The digestive system is a group of organs that work together to transform the food we eat into the energy and nutrients our body needs for growth and repair. It also includes vital organs like Liver & Pancreas- Liver being a potent chemical factory which synthesizes lots of essential substances for continuation of healthy life and detoxifies most of the waste generated by working of body’s various systems, Pancreas is an important organ related to energy regulation and storage. Every organ and part in our body, ranging from hormones to heart, needs the nutrients from the digestive process to work properly and perfectly. Other than this, the organs of digestive tract have multiple functions like secretion of hormones and other vital substances to regulate metabolism and immunity. Healthy digestion is the prerequisite and most important fundamental aspects of overall health and well-being of a person.

Digestive diseases are amongst the most prevalent health conditions across the globe. The outbreak of COVID–19 is potently threatening the global public health as this pandemic has a deep negative effect on overall physical, mental, and especially digestive health which further weakens our immunity system as well.  Generally, the corona virus patients are mostly afflicted with the symptoms of fever, cough, and respiratory illness, however, this virus also affect the digestive system very badly causing diarrhoea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, etc. In some cases, digestive symptoms appear prior to respiratory symptoms and have been linked to worst outcomes.

The COVID–19 pandemic has brought the whole idea of health especially digestive health and immunity at the centre-stage. The healthy digestive system strongly prevents from all viruses and infections especially COVID–19, the most potent and dangerous virus. The digestive symptoms must be treated with caution in the early stage to reduce the higher risk of the complications and mortality.
