The digestive system is a miracle of muscles, valves, digestive juices and nutrient absorption. The synchronized, wave-like movement of our digestive system's muscles, which push food through the various parts of the system, is essential for a healthy and happy living. Disturbances of gastrointestinal system can cause a variety of symptoms, pain or discomfort and a loss of nutrient absorption.
