Many Australians experience some kind of digestive problem. The typical benefits of enzyme supplementation include reduced digestive distress and improved regularity.
When undigested foods travel through the intestines they can irritate and potentially damage the sensitive intestinal wall. Over time, this irritation may reduce our digestive capacity and negatively influence the vital absorption process. Promoting proper digestion may also help relieve occasional constipation and irregularity by encourage a healthy intestinal environment.
According to Yuri Elkaim author of Eating for Energy, enzymes may even may increase physical vitality and enhanced energy levels. In many cases, up to 80% of our body’s vital energy may be spent on digestion. By aiding the breakdown and absorption of foods, Elkaim suggests you can free up significant amounts of energy.
