Optimal Health can only be achieved when you have a healthy digestive system. Healthy digestion of the food you eat, refers to the body’s ability to break down and absorb nutrients from the foods you eat in simple forms so the nutrients can released for absorption by the cells of the body. This entire process is made possible by the digestive system. The importance of the digestive system involves the conversion of nutrients into a form that can be used by the body as well as nutrition absorption. Proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are large forms of nutrients that are fragmented into amino acids, sugars, and fatty acids, respectively. All these nutrients are essential for life and can only be found in natural foods such as lean meat, chicken, fish, vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds. Damage occurs to this unique system when there is a diet of highly processed, packaged and man made foods.
