Are Digestive Enzymes the Missing Link for Better Health and Energy?

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably experienced at least one of the following conditions:

  •  Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Dull Skin
  • Fatigue
  • GERD
  • Headaches
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Insomnia
  • Joint Pain

These all too familiar complaints may have a common origination. .Surprisingly, it’s entirely possible that these problems may be caused by a lack of digestive enzymes!

The first indications of enzyme deficiency often come from the digestive system itself, in the form of heartburn, gas, bloating and belching. Other digestive symptoms may include diarrhea, stomach aches and constipation. There is even a correlation to headaches, chronic fatigue, yeast infections, obesity and Type II diabetes.

Keep in mind that digestive problems concern not only the stomach, intestines and colon, but involve the liver, pancreas, and gall bladder as well.

Other major health conditions, such as arthritis, hypoglycemia and depression can also be linked to a digestive enzyme deficiency. Even allergies, sinus infections and the common cold can be indicators. This is especially true if you suffer from these ailments chronically and out of season.

All of these varied symptoms and conditions may be evidence that the body cannot effectively process the food you’ve eaten.

So if you have the sinking feeling that you should be buying stock in CVS or Walgreen’s or if your medicine cabinet it overflowing, you’ll definitely want to read on —because the the key to ending these ailments may be as simple as making sure your digestive system gets the enzymes it needs to digest food properly.

Why are food enzymes so important?

Basically an a enzyme is a protein that increases chemical reactions. Enzymes make life possible. Without enzymes, vegetation wouldn’t grow and ripen, trees wouldn’t change color in the fall and re-leaf in the spring, and our bodies couldn’t function.

Enzymes serve to detoxify and heal our bodies. They allow your body to digest and absorb food, and regulate countless physiological operations. Even brain activity involves enzymes. Digestive enzymes also help break down undigested foods that get stuck to our intestinal walls.

But unfortunately, aging diminishes our bodies’ ability to produce the enzymes that are so necessary — and when foods are left undigested in our bodies, they begin to ferment and rot in our intestines and colon. This may lead to an overload of harmful toxins.

This vivid image drives home the powerful message regarding the role enzymes play in our bodies.

Metabolic vs. Digestive Enzymes

The body produces two types of enzymes, digestive and metabolic.

Metabolic enzymes are needed for all bodily functions. When you eat cooked or processed foods, most of the naturally occurring food enzymes are destroyed. This forces the body to take over and supply all of the needed digestive enzymes. Eventually overproduction can stress the pancreas and hinder its ability to produce metabolic enzymes.

Approximately 33% of the body’s energy is spent digesting food. People with poor digestion can use even more energy trying to digest food properly. The less energy the body spends on digesting food the less hungry you will feel, and the more energy you will have.

In addition, when food is not completely broken down, undigested proteins, fats and minerals can form uric acid crystals that may lead to kidney stones and joint pain. These enzymes may also help break down fatty deposits that build up inside your blood vessels, which restrict blood flow.

Digestive enzymes also play a critical role in improving your immune system by reducing metabolic stress on the digestive system.

Could digestive enzymes be any more important?

The easy way to boost digestive enzyme levels and improve health

There are actually two good ways to do this…

Even if your body isn’t producing enough enzymes on its own, there are several fine digestive supplements that can lend a helping handing. Ultrazyme™ is one such product. This professional grade dietary enzyme is formulated with active digestive enzymes making it perfectly suited to assist in the healthy functioning of the body’s digestion process.

Ultrazyme™ provides high levels of active pancreatic enzymes for fat, carbohydrate and protein digestion. This product also helps prevent allergens from crossing the gastrointestinal tract, and assists in the breakdown of large macromolecular protein complexes, which means, in simple terms, that it will reduce any allergenic responses.

There is a lot of well-researched science and research behind the development of this product, but the basic formula is simple… Good Health = A Long & Happy Life
