The main function of our GI tract is to digest and absorb the foods we eat. Digestive enzymes, hydrochloric acid in the stomach and rhythmic contractions all play a part in breaking down large food particles so they can be absorbed into our bodies. Poor digestion and absorption of key nutrients will result in low energy, sluggish metabolism, mental fog, fatigue and an increased susceptibility to all chronic illnesses.
