Digestion is the process of converting the foods we eat into substances our bodies can absorb and use at the cellular level. Digestive enzymes are the important structures that break down the fats, proteins, and carbohydrates we eat so our body can absorb and use them. How do you know you have digestive challenges?
- Burping and bloated
- Occasional constipation
- Occasional diarrhea
These issues can have many root causes. Enzyme supplementation, unlike conventional digestive aids, works with your body to address the root of the problem instead of merely masking it. Some issues that start with digestion and involve the immune system may also be alleviated.
How Can I Improve My Digestion
Since digestive challenges can center around enzyme imbalance, adding additional enzymes through whole food supplements may assist the body’s digestion and contribute to overall health.
- Supply additional enzymes that may be missing from the body due to natural dysfunction, aging, health challenges, or emotional stress
- Help in the absorption of key vitamins, minerals, and nutrients
- Help you digest food after a large meal
- Help you digest food that hasn’t been chewed properly
