The missing link in nutrition

Use of  Proteolytic Enzymes

 The digestive tract has first priority on enzyme production. Food must be digested by enzymes to extract the nutrients that fuel the body. Poor digestion can ultimately weaken your ability to fight disease and result in an overtaxed system. Symptoms such as bloating, indigestion, flatulence and gen­eral discomfort after meals are signs that you may be lack­ing in enzymes, hydrochloric acid and bile. For example, people who are lactose-intolerant have difficulty digesting dairy products because they do not produce sufficient amounts of the enzyme lactase. Enzyme supplements taken with or just before meals can be helpful in preventing digestive disturbances and maximizing nutrient absorption.
