Nutrition

Digestive enzyme production decreases as you age due to the deteriorating state of your organs.  This makes diet and nutrition very important for your body because you lose absorption of protein, iron, iodine, vitamin B12, folic acid, zinc, calcium, magnesium, and other important minerals. Poor diets consisting of processed foods that lack nutrients can also diminish digestive enzyme production.  Ultimately, HCl deficiencies can lead to an overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria and fungus is the intestinal tract, which results in many gastrointestinal symptoms and potentially long-term health challenges, conditions, and diseases.  However, you can maintain normal levels of digestive enzymes by chewing thoroughly, eating a variety of raw foods, and possibly supplementing with digestive enzymes.
