Why is Digestion Important?
In health, the digestive membrane is both a barrier and a filter. This highly selective filter continuously takes inventory of what is lacking in the body and what is available from the food we are providing. It acts as an uber-smart grocery shopper, picking out the best things to stock up our pantries.
The reality is that most of us don’t eat this way. We don’t take time to eat in a relaxed environment, and select great, nutrient rich foods at every meal. When we let nutrition slide again and again, our digestive membrane loses its ability to properly function. When this membrane is compromised, it loses its ability to filter out toxins, fluid, and even undigested food molecules. We all know the feeling this creates, the discomfort of bloating after a large heavy meal.
