You are what you eat.
We´ve all heard that saying at one time or another, but have you ever stopped and considered what that simple statement means? Whatever you eat affects the health of the entire body, including the digestive tract, which affects virtually all other bodily systems. If you´ve ever experienced digestive problems, you know that as the gut goes, so goes the body's immune system, heart, lungs, blood supply, brain, and nervous system. That´s why it´s important to pay attention to the proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that you eat.
