Let’s face it. While eating healthy is important, utilizing and absorbing the nutrients is the other half of the story. What good are healthy foods when the body doesn’t use the nutrients from them?
For example, when a person has constipation and/or diarrhea on a regular basis they likely have nutrient
deficiency, which harms building muscle and exercise recovery.
Processing foods in the gut correctly with enough stomach acids, enzymes, and the right bacteria directly affects the metabolism and fat burning. It is critical to look beyond healthy eating to utilizing and absorbing healthy foods.
If gut health is poor, then a person is only getting a fraction of the results from their efforts. Gut health
should be part of all fitness and health programs.
