Digestion is a process where food is acted upon mechanically by chewing and then chemically by acids and enzymes in the intestines. As a result, the food is broken down into simpler chemical compounds.For example, protein is broken into its amino acids, fats are broken into fatty acids and starches and sugars are broken down to simple sugars. Proper digestion is essential to help you enjoy good health-by eating fresh wholesome food, taking digestive enzymes and creating favourable acid base in the intestines helps makes this possible. We supply formulas that address probiotic flora, correct pH balance & deliver a high digestive enzyme pool to break down foods and support liver function. We believe that everyone over age 50 should take Power Plant Enzymes to help break down pepsin found in proteins; this formula stops bloating and gas after eating as well as digestive discomfort in the elderly.
