Are digestive enzymes for everyone?

When you follow your food’s journey through the digestive tract, it’s easy to see how something can quickly go wrong. In the complex work of digestion, any imbalance, including a lack or imbalance of enzymes, can upend the entire process.  Faulty digestion, or the poor absorption of life-sustaining nutrients, creates lasting damage. When left untreated, this can lead to chronic conditions such as:

  • Ulcers
  • Acid reflux
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • IBD diverticulosis (Crohn’s disease)

What can upset the balance of enzymes?  Poor diet, illness, aging, and antibiotics can all disturb the digestive process.  Modern day lifestyle makes the work of maintaining a healthy digestive system an ongoing and unavoidable task. Remembering that you are what you digest, don’t put off consulting an expert if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of poor digestion. Make the decision to prioritize the health of your digestive and pancreatic enzymes today and start feeling better for years to come!

Food Enzymes info:  assist the body with the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and fats to help prevent and relieve occasional indigestion.  (See note below!)

Please be advised that some irritated or inflamed conditions may need to  be calmed down before adding certain enzymes.    That’s another good reason for consulting a    knowledgeable practitioner about your particular situation.  *One example would be the irritation to the small intestine that can occur after having the gallbladder out (because there is a constant drip of bile.)
