Before our regularly scheduled message today, we pause to pray for the victims and families of the Texas plant explosion last Wednesday.  Eleven of the fourteen killed in the tragedy were reportedly local volunteer firefighters.
In particular, let’s all give thanks today for the courageous and selfless first responders in our communities.

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 NIV

The health of your digestive system, commonly referred to as “gut” health” is often a clear indicator of your overall health.  Digestion is the beautifully complex process of converting food into usable molecules for human function.  A key component of this intricate process are digestive enzymes.
 
Digestive enzymes are proteins used by the body to help digest foods and maximize the delivery of life-giving nutrients to the body.  Our bodies naturally produce many digestive enzymes and they are also housed in many of the natural foods we eat—particularly in abundance in fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.
 
The complexity and significant amounts of plant protein and plant superfoods found in LivingFuel superfoods require the combination of multiple enzymes to optimize digestion.   Each of the proteolytic enzymes in LivingFuel has a different and distinct ability to break the chemical bonds found in the proteins, aiding digestion and maximizing nutrient availability.
 
The digestive enzymes, along with live prebiotics and probiotics, assist your body with digesting and absorbing the powerful foods in LivingFuel and also contribute to your healthly, smooth functioning gut.
 
Each serving of LivingFuel SuperBerry UltimateSuperBerry Original and SuperGreens functional superfoods each contain 300 mg of the enzymes Protease 6.0, Protease 4.5, Protease 3.0, Peptidase, Alpha-Galactosidase, Cullulose, Hemicellulose and Pectinase in a proprietary complex that works harmoniously with the superfoods, herbs, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants in LivingFuel.
 
Enjoy your “Living fuel” today!

Spacing your three meals out more can actually have some additional beneficial effects on your blood sugar and on other aspects of your health. It takes about three hours for your body to digest a meal. If you eat every two or three hours, your body will constantly be in the process of digesting food, which nutritionists call the “fed state.” If, however, you don’t snack or eat again, you’ll go into the post-absorptive state or maximum metabolic mode after about three hours. Keep in mind that eating is one of the most taxing things we do to our bodies, and it is important to allow time for proper digestion, assimilation, and endocrine function.

Several beneficial actions happen in the post-absorptive state. First, you begin to tap into your body’s stored energy reserves to run your engine. How so? Your hormone levels adjust to shift your body out of fat-storage mode and into fat-burning mode. It also reduces free radical damage and inflammation, increases the production of antiaging hormones, and promotes tissue repair. Meanwhile, your metabolic rate remains unchanged.

If you need to snack, make sure you have a snack strategy and inventory on hand. Snacking on combinations of carbohydrates and proteins, including sports drinks, protein bars, bananas, etc., are often necessary during workouts and athletic events. Otherwise, it is best to learn to fuel yourself for five to six hours without snacking as discussed earlier in this chapter and within “The Dynamic Role of Proteins in Weight Loss” chapter.

The small and large intestines (gut) do most of the work involved in digesting the 20 tons of food that the average person consumes in a lifetime. This process involves trillions of bacteria — some of them harmful and others beneficial.

What you may not know: While the gut is most commonly associated with digestion, it’s estimated that at least 60% of a person’s immune system is located there. “Good” bacteria protect against the growth of harmful bacteria to help prevent infections, such as vaginal yeast infections and urinary tract infections.
