Complete digestion, optimal nutrient absorption
BY STEVE BORN
Many nutritional experts agree that healthy digestion is key to overall health because it allows us to access all the nutrients in the food we eat. Unfortunately, the typical American diet contains a high volume of enzyme-devoid processed foods. Cooking also destroys the enzymes that naturally occur in food.
Proper digestion of the food we eat most definitely affects microbiome health. In fact, the headline of one study clearly states, “Undigested Food and Gut Microbiota May Cooperate in the Pathogenesis of Neuroinflammatory Diseases.” A portion of this study’s conclusion: “The route to disease involves the participation of both the microbiota and undigested food fragments.”
Many nutritional experts agree that healthy digestion is key to overall health because it allows us to access all of the nutrients in the food we eat, while positively influencing nearly aspect of human health. That’s why while the quality of the food you eat is undeniably important, making sure you’re efficiently digesting your food and absorbing the nutrients it contains is equally important. That’s where enzymes come in; they’re powerful catalysts that help maintain efficient digestion and maximize nutrient absorption.
Unfortunately, the typical American diet contains a high volume of enzyme-devoid processed foods. Cooking also destroys the enzymes that naturally occur in food. Add to that the natural age-related decrease in bodily enzyme production, and it’s no wonder that so many people are dealing with numerous health issues, particularly GI health.
Well-known digestive health expert, Dr. Lane Lenard, states, “Many of the health complaints that plague aging adults—from impaired immunity to digestive distress and nutritional deficiencies—can be traced to a key underlying factor: poor digestive health. One common cause of impaired digestive health is an age-related decline in the digestive enzymes needed to extract essential nutrients from the foods we eat. Without these crucial enzymes, food passes through the gastrointestinal tract without yielding its beneficial constituents. The result is poor nutritional status, which can contribute to numerous disease processes.”
To help resolve this problem, a digestive enzyme supplement—one that contains multiple enzymes to break down and digest a variety of foods and food substances—is a vital necessity. Hammer Nutrition’s EnduroZyme is that supplement, supplying not only an impressive 14 different types of non-animal enzymes, but effective amounts of each of these enzymes. In addition, EnduroZyme’s Whole Leaf Blend--peppermint leaf, aloe vera leaf, and artichoke leaf—provides numerous benefits for many aspects of gastrointestinal health. Lastly, EnduroZyme contains Bioperine™, a standardized black pepper extract that enhances the absorption of whole food and dietary supplements.
Bottom Line: Regardless of your food choice, you must break it down to put it to use. EnduroZyme does the job. By ensuring full breakdown of your food, you’ll experience immediate improvements in your digestion. With consistent use, you’ll feel steady improvement in your health, energy level, and athletic outputs, as your body accesses nutrients better.
