During the better part of the past year, I have had the privilege of working for an online retailer of various brands of high-quality supplements. Part of my job has been to write or rewrite their blog content and one of my first projects was to write a blog on digestive enzyme deficiency. My boss was eager for me to share my knowledge related to CSID with their general readership and we both learned a lot in the process.
I have posted the first part here with a link to read the entire article on the Energetic Nutrition blog.
Finding Support for Digestive Enzyme Deficiency
More than Occasional Tummy Troubles
A healthy, fully functioning digestive system provides essential detoxification, immune system support, and energy from the proper breakdown of food. It is a well-known fact that over 70% of our immune system is located in our digestive tract.
Many times symptoms of compromised digestion do not become apparent until disease or chronic illness are present.
If the digestive system is unable to function properly, various symptoms can surface from something as simple as occasional stomach ache, acid indigestion, or flatulence to more serious chronic conditions such as food allergies or digestive disease.
When digestive problems begin to interfere with everyday life, a quick, over-the-counter solution may be the first line of defense. However, these remedies often only cover up symptoms and do not address the root of digestive distress. For long-term results, adding digestive enzyme supplements can provide the body with added digestive support in addition to alleviating symptoms.
