Indigestion, gas, bloating, constipation, heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, food sensitivity issues can take the joy out of eating . . . no matter how careful you are.indigestion.jpg

Sometimes our American diet can give us a pain in the belly. Comfort foods such pizza, ice cream, spicy chili, cheesecake, philly cheese-steak smothered in onions, hotdogs and hamburgs with fries leave us feeling yucky. We loved them once. We wish we could eat our favorite foods again.

What happened? What can you do about it?

What happened is that as you get older, your body naturally cuts back on production of substances you need for proper digestion. These substances are called enzymes. Enzymes are the life force catalysts. They must be present before any chemical reaction can take place.

Everything that goes on inside your body things depend on enzyme action.

Even vitamins, minerals. and hormones cannot do their jobs without enzymes! Enzymes keep your heart beating regularly, your eyesight sharp, your muscles contraction and relaxing. Without enzymes your food would never get converted into a form your cells could use. The nutrients would never make it from your GI tract into your bloodstream. Your cells would slowly starve to death and would be unable to build and repair itself.

Most of your enzymes are manufactured in your pancreas and a few are produced by your salivary glands and the walls of the intestine. You get dozen of enzymes in foods you eat, especially in raw foods.

But if you are unable to break down your food into small enough particles, you will suffer from inflammation of the organs as well as the joints. Good digestion will affect your breathing, elimination, nervous system, blood pressure, insulin/sugar controls, and hormones, among other functions.

You know that your digestion is poor when you have the following symptoms: burps and belches, excessive gas, heartburn, nausea, constipation, feeling tired after eating, or an allergic reaction to particular foods. Also, certain food cravings or foods you eat the most—caffeine, chocolate, refined sugars, and cooked and processed foods—could be clues to an enzyme-related problem.

    I have been taking digestive enzymes for 2 weeks and my gas and bloating seems worse not better. What can I do?

    When your digestive enzymes contains probiotic, which is good, it is adding friendly bacteria to your intestines. This may produce more gas and bloating . . . before it gets better.

    As a rule, when using supplement, it’s different for everybody. Some people see a difference in a day, some people see a difference in a month. Your body didn’t get in this condition over night and it’s not going to fix over night. It’s always good to give yourself a minimum of 3 months on the product, to give it a chance to work. Your body has to adjust, esp if you have a lot going on.
