Generic Gastrointestinal Tract medications
Gastrointestinal tract and pancreas are the part of the digestive system, whose main function is mechanical and chemical processing of food, as well as the selection and the absorption of the necessary materials. During the digestion, substances are processed into soluble compounds of water: proteins are split into amino acids, carbohydrates - into monosaccharides, lipids - into glycerol and fatty acids. These substances are absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and enter the blood and lymph, and from there go to the cells and tissues.
Therefore, the concept of "food" should be understood as the process of metabolism. In the case of disorders of the digestive process, correct processing of the components of food needed for daily cells’ existence, is disturbed. Formed in the intestine harmful breakdown products of food are absorbed and poison the body. The cells of individual organs are unable to accept defective products, and if this happens, the disrupted metabolism of cells affects the work of many organs and systems, therefore causing the fact that the whole body suffers.
Some studies suggest that at the age of 30 - 40 years the human gut microflora is almost destroyed, and at this age there is always a chance of gastritis, colitis, enterocolitis, that flow into an ulcer, and often - stomach cancer.

Incorrect work of the gastrointestinal tract (stomach, pancreas, intestine) leads to the disturbance of the correct operation of all the digestive organs, which over time, can cause serious diseases of individual organs (gastro intestinal diseases).
