In order to assimilate vitamins and nutrients from our food and supplements, we must be able to digest them properly. Studies show that the foods in the typical American diet are devoid of natural enzymes and do little to help secrete our own production of enzymes. Thus, foods do not get digested well and nutrients from food are poorly absorbed. Poor digestive health can lead to various health disorders. Many health experts agree that regular consumption of enzymes and enzyme-rich foods is a key to vibrant health, disease prevention, and anti-aging. Every cell in the body needs enzymes for its biochemical functions, thus a deficiency will accelerate the aging process.
