Dr Oz: Digestive Enzymes Boost Immunity & Age Lowers Enzyme Production


Dr Oz: Digestive Enzymes Keep You Healthy

Do you feel like no matter what you do you cannot seem to stay healthy? Do you eat well, exercise, and get plenty of rest, but still seem to get sick all the time? The reason could be something you would have never thought of, but Dr. Oz is revealing the important factors that could be the key to boosting your immune system!

Dr Oz: Enzymes Boost Your Immune System

Dr. Oz is talking about your gut today, but this time he is talking specifically about the health of your gut and the role it plays in your health. There could be something missing that is causing you to get sick all the time and Dr. Oz has the answer that might surprise you. Our entire body is filled with enzymes and the ones found in our gut could be the most important in keeping us healthy. Factors like lifestyle, stress and aging can lower your enzyme production which could be making you sick. Dr. Robynne Chutkan explained that enzymes are crucial to your immune system because they are responsible for breaking down food into nutrients that your body needs in order to stay healthy. Did you know that 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive tract?

Dr Oz: Lactose Intolerance & Enzyme Deficiency

When you are enzyme deficient the food you eat is not being digested properly because the enzymes are not there to break down the food. This causes bacteria to build up and inflammation to occur. A good example of this is in those who are lactose intolerant. Dr. Oz explained that we are born with plenty of enzymes, but as we age we produce less and less.

Dr Oz: Fatty Foods Lower Enzyme Production

Dr. Robynne Chutkan explained that one of the causes of lower enzyme production is from eating fatty, sugary, processed foods. They are considered bad foods for the body for many reasons, but especially in the case of our enzyme production because they are difficult for the body to break down and digest. These foods also contain additives and preservatives that actually destroy the enzymes in our body, making them a real problem.

    I have had RA for 15 yrs. and I take methotrexate and sulfa. I know that these drugs can be hard on your kidneys and liver. I have tried everything and spent a lot of money trying to get off of the medications. I am 62 and other wise in pretty good health, have you any suggestions that might help me a least lower my dependence on these bad medications?
    Tired of pills!!!

    I’ve been absolutely suffering with urticaria for 10 years almost every day and plaqued with UTI’s. I’ve seen many doctors, all have been mystified with the urticaria. NO ONE has an answer for me. I’ve seen allergists, immunologist, and my primary doctor. After seeing your show today on low enzymes and having 9 of the symptoms, I’m wondering, could it be possible that is my problem?? Is there a test I could have? Please, please advise.. I feel desperate.

    Where is the list of ingredients Dr Oz said to look for in Digestive Enzyme capsules and what shouldn’t be in the ingredients? I couldn’t type fast enough and they don’t keep it on screen long enough.

    Dwayn- I found that list of ingredients you were asking about. They are listed on the page that has Dr. Oz’s recipe for his Green Drink w/Pineapple. It also has a list of enzyme rich foods. Hope this helps.
