Think about it, if your digestive system is not running smoothly, food, healthy or not, supplements and even medications will not be absorbed at their most optimal level. If these are not being fully broken down and absorbed, your body will not be able to function at it’s most optimal level. This makes you a prime candidate for many diseases including allergies, IBS, eczema, autoimmune diseases, cancer and more.
