Enzyme deficiencies may result from a combination of age, diet and lifestyle. For example, natural aging depletes the amount of enzymes available for use in the body.
Also, when foods are cooked or processed, the enzymes contained within the food are destroyed, requiring the body to use its own enzymes to break down foods. Keeping up with the process of digestion can strain the body. Supplementing with enzyme products like Chewable Digest™ can speed up the digestive process for more energy.*
