Enzymes Study - Digestion Health Critical as we age.
Brightman, LifeSource Vitamins
As we age our bodies produce fewer enzymes that are essential for breaking
down the food we consume extracting energy and nutrients. As a result,
undigested food passes into the colon and causes cramping, bloating gas,

bodies cannot keep up without help.

fats from passing through the GI tract producing uncomfortable symptoms. It
can also cause malnutrition because it prevents our bodies from absorbing
valuable fat-soluble vitamins.

and allows smoother digestion of tough vegetables, i.e., broccoli,
asparagus, and beans.
is an Enzyme that promotes complete digestion of carbohydrates and
starches. Amylase deficiency allows undigested carbohydrates to pass on to
the colon. This leads to cramping, gas, and diarrhea.
which is extracted from pineapples contains powerful protease Enzymes. This
is especially helpful in people with chronic pancreatic insufficiency (when
the pancreas doesn’t produce enough digestive enzymes).
Digestive Enzymes can do what no commercial drug can by addressing the
underlying causes of distressing poor digestive symptoms and poor nutrient
