Digestion matters

A healthy digestive system is one of the most important factors in maintaining overall wellbeing.

I’m sure we’ve all heard (many times) the phrase:

You are what you eat

Well, it’s probably more accurate to say:

You are what you absorb

Digestion is a complex process, involving a series of important steps as our meals travel from one end to the other. These include:

Breaking down our food into smaller nutrient compounds…
Which allows us to absorb and utilise what we’ve been eating…
Which actually turns our meals into medicine.

Amazing! Our bodies are amazing! As is this infographic.

You’re welcome.
