The consequences of a lack of enzymes
Without enzymes it would take years to digest a meal. Digestion takes approximately 4 hours, continues in the small intestine (3 to 6 hours), and then in the large intestine (12 to 24 hrs).
The consequences of a lack of enzymes can lead to digestive problems, fat deposits and obesity. Dr Edward Howell showed that a lack of enzymes not only causes digestive problems, but many chronic diseases – allergies, diabetes, inflammation – and premature aging.
