Is Poor Digestion Making You Fat?

New research is showing that a slow or sluggish digestive system can cause you to have problems losing weight, feel easily tired, have feelings of depression, and cause indigestion and irregular bowel movements.

(PRWeb) January 15, 2007 -- The recently released "Zymelite" enzyme diet claims that your digestive system is key to healthy weight loss. Despite the unending list of diets and diet products out right now, it seems like current research is lending validity to the enzyme push. But can people really lose weight with an enzyme pill instead of following the standard diets?

With a sea of options for dieters, it seems like every website and magazine has a different take on the safest way to lose excess pounds. With glycemic index diets, high protein diets, all veggies diets, pills, teas and no real authority that can definitely answer the question "which one works?" What's even harder to gauge is whether or not they are realistic enough that you can stick to it for the long term.

In a tragic event of unfortunate misdiagnosis, The Daily Mail is reporting that teen Stacey Stephenson died of stomach cancer after repeatedly being diagnosed with acid indigestion. At the beginning of summer, Stephenson began having digestive problems related to eating. When she visited the doctor, she was told she suffered from acid indigestion and given a prescription to combat acid indigestion.

Shortly after, she went with friends to Greece on holiday. During holiday in Greece, the stomach pain became severe and she sought medical attention.

Dealing with gastric ulcers

It is widely believed that eating chilli causes gastric ulcers in some people and they are adviced to avoid the spice and eat bland food. But an epidemiological survey conducted in Singapore in 1994 shows that the incidence of gastric ulcers is more common among the Chinese than among Indians who eat far more chillis.

In 1984, ulcer patients in a Delhi hospital were given 1gm chilli powder/meal in the three meals consumed per day along with a healing agent, showed no adverse effect of chilli on healing as observed by endoscopic examination.

Peptic (gastric and duodenal) ulcers are the most common afflicting humans all over the world and considered to be caused when there is an imbalance between the rate of gastric secretion and level of protection. Smoking causes ulcers because it stimulates nerves involved in gastric secretions.
