One of the main causes of indigestion, heartburn, gas, bloating and constipation is a lack of digestive enzymes in your stomach and intestine. Because of antibiotics, other nonprescription and prescription drugs, chlorinated and fluoride-full water, it has been shown that most people simply do not have enough digestive enzymes in their system, slowing a persons’ metabolism and blocking the absorption of nutrients. Your body’s ability to produce digestive enzymes has been dramatically reduced. Therefore I believe you need to take digestive enzymes for a period of time until your body is cleansed and rejuvenated, so it can produce the correct amount on its own. Taking digestive enzymes can eliminate acid reflux, heartburn, indigestion, gas, bloating, and constipation. Also (chewing your food completely) is the best way to restore the digestive enzymes in your stomach and intestine. The more you chew the more digestive juices your body will produce.
