Feeling bloated or lethargic after eating? It’s possible that you have deficiencies in enzymes or probiotics, both of which support a healthy digestive system. Enzymes are produced naturally by the salivary glands but production slows down as you get older.
Probiotics (best known as “good bacteria” in yoghurts) keep harmful bacteria in check; you inherit the culture from your mother. However, they can become depleted, particularly if you take a course of antibiotics or if you have a poor diet.
