When it comes to your body’s overall health what you see and feel on the outside is all directly affected by what’s going on on the inside. This is where a myriad of biological processes occur; from the breakdown and absorption of your food, to the excretion of toxins and wastes from your body. Your gut is directly responsible for your immune health, overall well being, and your body’s ability to lose weight. America’s highly processed, low fiber diet has led to a multitude of deficiencies in the digestive system, however, this can be remedied through proper diet and supplementation to restore the gut’s natural biome.
Digestive enzymes are produced in the pancreas and small intestine, they are responsible for breaking down our food into readily available nutrients. If we do not have enough digestive enzymes our body is unable to properly break down our food, so even if we are eating well our bodies are not absorbing the vital nutrients. This triggers fat storage which increases our appetites, leading to weight gain and food cravings. *Improper diet leads to toxic gut, causing people who otherwise appear in shape, to have protruding stomachs and an inability to lose weight.
How You Can Make It Work Better
For patients focused on long term weight loss, supplementation is necessary. The typical American diet consists of processed carbohydrates, high protein, and fat, we simply do not eat enough raw fruits and vegetables which leads to poor digestive health and toxicity. Supplementation with digestive enzymes and probiotics will allow your body to break down foods for proper utilization, aid in the recovery of your digestive system, and allow your body to lose the weight.
Good digestive health is vital for overall well being, providing many benefits within the body. Here are some additional ways supplementation can help:
Digestive Enzyme Supplementation
- Helps with weight loss
- Naturally controls appetite
- Aids in relieving indigestion
- Also helps with acid reflux/ heartburn
- Relieves irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Reduces fatigue, insomnia, and joint pain
The longer your body has suffered from a depletion of digestive enzymes, the longer it will take for your body to recover. It may take several weeks for your body to adjust as it is being nourished and cleansed of toxins so it is important to be patient during your healing process.
