Trouble absorbing food?

As we age our pancreas decides its working too hard and puts out less enzymes which are needed to just about every chemical reaction in our body. There are about 1300 different enzymes in the human cell and they team up with co-enzymes to form a multitude of different chemicals that enable our body to run and especially to digest food.

Metabolic enzymes are necessary for cellular function. Digestive enzymes produced mostly in the pancreas, are secreted along the digestive tract to break down food into nutrients and waste. Without them most of the nutrients in food wouldn’t get absorbed. Raw foods also provide enzymes, but mostly those are just to digest that particular food.

So, if our pancreas is falling down on the job what can we do? Supplements are the key. Amalyse breaks down starch and sugar, protease – proteins; lipase – fat; lactase – lactose from diary; cellulase – fiber; maltase and sucrose – sugar. Seventy percent of your immune system is in your gut and when the digestive system works well, it serves as a barrier to bacteria, viruses and pathogens – a great reason to take digestive enzymes. You can read more about enzymes in The Secrets of Staying Young http://www.safegoodspub.com/secrets.html  Best advice is to place a multi-enzyme supplement on the table and take one with most meals, but for a heavy meal, maybe two or three. You can find our recommendation at http://bit.ly/ZTjsep which is a plant-based combination. It is also essential that you give older pets enzymes too….  http://bit.ly/18302MF this is one we like.

In the end if you use enzymes when you eat any cooked food, you will most likely not have to reach for your antacid and the nutrients you absorb will hopefully keep you healthy for a long time.

  1. Nice post. I recommend using this http://tinyurl.com/mvxkx38
    It helps in absorption. I also notice that I have regular bowel movement. It’s a detox and it’s proven safe and effective.

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
