Your Energy and Nutrition Depend on Good Digestion

    Your body maintains its energy and health by being able to digest nutrients in foods and supplements. The digestive process depends on enzymes to break down your food into their basic building blocks so the body can use them. Without enzymes, even eating the most nutritious foods would be worthless. Enzymes may be our most overlooked dietary component.

   Food Enzymes Lacking in Processed Foods

Digestive Fact:

70 million Americans are affected by digestive problems for an annual cost of $107 billion.

- Methodist Hospital,
Houston, Texas

    Every raw food contains exactly the right amount and type of enzymes needed to digest that particular food. For example, fruits high in carbohydrates — such as apples — contain high amounts of amylase. Fruits high in fat — such as avocados — contain high amounts of lipase. Although enzymes are present in all raw foods, they are destroyed in cooked or highly processed foods. Temperatures greater than 118° F. kill enzymes. Even steaming vegetables kills enzymes, as does irradiating or microwaving. Freezing, however, does not affect enzymes.
    Today's diet consists of cooked and heavily processed foods, lacking in natural enzymes. Because the body may not be able to completely break down foods on its own, the majority of people may not get enough food enzymes in their diets to make vital nutrients available for absorption. This can lead to poor energy and health.

   Do you have an enzyme deficiency? *

    A condition that may relate to enzyme deficiency is a lack of energy and sense of well-being. As people age, they become more deficient in enzymes because enzyme stores in the body are gradually used up. This depletion starts around the age of 30.
    To prevent enzyme depletion and improve your digestion, many naturopathic physicians recommend a plant enzyme supplement taken before meals. Plant enzymes can be taken even by people with food allergies. Many cases of food allergies are helped by plant enzymes because allergic reactions will not occur when food is fully digested. Enzyme supplementation assures proper assimilation of nutritional supplements (vitamins and minerals) and foods. After all, man is not what he eats, but what he can digest.

   Take The Oatmeal Test — Here's How it Works:

    Cook up a serving of oatmeal. The oatmeal should be solid (not runny). Let the oatmeal cool off to about body temperature or 98 degrees. Feel the bottom of the bowl and if it´s warm to the touch (not hot), you´re ready for the test. Take two capsules and sprinkle one over the oatmeal. Stir it in with a fork. Then take the second capsule of Ultra Daily Enzymes and sprinkle it over the oatmeal again and continue to stir it in with the fork for 30 seconds to one minute.The oatmeal will turn into a liquid. In other words, the oatmeal is digested! The “Oatmeal Test” is simple and easy to do. Give this test a try to see the effectiveness of Ultra Daily Enzymes.
