Enzymes...Easing Digestive Concerns If you have problems with indigestion, gas, bloating, constipation or reflux, a digestive enzyme supplement can help your body break down the foods you eat. When food is broken down more thoroughly, fewer digestive complaints occur.
Most medications taken for digestive discomfort merely mask symptoms without correcting the under-lying cause. If you are currently taking any over-the-counter or prescription medications, consider switching to digestive enzyme supplements, the natural solution for digestive problems.
Supplementing Digestion Your digestive tract is not designed to handle the modern diet of cooked and processed food. Nature intended it to take advantage of the enzymes present in all raw foods.
Enzymes...the Key to Digestion Your body uses enzymes to digest the food you eat. Two ways you get enzymes to perform this task are externally from the food you eat (food enzymes) and internally from your digestive organs (digestive enzymes). But when your food is cooked or processed at temperatures greater than 118°F, the enzymes in the food are destroyed.
To compensate for these lost food enzymes, your body must work harder and create more digestive enzymes to fully digest your food. If you've ever felt sleepy after a meal, it's because your body is working harder than it should to digest the food you've eaten. And when your body has to work harder at digestion, it doesn't have as much energy to devote to other functions, like protecting itself against foreign invaders (immune function) and making new cells and tissues. When your body compensates for lost enzymes, your health suffers.
Enzymes...Supplementing Digestion By taking an enzyme supplement with each meal or snack, you will replace some of the enzymes lost when food is cooked or processed. You will get more nutrition out of your food, allowing your digestive organs to spend less effort on digestion and more energy on keeping your body healthy. Because each of us has a different diet and a different digestive system, it is important to take the right blend of enzymes to help with digestion and meet your specific health needs.
