How a Top-Quality Enzyme Supplement Might Help You Once Again Enjoy the Benefits of a Good Meal
Do any of these sound familiar to you?
- You used to be able to eat anything you wanted without giving it a second thought — but now you have a mental list of foods you know will give you trouble.
- You occasionally feel bloated after you eat — like you have to unbutton your pants or loosen your belt.
- You avoid certain restaurants or certain types of food.
- You occasionally experience intestinal gas.
- You have irregular bowels — occasional constipation.
If you have occasional digestion problems with your digestive tract, you’re not alone. The discomfort of occasional abdominal bloating affects 10, 20, perhaps even 30% of adults. And if you include other abdominal signs — like occasional stomach discomfort, passing gas, or irregular bowel movements — the percentages shoot up like fireworks.
I hear from far too many people who are struggling with occasional bloating or stomach discomfort. And social embarrassment too. Oftentimes, you lose out on the pleasure of sitting down to a tasty meal because you know the price you’ll pay later. All because your digestive tract isn’t working optimally.
Fortunately, if your situation is similar to that of the many others I’ve worked with over the past several years, there’s plenty you can do to improve these occasional digestive issues — and boost your overall health in the meantime.
If you can relate to these stories than please heed your feelings of occasional abdominal discomfort. Take a few minutes with this quiz I’ve prepared. It will help you focus on any digestive issues that might be bothering you.

You Aren’t What You Eat… But You Are What You Digest and Absorb
If your body does not break down and absorb nutrients optimally, the effects can go far beyond the occasional abdominal discomfort you’re feeling.
In fact, it’s been said that a healthy digestive system is at the root of all health. That’s logical — your digestive tract is the basic source of the nourishment every cell in your body needs.
I want you to eat the healthiest, most nutritious diet possible. But if your stomach and intestines aren’t working efficiently, even the ideal diet won’t do as much for your health. You’re not going to be able to optimally extract and absorb the chemical building blocks your body depends on.
To help your digestive tract do its all-important job, you’ve got to understand some of the chemical wizardry that goes on inside your stomach and small intestine.
All too often, diminished levels of your normal digestive enzymes are the root cause of less-than-optimal digestive function. Here are a few of the many common reasons that your enzymes might be depleted.
- A generally unbalanced diet, without the right mix of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins
- Inadequate vitamin or mineral intake
- Poor eating habits — rushing through meals, not chewing thoroughly
- Exposure to artificial food additives, colorings, and preservatives
- The aging process — as you advance into middle age, a certain degree of enzyme depletion becomes almost inevitable
With all these possible factors contributing to enzyme depletion, it’s no wonder that minor digestive complaints are so common.
Fortunately, there are a number of steps you can take today to make sure your digestive tract has maximal support to do its job. It begins when you take your first bite….
