Eating definitely makes life more enjoyable. It is such a pleasurable experience that some people become so obsessed with it that they cannot control their intake any more. Still, eating the right foods will not cause problems as long as proper digestion occurs. What's even better is that there are various organic products that can be used as a digestive aid, and one of them is cinnamon.

About Digestion

What is digestion?

Digestion is a mechanical process in the body of breaking down ingested food that leads to further chemical processes so that food becomes absorbed into the blood stream. This entire process is categorized under catabolism, which is the breakdown of larger molecules of food into smaller ones that easily penetrate the body.

Digestion actually occurs in two ways:

  1. 1
    Internal Digestion
    .
    Christinedelacruz Human.jpg
    This is the type of digestion that occurs in humans and animals. The entire process of digestion normally occurs within a tube, which is more efficient at capturing broken down food and having it react with enzymes in the digestive tract.

  2. 2
    External Digestion
    .
    Christinedelacruz Fungus.jpg
    This is undergone by more primitive forms of life, such as fungi. Enzymes are secreted into the surrounding environment of the organism, and that's where chemical reactions occur. The by-products of this process diffuse back into the organism.

Parts of the Digestive System

  1. 1
    Mouth
    .
    Christinedelacruz Digestive Tract.jpg
    This is where the digestive system begins.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Esophagus
    .
    This is a long tube that connects the mouth and the stomach. Its walls contract and create the peristaltic movement.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  3. 3
    Stomach
    .
    This is a big, sac-like organ that breaks down food with the help of all of its acidic components.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  4. 4
    Small Intestine
    .
    This part of the digestive tract begins with the duodenum and then jejunum and ileum. This is where bile and other enzymes work together to finalize the digestion of food.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  5. 5
    Large Intestine
    .
    This is the last part of the digestive tract, where water and other electrolytes are removed from food and are expelled from the body later on.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Process of Digestion

  1. 1
    Mastication
    .
    This is the first step in digestion. It is in fact just a mechanical form of digestion, but is assisted further through the contact of food with saliva. Saliva is a dense liquid produced by the salivary glands that contains an enzyme called salivary amylase. Salivary amylase is the main chemical that begins the process of digesting starch contained in food.
    Christinedelacruz Mastication.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Bolus formation
    .
    After mastication, food then becomes in a small and slurry form, which is called bolus. Food in this form travels easily through the digestive tract to undergo further processes.
    Christinedelacruz Bolus Formation.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  3. 3
    Movement through peristalsis
    .
    The bolus will then move down through the esophagus and then into the stomach through peristalsis. Peristalsis is the squeezing movement or contraction of the muscles in the esophagus and stomach that helps in pushing the food downward.
    Christinedelacruz Esophagus Peristalsis.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  4. 4
    Protein digestion
    .
    As soon as the food reaches the stomach, the gastric juices in the stomach starts what is called protein digestion. Hydrochloric acid and pepsin are the main components of the gastric juice, and because these are rather acidic and may damage the wall of the stomach, mucus forms part of the liquid in the stomach. Mucus is like a shield that ensures the chemicals contained would only create the desired effects on the food and not damage the inner part of the stomach. Hydrochloric acid and pepsin work together to breakdown the proteins, further assisted by peristaltic movement of the stomach walls. Aside from digesting protein, this entire process also allows for the food to combine with the other digestive enzymes.
    Christinedelacruz Protein.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  5. 5
    Chyme formation
    .
    After about one or two hours, a liquid called chyme is produced. This is the thick liquid that results from the digestion of protein and mixing of food and enzymes through peristalsis.
    Christinedelacruz Chyme.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  6. 6
    Entry into the duodenum
    .
    The pyloric spinchter valve opens and brings chyme into the duodenum, where it combines with more digestive enzymes coming from the pancreas.
    Christinedelacruz Duodenum.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  7. 7
    Full digestion in the small intestine
    .
    Digestion further continues as soon as chyme goes through the small intestine. This is where chyme becomes fully digested and then absorbed into the blood stream. Nutrients are absorbed by the body when the digestion process is already in the small intestine. About 95 percent of nutrient absorption happens here.

  8. 8
    Reabsorption of water and minerals in the colon
    .
    In the colon, both water and minerals are reabsorbed into the blood. In here, the pH level is more on the acidic side (5.6 – 6.9), which is ideal to allow this process to occur. Also, other vitamins produced by certain types of bacteria in the colon are reabsorbed in this process.

    Defecation
    .
    This is the elimination of all waste materials reabsorbed back into the blood in the colon.

