These enzymes are found naturally in food, but most cooking temperatures destroy or severely deplete their numbers. Shove irregular type foods into our stomachs, especially over a lengthy period like Thanksgiving Day – let’s be honest, when else do you combine a large bird dinner with sweet potato pie and cranberry sauce? – and you have, pardon the pun, a recipe for trouble. That’s part of the reason most of us get tired after such a big meal (tryptophan aside). Our ordered bodily functions are reacting to the perceived attack on our digestion and thereby shut down non-essential utilities. Of greater concern is that if the lessening of adequate enzymes continues, as it can even once you return to a ‘normal’ life, you may be more apt to get sick or have a greater percentage of the nutrients stored as body fat instead of going to more productive areas. To help restore stability, taking a dietary supplement, like ProBLEN’s New Digestive Enzyme/Probiotic formula can assist you through the up and downs of the Holidays. You can also team up on your body by adding a Multi Plus vitamin to your regimen. That way you can maintain a healthy metabolism while slamming back some of that deep-fried turkey.
