less efficient and our body’s production of enzymes continues to decrease the older we become. If we you can’t digest your food effectively, then your can’t absorb any of the nutrients into your body. This is known as nutrient malabsorption and is often the underlying cause of many health problems.
If the body fails to produce enough digestive enzymes, certain foods are not digested properly. This leads to digestive stress that is often the beginning of a food intolerances and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Foods that are left undigested start to fester in the gut and can cause many health problems such as IBS, foul smelling gas, constipation, yeast overgrowth, candida, and stubborn bloating.
Health begins with the gut
You may have heard the phrase many times; good health begins with the gut, well it’s true. Good digestion and gut health go a long way to making us feel energised. The gut is more than just consuming food, digesting and excreting it. The digestive tract houses approximately 70% of our immunity and that’s why its coined as the second brain. Good gut bacteria influences our body weight and is linked to:
- Energy levels
- Hormonal balance
- Feelings of wellbeing
- Focus and concentration
- Feeling happy
- Sleeping better
- Skin health
- Joint health
- Cravings and appetite
- Weight management
- And more
There are environmental factors that influence how we feel that are attributed to poor gut health. Our lives and jobs are more stressful than ever before and the following all influence poor gut health:
- Poor diet
- Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
- Artificial sweeteners
- Getting older
- Environmental toxins
- And more

Reasons to use a digestive enzyme
Poor food combining and overeating can overwhelm the digestive system. When eating a meal like meat and starchy potatoes it can give the digestive system mixed signals about which digestive juices and enzymes to release. In the stomach, this can mean that enzymes never get activated. A high pH (or gastric juices that are alkaline) will not trigger pepsin, an enzyme that is essential for the complete digestion of food proteins.
That’s where our digestive enzyme blend comes into play to aid digestion and break down the foods in their appropriate timeframe. It increases digestive movement in the stomach and small intestine, and stimulates several valuable digestive enzymes in the pancreas.
How you will feel when taking Fruitful Digest regularly
After a week you will start to feel the benefits of taking Fruitful Digest. As your digestion strengthens and gas and bloating is removed from within your body, you should feel more energised as your gut starts to work better.
We recommend taking Fruitful Digest once a day, however if you are suffering from gas, bloating or upset stomach more than usual, take it up to 3 times a day until these symptoms pass. Once your digestion has strengthened, ease off to once a day. We do recommend taking Fruitful Digest ongoing to maintain your new found wellness.
