We find that probiotics and enzymes help me and my children tremendously!!

The pancreas is what makes digestive enzymes and puts them in our stomach to break down the food we eat. All foods have enzymes in them but anytime a food is cooked or processed it kills the enzymes. With our diets today of mostly cooked and processed foods it’s hard for our pancreas to be able to produce enough enzymes. Without enough enzymes in the stomach to break down the food the only thing our stomach knows to do is produce more acid to try to break it down. Too much acid in the stomach will cause heart burn, acid reflux, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.

If a parent has a pancreas that isn’t producing enough enzymes then it is possible that their children can be born with a pancreas that doesn’t work well either. If the mother will take a supplement of enzymes and probiotics while pregnant she will pass these on to her baby and have a baby with a healthy digestive system.

Probiotics are the good, live bacteria that live in our body. One of the things they do is coat and protect our entire digestive tract (and also the ears and nose). When the stomach produces too much acid then it is forced up the esophagus and down the intestines and will kill probiotics. (Antibiotics also kill probiotics.) When the probiotics are depleted then the acid is traveling right up next to the throat, esophagus and intestines with no protection. This can cause them to get raw, inflamed, painful, and even bleed sometimes.

We use 'Digestive Health' sold by Core Health Products. 'Digestive Health' contains 13 different strains of probiotics and over 20 types of digestive enzymes.

Thank you for this post. I had to buy the type you recommended online, but I found different types in the health food store to begin with. They seem to be helping. I still have some diet issues to work out - I'm having a hard time giving up my morning coffee, but I'm working on it all.

Wow... it is funny that I just read your post. I woke up with a bad bout of acid reflux and confused as to why it all of sudden happened again as it hadn't shown its ugly face for weeks ... after reading your post it made me realize that I had not taken my Core Health pills for the past two days. I guess you don't know how well something is working until you don't use them. Thanks@
