Do you know what digestive enzymes can do for your gut health? 
Learn how digestive enzymes along with prebiotics and probiotics are the keys to optimal gut health!
 
Poor diets, environmental toxins, hormonal changes and aging can impact our digestive system,
commonly resulting in problems such as: 1-2
 
• Bloating
• Gas
• Heartburn
• Diarrhea
• Nausea
• Vomiting
 
You can support a well-balanced gastrointestinal (GI) tract by supplementing your diet with prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes.
 
But wait … what are prebiotics you ask?
 
Prebiotics are natural, non-digestible food components that support the growth of beneficial bacteria in your intestinal tract. Think of prebiotics as the "good" bacteria promoters for probiotics to eat and thrive.3
 
Probiotics are the "good" bacteria (also called live cultures) like those naturally found in your gut. These active cultures help change and/or repopulate intestinal bacteria to balance gut flora. 
 
When probiotics and prebiotics are combined, they work together synergistically to support your digestive health, boosting immunity and overall health especially gastrointestinal health. Both prebiotics and probiotics can be found in certain types of food. For probiotics, choose foods that will contribute live cultures such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli to your GI tract.
