There are a lot of digestive disorders. They include those that affect gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Among the most wide-spread digestive disorders are indigestion, nausea, and vomiting. Though they are rather complex, they can be successfully treated with fresh juices.

Indigestion. One of the commonest complaints around, indigestion is easy to set right. The causes are usually simple, for example overeating, eating too fast, eating the wrong kinds of food, heavy smoking and anxiety. Certain juices make excellent digestifs. Pineapple juice contains bromelain, an enzyme which can help balance the levels of acidity and alkalinity in the system; and papaya juice contains an enzyme called papain which can break down protein, and therefore help your own stomach enzymes to digest food. Garlic juice can also help soothe the gut.

Nausea and Vomiting. These conditions can have a variety of causes. It could be an infectious bug, such as food poisoning, too much alcohol, too much fatty food, morning sickness during pregnancy, or travel sickness. A mild juice high in vitamin С and the В complex group of vitamins may help speed recovery and quell feelings of nausea. Fennel juice with its aniseed taste can also calm a queasy tummy. Add a teaspoon of ground ginger (preferably fresh) to add to the benefits. Dilute the juice, so that no extra strain is placed on your stomach.
