Digestive Enzymes Diminish with Age

"Your digestive enzymes play a critical role in your gut health — they serve to protect the gut lining by breaking down your food, they help eliminate toxins and allow you to absorb critical nutrients from your food…provided of course you’re eating a healthy diet! Did you know your digestive enzymes deteriorate as you age? Digestive enzymes occur naturally in raw foods, but how much raw food do most of us eat? Processed foods, stress, and environmental factors can further impact your digestive enzymes. Many complementary and alternative medicine practitioners advise their patients to use digestive enzymes."
