summary: the GI tract is a single cell barrier of protection between the outside world & the inside of our body. Immune cells are numerous here. It digests (breaksdown) foods, and absorbs the nutrients & water to enter our blood stream. ...Read more
Absorbs Nutrients: That's a very complicated question and there is not an easy answer. The body breaks down the food you eat to its component parts and then absorbs that to create energy. You can find a lot of information at your local library or on the internet. ...Read more

Look at diet first: Whatever goes into your gut affects what happens. Review your diet. If you aren't eating a healthy diet, it's likely you'll have some symptoms. You should be aiming for a diet high in fiber (fruits, veggies, whole grains), low in red meat (notice I didn't say none!); proteins should be lean.
