Through years of research, our team has discovered that very few people know that the body has very specific rules on how food is digested, and what nutrients actually get into the body.
Over the last century, we’ve generally made up our own rules and ignored the body’s eating protocol rules. Bowel conditions such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).
It’s not just what you eat, but how you eat it that matters. Food can be split into two overarching categories below:
Food that required digestion: Structures or consistencies that need to go through the digestive process in order to be broken down, before nutrients can be released. This includes meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, and related items. See our article on digestion to understand the process up to when absorption takes place.
Foods that do not require digestion: This includes fruits, fruit juices, breads, cereals and simple sugars. All of these can pass relatively quickly and easily through the stomach and into the bloodstream.
