Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, you’ve likely heard about the importance of digestive health. What you may not know is that having a healthy digestive system impacts so much of your day-to-day life, including your ability to lose weight, experience stable mental health, or support a healthy immune system. But what does it take to have a healthy digestive system? In our modern diet, we don’t consume enough of the right nutrients, and our diets are so heavy in preservatives and toxins that it’s easy to throw your digestive system off course. But you can give your digestive system a fighting chance by adding Xyngular’s digestive products to your wellness routine. Xyngular has formulated a line of powerhouse products that support your digestive system.* We’re going to break down the basics of digestion and show you how easy it is to take your health into your own hands.
At its most basic definition, digestion is the bodily process that takes food and liquid, breaks it down, extracts nutrients, and removes waste. While that seems like a pretty straightforward process, there are dozens of problems your body can run into during the digestion process that prevents your body from efficiently absorbing nutrients or removing waste.
The digestive process begins the moment you put food in your mouth. Your mouth secretes saliva, which, along with chewing, starts the digestion process. When you swallow, the food goes to your stomach where it is further broken down by stomach acid and your stomach muscles. Then the food moves to the small intestine, where it is broken down by acid from the pancreas and liver and bacteria (don’t worry, they’re the good kind!)
When the food is broken down into the basic components of fat, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, and minerals, they are small enough to move from inside the small intestine to the bloodstream, where the blood takes those nutrients to the rest of the body. Whatever isn’t broken down is taken to the large intestine, where it is slowly turned into stool and then removed from the body.
TRENDING: How To Improve Digestion For Weight Loss
Now that we have the basic process out of the way, we have to talk about the star of the whole process: bacteria! That’s right--without these tiny bacteria living in your intestines, you wouldn’t be able to absorb the nutrients your body needs to function properly. You need a huge variety and quantity of gut bacteria for your body to effectively absorb nutrients. In fact, there are around 100 trillion members of your gut microbiome community.
It’s important to keep the healthy bacteria balanced so that you can absorb nutrients and limit unhealthy gut bacteria from overgrowing and causing digestive problems. When your digestive system is working well you will feel healthier because your body is getting all the nutrients it needs and removing all the excess it doesn't need. If your digestive system doesn't have the right amount and balance of gut bacteria, you might have problems with eliminating waste, feeling anxious, struggling to lose weight, or supporting healthy immune function.
What About Digestive Enzymes?
Digestive enzymes are non-living proteins that play an important role in breaking down the food in your intestines. Your body naturally creates digestive enzymes, but as you age your body doesn’t make as many, which can lead to difficulty with your digestive system. Digestive enzymes work with the healthy bacteria in your body to improve the absorption of nutrients. If you don’t have enough, your body simply can’t absorb all the nutrients it needs. Some common digestive enzymes are Amylase, Protease, and Lipase, which all help with digesting specific macronutrients. There are many types of enzymes, and your body needs a healthy balance of all of them to ensure you are getting the full nutritional benefit of the food you are eating.
Digestion And Weight Loss
Digestive issues may be the culprit when it comes to your struggle to lose weight. Your body needs to be able to absorb the full nutritional benefit of the healthy food you are eating, and without a healthy gut, you simply can’t absorb what you need. This might make you feel like you are still hungry, making it difficult for your body to feel healthy. Additionally, digestion helps remove waste and toxins from your body, so an unwell digestive system can leave you feeling sluggish and tired. Not only is it unpleasant to feel run-down but that lack of energy makes it difficult to exercise, making it even more challenging to lose weight. Obviously, eating whole foods free of preservatives, exercising, getting enough sleep, and staying hydrated all help with weight loss, but if your body can’t absorb the healthy nutrients you are eating or can’t get the energy you need to exercise, you are fighting an uphill weight loss battle. Adding a few supplements to your weight loss routine can give your body the boost it needs to lose weight.

The Link Between Collagen and Digestion
Collagen is the most abundant form of protein found in our bodies. It is found in your hair, skin, nails, connective tissues, muscles, ligaments, cartilage, and internal organs. It is naturally produced by your body, but as you age your body produces less and less collagen, leading to hair thinning, sagging skin, ligament issues, and more. Collagen plays an important role in digestion as it contains amino acids your body needs to effectively break down nutrients and eliminate waste. Most collagen products have a few amino acids including glycine, proline, and glutamine, which is a great start for a collagen product. But Xyngular Complete Collagen™ has all those amino acids, as well as specific ingredients to help with digestion like hyaluronic acid and fulvic minerals. This specialized collagen helps with skin health, joint health, weight loss, and digestive health. Without the specialized amino acids and ingredients in Complete Collagen, your body might feel sluggish and worn out, but many customers have benefited from consistent use of Complete Collagen.*
Probiotics: One of Digestion’s Best Friends
If your gut microbiome is a small army of healthy bacteria that fight to keep the bad bacteria at bay and break down food so your body can absorb nutrients, then probiotics are the reinforcements your gut needs to fight another day. Probiotics are living bacteria taken as a supplement to diversify and increase your existing gut microbiome. Having a substantial and diverse group of bacteria in your gut helps your body absorb every nutrient you eat.
Each type of bacteria helps break down different types of nutrients, and if you are missing one type, your body might be missing out on the benefits of that food. You’ll know if you need a probiotic if you struggle to lose weight even with a healthy diet and exercise, or if you struggle with digestive issues that make it uncomfortable to get through your day. You might need a probiotic if it seems like you catch every cold and struggle to recover from illness. If you struggle with mood swings or you struggle to get yourself out of a low-mood day, you might need to add probiotics to your health routine.
However, not all probiotics are created equal—in fact, many probiotics on the market today don’t have a diverse list of ingredients or they have so few bacteria that they aren’t helpful to your body. That’s why you need to look at the ingredients of your probiotic and know what you are looking for, like diverse types of bacteria and at least 10 to 20 billion CFUs. Our team at Xyngular has made it easy to get all the benefits of a probiotic with Complete Probiotic, our supplement perfect for your digestive health. This powerhouse product has 11 strains specialized for gut health, mood support, and metabolic support, as well as 20 billion active bacteria. Complete Probiotic puts the PRO in Probiotic, giving your body the support it needs to help you lose weight, manage your mood, and improve your digestion.*
