Good digestion depends on several factors including chewing and saliva production, adequate levels of hydrochloric (HCL) acid in the stomach, pancreatic enzyme production and good functioning of the liver, gall bladder and intestines.

Poor digestion can occur as a result of many problems, but poor eating habits can contribute greatly to these problems. These include:

Not chewing adequately. Chewing thoroughly is important to enhance digestion.
Overeating. Overtaxing the digestive tract reduces its capacity to digest properly.
Excessive fluid consumption with meals. This dilutes the concentration of HCL.
Poor food combining. Those with a weakened ability to digest food are sometimes sensitive to maldigestion when combining different types of foods.Food combining rules are discussed here.
