Today most people don’t eat a proper diet because their lifestyle doesn’t allow it. They live with a scarcity of time or lead a sedentary life. This only makes people eat junk food or “fast” food, be more sedentary, starve for hours, etcetera. This all causes trouble in their digestive system, particularly the stomach, which, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine “is an organ between your esophagus and small intestine. It is where digestion of protein begins. The stomach has three tasks. It stores swallowed food. It mixes the food with stomach acids. Then it sends the mixture on to the small intestine.”
