Q. Dear Judy, I’m 60 years old and get bloating and gas after meals. I’m also allergic to a few foods. What do you suggest I do? —Jonathan
A. Almost everyone over the age of 40 and certainly anyone in their 50s or older should be taking a broad spectrum digestive enzyme formula with meals. As we age, our bodies simply do not produce the level of digestive enzymes we need to fully digest food. Partially digested food can pass through our system and cause a host of problems such as bloating, belching, cramps, gas and even food allergies. I recommend Lindberg Complete Digestant to anyone over age 40.
Take 2 capsules with water after each meal up to 3 times daily.
