Enzymes, Immune Builders, and Healthy Delicious Foods
Give Your Family the Gift of... Enzymes!
Why do so many people gain unwanted pounds over the holiday
season? It's simple, there's less exercise, and more eating going
on... and the foods we're eating this time of year are usually sweeter and more
fattening! There is a limit to how much holiday fun food our bodies can
break down and burn off. To enjoy these rich foods while keeping
physically fit, make enzymes part of your family's holiday meal plan.
Supplement your diet year-round with natural digestive and systemic
enzymes. Because we eat more cooked and processed foods than our ancient
ancestors, there are fewer enzymes in our food than we need to break it all
down. Enzymes are completely natural, and help our bodies with increased
metabolism (weight loss), detoxification, improved energy, nutrient absorption,
and much more!
Digestive enzymes work directly on the foods we eat for better digestion and
bowel regularity. Systemic enzymes, on the other hand, work in the
bloodstream; providing better circulation, reduced inflammation throughout the
body, and help with overall well-being and longevity. Read about benefits
and contra-indications by clicking the provided links to specific products, or

Here are a few product suggestions that are available for purchase from our
-Digestzymes by Designs For Health - A
complete broad spectrum enzyme formula to help digest fats, protein and
carbohydrates. Not recommended for a history of ulcers.
-Glutenzyme by Pharmax - A specialized
formula used to digest gluten... for those with sensitivity to gluten
including ADHD, Autism, food allergies, celiac, etc.

-Vitalzyme X by World Nutrition - Works

Take digestive enzyme with meals, and
systemic enzymes in between meals. Of course we all must
remember to include some exercise in our holiday plans. Long walks are
especially helpful in improving our circulation and
digestion, while not over-exerting ourselves after enjoying a large meal.
Another benefit to taking a long walk is that you can enjoy it with your loved
ones so you don't have to break away from the party!
You Don't Have To Catch Colds: Let's Talk
Why do we tend to catch more colds and flu viruses during the
colder months? The truth is, the viruses that cause these ailments are
attacking us year round. The difference is that we tend to eat more
unhealthy foods during these months, and our immune systems are less able to
put up the necessary fight to keep us healthy.
To maintain immune strength, we need to get the proper rest, physical activity,
nutrition, and immune-boosting supplementation. It helps to keep in mind
that each of these factors is influenced by the others. For example,
eating properly can energize you to get more exercise, which can lead to a
deeper sleep, and so on.
Here are some products we suggest to boost your immune system, and help ward
off viruses and other illnesses, so you can enjoy a cold-free cold season!

probiotics supplement promotes the growth of healthy bacteria throughout the
digestive tract, which accounts for 60% of our entire immune system. These
