The health of your digestive tract has a profound effect on the rest of your body. If your ability to breakdown and absorb food is compromised, nutrients will not be properly absorbed and this can lead to chronic health problems over time. Providing an optimal digestive environment is crucial to proper nutrient assimilation. Nutritional support for gastrointestinal health can take several forms. Enzymes work by supplementing the body’s own digestive juices to enhance nutrient assimilation and provide digestive relief. Probiotic blends help build digestive and immune health by restoring the balance of “friendly” bacteria in the gut. Amino acids like L-glutamine provide benefits to the stomach and intestinal tissues.
