I have been suffering from intense indigestion and heart burn for the past 6 months or so, it could be longer. I was also permanently bloated, and put it down to my “meat and potatoes” diet. Last week, I decided to buy a couple of paw paws, just for a fresh fruit change, and I started having half a paw paw before breakfast. The almost instant change has been mind blowing. I am no longer bloated, I have not had heart burn since the day I started, and my stomach has completely settled down, as it was almost permanently upset.
The ONLY change to my diet is the paw paw, so I can only put this miraculous change down to the paw paw.
Suffice to say, it will now be a part of my daily eating regimen!
Other animals, such as rabbits and rodents , practise coprophagia behaviours – eating specialised faeces in order to re-digest food, especially in the case of roughage. Capybara, rabbits, hamsters and other related species do not have a complex digestive system as do, for example, ruminants. Instead they extract more nutrition from grass by giving their food a second pass through the gut . Soft faecal pellets of partially digested food are excreted and generally consumed immediately. They also produce normal droppings, which are not eaten.
