I’d like to expose a lie that you’ve heard probably a thousand times, if not once, and that is simply the phrase, “You are what you eat.” You see, that’s just simply not true. You are actually what you absorb and you assimilate.
You see, I have clients come into Depke Wellness all the time that have high levels of nutritional integrity, yet they’re significantly malnourished. We see it on multiple levels. Which is the importance of helping your body being able to break down your protein, your fat, your carbohydrates to absorb and assimilate, your vitamins, your minerals, as well as enzymes and coenzymes. They all play an integral role and you enjoying the benefits of the food that you’re putting into your mouth on a regular daily basis.
Now, with this, we can also all understand that we live a relatively stressed out lifestyle. That in itself can hinder your digestive ability. Throw on top of that the potential of food sensitivities, of infections in your gut, inflammation in your gut, or toxicity in your body. All of this will have a significant impact on your ability to absorb and assimilate foods.
Which is why every day I personally take the 1, 2, 3 of Digestion, and I would recommend that for you as well.
What this is, the 1 of the 1, 2, 3 of Digestion is your pre-probiotic, taking two capsules every morning to help create the correct balance of bacteria in your gastrointestinal system.
The 2 of the 1, 2, 3 of Digestion is taking a digestive enzyme with each of your meals. The simple fact is you probably cooked food. Cooked food is void of the natural occurring enzymes and for you to get the full benefit of the first third of your stomach, you need enzymes for a pre-digestive process. Now, when you take an enzyme, you also want to use an enzyme that is both animal and plant based to help you break down all of the different foods that you would be eating.
The part 3 of the 1, 2, 3 of Digestion is toward the end of the meal, taking one capsule of the prime stomach acid support, which is a combination of betaine HCL, as well as pepsin, to not only help break down your protein into amino acids that are essential for your health, but also for the absorption of B vitamins and the absorption of the minerals because if you’re missing the stomach acid, you’re simply not going to make your minerals bioavailable. Even if you’re eating high quality foods or taking higher quality supplements, you still might be missing the minerals that you’re truly looking for.
To be able to enhance your availability of absorbing and assimilating your foods, get the 1, 2, 3 of Digestion now. This will play a huge part in you reaching your health goals.
Thank you so much for your time!
