3 Reasons Why You’re Not Benefiting From the Food You Eat

Your small intestine absorbs nutrients from the food you eat. But there are situations where the small intestine cannot take nutrients to your bloodstream. This condition is called malabsorption and some of the reasons behind it are:

  1. Weak gut or intestinal lining: Normally, the gut lining is semi-permeable — it absorbs water and nutrients from food into your bloodstream. But bad gut lining lets in more than water and nutrients — they let in the wrong kind of bacteria. This affects your digestion and protection against infections.
