Digestion is the process in which our bodies convert food into forms it can use. Food travels through the gastrointestinal tract. Digestion involves physical and chemical processes to break down food.
Metabolism is all of the processes and chemical reactions that keep your body going. Learn about the types of metabolism, and their relationship to digestion.
Insulin is a hormone that regulates glucose in the bloodstream. Metabolic syndrome is a combination of insulin resistance and other conditions that can lead to serious diseases. Learn the cause of metabolic syndrome and how processed foods contribute to it.
Eating provides energy and nutrients necessary for the body. Good nutrition involves eating food that has as many nutrients per calorie as possible. Learn how to maximize nutrients in what you eat.
Hunger is the body's way of telling you it needs nutrients; it is triggered by the brain. Appetite is the desire to eat for social or psychological reasons.
