It is not what we put in our mouth that our metabolism absorbs.
What we put in our mouth is going into a large reaction vessel with bacteria and enzymes, where all kinds of transformations of the original input takes place.
We then feed from this living organic mixture, taking from it what is particularly suitable.
This internal organic mass is very stable in a healthy individual, and has a pretty good tolerance for diverse input, and the different bacteria can quickly adapt to pre-process different components.
