“You Are What You ________.”
Most people would probably say “eat”, especially if you’re reading a health and fitness based newsletter.
Of course, you could also say “read,” “study,” or, one of my favorites, “think.”
But, “eat” is indeed the direction I’m going with this. HOWEVER…
“You are what you eat” is an incomplete statement.
A more accurate statement would be…
YOU ARE WHAT YOU DIGEST.
You see, while eating healthy, nutrient-dense, supportive food is far better than processed junk, to get the most out of the good food you eat…you have to actually absorb all the nutrients they provide. That’s where good digestion comes in.
Sadly, thanks to our Standard American Diet, most of us have pretty broken digestive systems. Add in stress, alcohol, and medications and we’ve got all kinds of digestive issues.
Some common symptoms of poor digestion include gas, bloating, headaches, burping, reflux, fatigue, muscle, and joint aches, and constant hunger. Chronic poor digestion even leads to leaky gut syndrome, food intolerance, and a stubborn paunch belly.
Simple Tips to Help Improve Digestion
- Slow down when you eat! This is a HUGE one for me. I have a really hard time with this. I think it goes all the way back to high school when we only had 20 minutes to get and eat our food. Then as a personal trainer for so many years in the health club space performing multiple back-to-back sessions through the mornings and evenings I would INHALE food between clients. It’s a bad habit that has stuck with me.
- Limit inflammatory and gut-rotting foods. You can’t get a million dollar body eating off the dollar menu!
- Support your body with high-quality supplements designed for maximum absorption, as well as key nutrients to aid in gut health and digestion.
Eniva’s Digest-EZ® is a digestive supplement that has been formulated to aid the body’s natural process of digestion. Its combination of broad-spectrum digestive enzymes, herbal components, activating alfalfa nutrients, and the metabolic enzyme Catalase provide a scientifically balanced formula that aids in healthy digestion and overall body health.*
The body requires enzymes to properly use the nutrients provided in food to support overall health.* If proper enzyme levels are not present, many vital nutrients from your food will go unused by the body.
Digest-EZ® is an additional assurance your body will function at its best – with vibrant energy, comfortable digestion, and a healthy immune system.*
Even though Janell and I follow a very supportive nutrition program 90% of the time, we both feel better when we take 1-2 capsules with our 3 main meals each day.
It’s not just a matter of selecting foods that support your health and fitness goals. You also have to make sure you’re absorbing the nutrients those wonderful foods provide. That’s why good digestion is so important and that’s where Digest-EZ® comes in!
Many people believe that digestive enzyme supplements have become the most vital nutritional discovery since vitamins and minerals. All of the processes of life depend on enzymes, which are involved in the function of every system in our bodies. Where there are no enzymes, there is no life.
If you have any digestive issues or you just want to maximize the benefits of your nutrition program, I encourage you to give Eniva Health Digest-EZ® a try.
