RULE YOUR SYSTEM
Here are some ideas about how you should balance your diet and digestive enzyme intake for best results. These are highly dependent upon your individual needs or concerns. You should have an honest conversation with your doctor or a nutrition specialist f
Supplement enzymes that improve digestion of foods you have difficulty with.
Seek out these enzymes and consume small amounts of these foods to your tolerance, following the labeling instruction on these stand-alone or full-spectrum enzyme products.
Consume plenty of fiber based on your tolerance and need.
The average American does not consume enough fiber. Fiber is the nondigestible form of carbohydrates that we consume through plants (vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, etc.). Fiber comes in both insoluble and soluble forms, and it can speed or slow digestion. Seek out the foods or supplemental forms that support your condition.
Support your health with probiotics.
Probiotics are the healthy bacteria that live in our GI system. These “bugs” support efficient, healthy digestion. While you can increase these through supplementation, you can also boost them through food choices that are high in yeast and fungi. Good choices include yogurt, kombucha, kefir, sauerkraut, miso, and (yay!) dark chocolate.
Get in the foods that boost your health goals.
Foods should be your primary way to target any nutrition deficits. Use the other supplements and suggestions in this article to help you make the foods you consume more effective as you strive for long-term health and well-being.
