I often get asked about what supplements I recommend and take as there are often arguments as to what supplements a woman should be taking when trying to get a flat stomach. As women, we are all familiar with that monthly ‘bloating’…well one supplement that can help get rid of that feeling and should be a part of every woman’s diet is, digestive enzymes.
Why do I need Digestive Enzymes in my Flat Stomach Diet?
Digestive enzymes help to break down your food and ensure that all the essential nutrients that you need from your food are absorbed.
The digestion process alone requires a lot of energy to complete. Without the proper supplementation of digestive enzymes to your diet your body has to work that much harder to digest food, therefore allowing less time and ability for your body to repair and rebuild itself.
Your body needs about 45 essential enzymes to function properly. The ‘essential’ part of the digestive enzyme means that your body does not produce these enzymes on its own – it must get these enzymes from the food sources you eat.
Most food enzymes are destroyed in the cooking process. Therefore, if your diet consists of mainly cooked foods, your body will not receive the benefits of the foods you eat.
Dr. DicQie, author of The Healing Power of Enzymes, talks about the importance of enzymes, saying that,Â “Eighty percent of our bodyâ€™s energy is expended by the digestive process. If you are run down, under stress…then enormous quantities of extra enzymes are required by your body. Because our entire system functions through enzymatic action, we must supplement our enzymes. Our very lives are dependent upon them!”
Lack of Enzymes in your Diet
A lack of enzymes in your diet may cause heartburn, fatigue, constipation, bloating, ulcers, allergies and/or an increase in illness.
How do I get Enzymes into my Diet?
Supplements – Taking a Essential Enzyme supplement prior to eating will provide your body with the essential enzymes needed to aide your body in the digestion process. Having these enzymes will ensure your body is receiving all the possible benefits from the food you eat. I am currently taking Source Naturals Daily Essential Enzymes with every meal.
Since adding Essential Enzymes to my diet I have felt a lot less bloated – which was SO important during my contest prep. So, make sure you are receiving the benefits of your food – add an essential enzyme to your diet today.
