Foods that contain natural digestive enzymes.
• Avocados Kefir
Digestive enzymes are necessary to break down fats, proteins and carbs for easy absorption.
There are three main types of digestive enzymes:
• Proteases: Break down protein into small peptides and amino acids
• Lipase: Break down fat into three fatty acids plus a glycerol molecule
• Amylase: Break down carbs like starch into simple sugars
Enzymes are also made in the small intestine, including lactase, maltase and sucrase. If the body cannot produce enough digestive enzymes, if foods and fats cannot be digested properly that will lead to malabsorption. This can also lead to lactose intolerance. Foods with high natural digestive enzymes can be recommended to improve digestion.

Prostrate - Saw Palmetto 4 capsules per day I tried many brand and Spring Valley Brand bought from Walmart so far works. I started as recommended in the bottle 4 capsules a day. I stopped and went to Urologist as suggested by my Primary Doctor and got prescribed with Tamsulosin (Flomax), no co-pay but not too much success, I started taking Saw Palmwto again and I dropped the Saw Palmetto to 2 per day and now works for me; no problem with the flow.
Bladder- Over Active Bladder - 6 capsules a day Dr. Tobias' Kidney/Bladder supplements. I did the recommneded dose for 2 months then reduced to 3 capsules per day. After a year I only take 2 capsules a day. I tried to stop taking it but the problem reoccured. I do not understand why it became a maintenance for me. I may try the 1 capsule a day soon. Supplements are expensive and not covered by my health insurance.
Malabsorption- My body cannot absorbe nutrients and after I have been diagnosed with malabsorption and started monitorinng my bowel movement and noticed that my body cannot absorbed fats. The free samples of creon has been consumed and looks like it works, so I asked for a prescription from the doctors office, I recieved a phone call from the Pharmacist and told me if I want them to continue to fill the prescription that will cost me a co-pay of $800; the total cost of the prescription was almost $7000.00 and the insurance will pay $6000.00 and of course I said no and started looking for alternative and blessedly found the pearl like tablets (Earth Pearl- Pro and Prebiotic) I took 3 a day as I reach to fully consumed the whole bottle in less than a month; the wonder begins I do not go to restroom in a hurry and as often as I did before, due to financial restrain I looked for alternative brand and found a Probiotic-Prebiotic with 40 Billion CFU and it works too. I will try again the Earth's Pearl and this time just one tablet a day as also recommended. I prefer the Earth's Pearl because of easy swallowing and since it is really so small, I do not think there are rooms for fillers.
