Food is a basic necessity of life, but often times we consume meals without thinking, what actually occurs inside of our intestinal tract? Raw organic foods are readily absorbed into our bodies and used as nutrients to fuel human functions. Our bodies naturally have specific enzymes to break down real foods but lack enzymes to break down processed foods containing synthetic additives.
What happens when we eat junk or processed foods? Our bodies can't recognize the foreign substances or processed ingredients so it has a hard time digesting and absorbing these refined products. This leads to disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, gastritis, stomach ulcers, constipation, and more. Constant ingestion of junk foods cause inflammation in our gastrointestinal systems which overtime causes pain and inflammatory related disorders. This chronic inflammation suppresses our immune system, causes fatigue, and depletes our natural healing potential.
Stefani Bardin’s video, shows what happens in your body when you eat processed foods vs. homemade versions of similar foods, using a tiny “M2A” (that stands for Mouth to Anus, and it’s trademarked, mind you) LED/camera capsule.
