In today’s episode, I am going to talk about how your digestive tract resembles a garden hose, a canal that starts with your mouth, includes your intestines, and ends with your anus. This is important to understand because putting food in your mouth does not necessarily mean it gets into your cells. You have to digest it properly before your body can use it, and I’m going to share how to make sure that happens.

Listen in as I explain how your digestive tract works, what most people get wrong about gut health, and what to focus on instead. (Hint: It’s not vitamins and minerals—and it’s not even probiotics.) You’ll learn why the saying “you are what you eat” is a lie and the real key to gut health.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • The ultimate goal of digestion and why it matters. 
  • What a leaky gut is and how to prevent it. 
  • Why most people are focused on the wrong things when it comes to nutrition.  
  • What you should focus on instead of micronutrients. 
  • The queen of nutrients.
  • Why food sensitivity tests are ineffective.
  • How keto affects your energy.
  • The key to gut health.

Today I am going to be talking about a magical digestive window that so many people overlook. That window is called predigestion, and it’s that 45-60 minute time frame where food is sitting in that upper portion of your stomach—before stomach acid has formed. This episode is all about how to make the most of it to keep your body at its healthiest.

Listen in as I explain what’s really going on with your stomach acid, as well as how to help your body digest food easier. You’ll learn the difference between probiotics and enzymes, how they both come into play for healthy digestion, and more.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • What predigestion is.
  • How long it takes stomach acid to form.
  • Where stomach acid comes from.
  • The importance of chewing your food properly.
  • How probiotics and enzymes are different.
  • The three different kinds of enzymes.

Probiotics are very, very important … but when you’re taking probiotics, you are not doing any favors for the predigestive phase.- @thedigestiondoc Click To Tweet Predigestion is that 45-60 minutes where food is sitting in the upper portion of your stomach before stomach acid has formed.- @thedigestiondoc Click To Tweet When you chew your food properly … magic happens.- @thedigestiondoc Click To Tweet
