Deficiencies in key nutritional elements are an increasingly problematic epidemic today. This is the reason I offer FREE zinc deficiency testing! I always say “if you are deficient in zinc, you are deficient in everything!”. This is so because zinc plays a big role in the production of enzymes within the body. Schedule a time to get tested:
Minerals are catalysts for all enzymatic production within the body. One simple example of how this may affect you, and certainly a handful of those whom you know of; B6 conversion relies on zinc. B6 is needed for adequate tryptophan (an amino acid essential for sleep, healthy moods, appetite control and much more).
Look at the foods that are listed as the highest in zinc: nuts and seeds, eggs, greens. Some of which are the most difficult to digest. Supplement with trace elements (and from a young age if possible for preventative measures), heal the get and keep it well!
One Solution… A Product that is Most Efficient in Healing the Gut:
Malabsorption issues/nutrient deficiencies, colitis, diverticulosis, irritable bowl, constipation (non-related to hypothyroid) ulcers, and cognitive function are all related to toxic bowl syndrome. In comparing the use of clay and herbal preparations, I find it more effective for the purpose of detoxification, elimination, and cleansing the GI tract to gain the above three faucets. In my opinion is far superior to cleanse the walls of the gut (re-condition) and repair the lining, thus enhance nutrient absorption than it is to use clay and herbal concoctions. Clay is thought to promote elimination by providing “bulk” to stools by means of an insoluble fiber, it is used to absorb heavy metals and toxins, and thereby have a “cleansing” effect. There are three problems I see with this. One is the fact that a poorly hydrated or already constipated individual may become more constipated by clays. Secondly, clay will absorb the good with the bad. Essential nutrients and electrolytes are absorbed as well! This may lead to a deficiency. Additionally, clay will absorbs, thus decrease the action of medications. And thirdly, the benefits as I seem the in light of the possible side effects/contradictions diminish the benefits of clay. I believe there are better ways to eliminate toxic metals in lieu of clay.
Okra Pepsin E3 is the multi-purpose, or double action product for healing the gut, cleansing it, or to enhance absorption of nutrients!

Do to the nature of healing the gut, this product may cause seemingly “un-related changes” in mood, emotions, and cognitive function. The gut is referred to as “the second brain”. Science now knows that 90% of a “neurotransmitter” (previously thought to only be produced in the nervous system/brain), serotonin is actually produced in the gut!
