How Age Impacts the Digestive System

As you grow older, individuals are more likely to suffer from indigestion, constipation and other ailments of the digestive system, mainly due to the fact that age can indeed affect the structures and their function. Although a natural process, several issues and conditions may develop as a result.

Sacramento gastroenterologist Roger Mendis, M.D., of Sutter Medical Foundation quoted this exact theory “Aging doesn’t necessarily mean you will start to have GI problems, but it definitely increases the odds that you might. Everything changes as our body ages, and some of those changes do impact your GI tract.” Because of this, the health of an individual’s digestive system is essential, and learning to identify these specific complications can be the first step for taking action. 

Below are some of the reasons that problems with digestion might begin after the age of 60, even in healthy adults.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

While age can alter several functions of the body, most commonly slowing down the digestive system, not many individuals understand the impact aging can have on their overall health if they do not follow specific guidelines to maintain their function. When it comes to digestive health, it’s essential to be aware of the natural changes which affect the digestive system.
