The GI System: The Gateway to Your Health
You might think the heart and brain are the most important organs in the human body. However, the GI (gastrointestinal) tract is vital to health and longevity. Many of us have heard the adage, “You are what you eat.” It’s time to amend that saying to, “You are what you digest and absorb.” Several important functions of the GI tract include breaking down and absorbing the foods and liquids you consume, maintaining optimal immune function and supporting nervous system health, among other wellness benefits.
A poorly functioning GI tract can be the starting point for many chronic health problems that negatively impact quality of life. Because the body is so resilient, it’s common to ignore symptoms of poor digestion and absorption. The GI tract is an intricate system that can be disrupted by diet, illness or emotional stress.
However, you can improve the function of your GI system and return it to balance through dietary improvements such as consuming adequate amounts of fiber, eliminating junk foods or refined sugars, and taking beneficial nutrient supplements.
