On Air show from May 18, 2013.

Please meet me again this Saturday morning on "Gesundheit! With Jacobus", and enjoy my guest Dr. Alisun Bonville.

Our topics: Digestion, In-Digestion, Gut Health and Metabolism pretty much explain anything that happens when we eat.

Dr. Bonville will discuss how our foods turn into single nutrients, and how those nutrients make it all the way to our cells, so they can be properly utilized.

It’s a fascinating process that is actually pretty complex. Dr. Alisun will chew on this topic all week, and spit-it-out for us.
