After you eat, do you feel tired?
(NC)—If you experience fatigue after eating, or experience gas, bloating, heartburn, acid reflux, or nausea, you may be suffering from impaired digestion due to a lack of proper enzymes in your system.

Enzymes are produced by our bodies and act on food in the small intestine, stomach or mouth. Food enzymes are found in raw foods, which come equipped with some of the enzymes needed for their own digestion. However, enzymes are heat–sensitive––so cooking and processing can destroy 100 per cent of the naturally occurring enzymes in food.

“The lack of inherent enzymes in the modern diet means that the pancreas, which is designed to secrete only enough enzymes to finish the job that started in the mouth and stomach, becomes overworked,” says Udo Erasmus, bestselling author and formulator of Udo's Choice.

Eventually, the body may not be able to keep up with the increased demand for enzyme secretion, allowing partially digested food particles to pass into the bloodstream. The body, not recognize these food particles as nutrients, launches an attack from the immune system in the form of an allergic reaction or inflammatory response, often resulting in digestive discomforts.

Udo's Choice digestive enzyme blends may help. Each blend contains the full spectrum of important enzymes necessary to help in the digestion and absorption of all major nutrients. These specialized formulations of active enzymes are designed to be age– and condition–specific to facilitate healthy digestion, improve nutrient absorption and immune function, increase energy levels and decrease inflammation and food allergies
