The War Between “Healthy” Foods and Your Immune System
Food intolerance is caused by undigested foods, which start accumulating in the gut and begin making their way into the bloodstream.
Our immune system recognizes most amino acids as friendly molecules. By contrast, partially digested food proteins are recognized and foreign intruders, which activates the immune system to combat these “invaders”. This is how the “war” begins.
The war between the immune system and partially digested proteins can lead to serious inflammation in the gut and in other parts of the body.
