Did you know that your natural ability to digest food declines with age? This is because your body produces fewer enzymes — which are the proteins responsible for digesting food. Fewer enzymes means more difficulty digesting food. This is especially true if you cook your food because cooking kills enzymes. This is where supplementing with a high-quality enzyme supplement can be a huge help. I personally recommend Masszymes by BiOptimizers. It’s a best-in-class supplement loaded with full-spectrum enzymes for digesting proteins, starches, sugars, fibers, and fats. If you want freedom from your food, especially during the Holiday season, try Masszymes risk-free at and use coupon code WELLFED  to receive a 10% discount off your order.
