How is food broken down before it even touches your stomach acid? Today I am going to be talking about this process—something I like to call predigestion—and explaining the importance of chewing your food and more.

Listen in as I share the two main components to what digestion really is, as well as how to begin digestion properly. Breaking down food and turning it into your cells, tissues, and organs is an incredibly exhausting process, so I discuss how you can make it much easier for your body.
