WHAT HAPPENS TO NUTRIENTS WHEN THEY LEAVE OUR LIVER?

HEALTH PEARL #813

We are closing in on the final chapter of our topic on DIGESTION.

Interestingly, we all deal with this on a daily basis, if not THREE times a day!

Considering that all the good nutrients we eat make it through our stomach acid, duodenum, small intestines, Portal Vein, and finally our liver; you hopefully realize that what your body has to work with now is whatever is still around at this time. 

So, if your food choices were good, and your digestive organs do their jobs appropriately, you should have an abundance of nutrients that will help to nourish all 43 trillion cells in your body!

These digested, processed, converted, and coenzymated vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fats, and sugars leave our liver in red blood cells, go straight through the heart, then the lungs, to eventually enter our bloodstream. 

These nutrient-rich red blood cells will move through arteries, veins, and capillaries, to finally knock on the cell door to enter and supply the goodies. And THAT’S how we stay alive, and will be able to do our activities every day!
