When your digestive system is happy and working well, proteins are broken down into amino acids, fats into fatty acids and carbohydrates into glucose or fructose.
Normally your digestive system has a barrier that only allows small particles to be absorbed, those nutrients that have been completely broken down by the digestive system.

Larger proteins can get into the bloodstream before they are broken down into amino acids.
These larger proteins are not recognized by the body and can trigger the immune system.
This can lead to all sorts of problems.
