Lesson 6: The Digestive System (page 8 of 8)

Medical science has discovered that many stomach problems, including ulcers, are associated with a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) .



A properly functioning digestive system is a prerequisite to good health. Even the healthiest foods and the best nutritional supplements can do us little good if they are not properly digested and assimilated by the body.Digestive disturbances are very common today, as reflected in the millions of dollars consumers spend on antacids. Unfortunately, these only provide short-term relief and they usually do more harm than good for those who use them habitually.

The good news is there is a better way to handle digestive disturbances. Prudent nutritional supplementation can serve as a great aid to this system, especially the supplementation of enzymes that are removed from our foods during processing and cooking.
