Health Depends on Good Digestion

Digestive enzymes, first recognized for their benefits decades ago, are gaining new-found market presence as research reveals how closely digestive health is linked with overall health.

Digestive Fact:

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

“Consumers are more aware than ever about their nutritional needs and what items need to be supplemented to feel 100 percent, and digestive enzymes fill the functional ingredient model,” said Bret Wyant of American Laboratories, Inc.

The digestive aids and enzymes sales category increased 23 percent in 2010. This trend is likely to continue in today’s economy as proactive consumers seek natural solutions to safeguard their health and well-being, according to Mark Anderson, PhD, director of Research and Development at Triarco Industries.


Possible Enzyme Deficiency?
An estimated 50 percent of all adults do not produce enough digestive enzymes. “The everyday stress of modern lifestyles, increases in fast-food consumption and processed food diets are just a few factors contributing to digestive distress. Issues can include bloating, malabsorption of proteins and other nutrients, fatigue, acid reflux and many other challenges that impact our quality of life, “ said Scott Ravech, CEO of Deerland Enzymes, Inc. *

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. Enzyme deficiency may be a reason for a lack of energy and sense of well-being.

The body maintains its energy and well-being through digestion of nutrients in foods. The digestive process depends on enzymes to break down foods into their basic building blocks so the body can use them. Enzymes may be the most overlooked dietary component for greater energy.

To prevent enzyme depletion and improve digestion, many naturopathic physicians recommend a plant enzyme supplement taken before meals. *
