Digestive Health: Everyone Needs Enzymes
Digestive enzymes are required to digest food properly. They do
a considerable amount of the work in constructing, manufacturing,
eliminating, and delivering the chemicals that make your body function.
A Lack of Enzymes Leads To…
An inadequate supply of enzymes will make a difference in your digestive
health, and contribute directly to common conditions like heartburn,
indigestion, bloating, gas, and constipation.
Your body’s capacity to produce enzymes diminishes as you
age. Over time you notice the symptoms as you encounter challenges
with eating certain foods, feeling fatigued, gaining weight, or
many other symptoms you wouldn’t automatically associate with
Research found thirty times more enzymes in the saliva of young
adults than in that of persons sixty-nine years of age.
Howell, E. Enzyme Nutrition. Avery Publishing Co. 1985
Diminished levels of digestive enzymes will stress our body causing
two things, neither of which is good:
- Stage 1—to create enzymes needed to digest food the body
works overtime, adversely affecting the immune system and reducing
our ability to fight disease
- Stage 2—an overworked body can no longer make enough enzymes
to digest the food we eat, which then becomes a pollutant and
increases the occurrence of chronic diseases
Lifestyle Makes a Difference
A depleted supply of digestive enzymes is a problem compounded by
poor dietary habits like eating too much fat and sugar, and eating
on the go. Stress and pollution damage and even kill cells, which
means your body’s construction workers (enzymes) have to work
even harder to repair and rebuild your body and maintain your immune
Common lifestyle disturbances like liver problems, migraines, PMS,
juvenile hyperactivity, adult onset diabetes, kidney disease, high
blood pressure, and heartburn can frequently be identified to have
their start from earlier nutritional problems.
Stay Healthy: Supplement Your Enzyme Supply
It takes up to 80% of our body’s energy to completely digest
and convert the food we eat into usable components. And while raw
foods can supply many valuable digestive enzymes, one fact remains:
We can’t eat all raw foods. You wouldn’t eat raw chicken
for example, so you need some source for these extra enzymes, because
cooking breaks down the naturally-occurring enzymes we need for
We recommend finding these extra enzymes in a quality supplement

Supplemental digestive enzymes deliver the nutrients necessary to
