Why is this important? Because enzymes are part of every important process in your body.

In particular, enzymes are important for digestion. Without enough, you won’t get the optimal nutrition from what you eat. And that isn’t a good thing.

It’s especially not good when you consider that food is already lower in nutrients than it was 100 years ago.
