Water, vitamins, minerals, and cholesterol all need to be absorbed into the organs and tissues for their proper functioning. Foods can confer health benefits beyond their nutritional value. For example, fiber helps prevent colon cancer, and cranberries and blueberries promote urinary tract health. Organs also crave specific nutrients and your food cravings are often a sign of where your deficiency lies.
The health of every organ in your body is determined by the health of the cells that make up your organs. When the majority of cells that make up any organ in your body are healthy, that organ is likely to be healthy; the converse is true as well – when most of the cells that make up one of your organs are dysfunctional or diseased, that organ is likely to be dysfunctional.