Steps Toward Better Digestion

Christinedelacruz Happy Eating.jpg
  1. 1
    Plan every meal in a way that different dishes combine well
    .
    Make sure the components of each dish do not contradict the components of another. For example, too much milk does not go well with acidic food.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Opt for food that is cooked instead of raw and cold food
    .
    The burning process in cooking helps to better breakdown of food.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  3. 3
    Do not be in too much of a rush when eating, and chew food well
    .
    Ideally, food ingested must be chewed at least 30 times before swallowing. This kind of pace allows the salivary enzymes to work well first in digesting food.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  4. 4
    Eat while the mind is at peace
    .
    Avoid thinking of stressful things and situations while eating. This allows the body to produce the necessary enzymes properly and these will assist in better digestion.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  5. 5
    Drink hot beverages while eating, and in between meals
    .
    Hot water is known to be effective for getting rid of toxins in the body as well as building the strength of the digestive system.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  6. 6
    Avoid eating more than you can digest
    .
    The feeling of being full is a good indication that your digestive system has enough to process already. Do not force further food down if you have this feeling already. Too much of anything is harmful.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  7. 7
    Relax after eating
    .
    Do not engage in heavy physical activities directly after eating Let your body stand still for a while to allow the food to glide downwards more smoothly. A little bit of walking, however, can help in better digestion.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  8. 8
    Tempting as it is, don't lay down after meals
    .
    This can cause acid reflux/heartburn.

Issues with Digestion

Common Digestion-Related Problems

Christinedelacruz Digestive Problems.jpg
  1. 1
    Reflux or heartburn
    .
    This is usually characterized by a burning feeling from the middle part of the abdomen to lower chest. In most cases, a sour taste in the mouth is felt at the same time. When this happens during the night, it is not uncommon to find fluid or food particles inside the mouth, which have which have worked their way upwards from the gut.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Peptic ulcers
    .
    This is usually characterized by harsh stomach pains. This is caused by not having enough mucus in the stomach that protects the walls from absorbing too much of the acid inside the stomach.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  3. 3
    Lactose intolerance
    .
    This is caused when the body does not have the enzymes necessary to digest the sugars contained in milk.

  4. 4
    Inflammatory bowel disease
    .
    The two most common types of inflammatory bowel diseases, normally characterized by abdominal pain, diarrhea, bleeding in the rectum, weight loss, and many other annoying symptoms. They are:  
    1. Crohn's disease
    2. Ulcerative colitis
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  5. 5
    Celiac disease
    .
    This is an autoimmune digestive disorder. People affected by this normally don't eat gluten, which is a kind of protein found in wheat, barley, rye and other grains. This attacks the small intestine and causes intensive abdominal pain, vomiting, chronic diarrhea or constipation, smelly gas and very smelly stools.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  6. 6
    Constipation
    .
    This is when bowels are unable to move smoothly and is primarily caused by insufficient fibre in food, as well as insufficient water.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Causes of Poor Digestive Health

  1. 1
    Age-related reduction in the amount of digestive enzymes produced
    .
    When the body has less of these digestive enzymes than it did before, it isn't able to absorb as many essential nutrients as usualal.
    Christinedelacruz Age.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Imbalance between good and bad bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract
    .
    This normally leads to the feeling of bloating and food is not broken down well enough to have the nutrients absorbed properly.
    Christinedelacruz Good and Bad Bacteria.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  3. 3
    Stress
    .
    Too much stress affects the normal functioning of all parts of the body, including the contraction of muscles or so-called peristalsis.
    Christinedelacruz Stress.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  4. 4
    Insufficient water intake
    .
    Water facilitates many of the digestive processes. When water intake is not enough, these processes will be significantly impaired.

How to Use Cinnamon as a Digestive Aid

  1. 1
    Select fresh cinnamon
    .
     
    1. Smell it before you buy cinnamon. The sweet taste is the best indication whether it is still fresh. If the smell is already weak, choose something else because it's not fresh anymore.
    2. Cinnamon sticks usually last longer than cinnamon powder. If you think you'll be storing cinnamon for quite some time, you might as well go for cinnamon sticks instead.

Tips and Warnings

  • If digestive problems persist, consult your doctor to determine if more serious conditions are present.
  • A visit to the nutritionist from time to time would be good for promoting long-term digestive health. Nutritionists will know if certain digestive aids, such as probiotics, are necessary.
  • Judging a dish or a drink as healthy just because it has cinnamon in it is not right. The overall composition of a dish would dictate whether it is healthy or not. For example, you may be using a lot of cinnamon in a dish, but if a lot of pork fat is also included, then it could still lead to digestive problems.
  • To avoid getting tired of the taste of cinnamon, be experimental in mixing it with other types of spices. For example, adding cinnamon to various types of Mexican or Middle Eastern spices will end up tasting rather different as compared to when you add cinnamon to light-tasting spices like salt or vinegar.
