Registered pharmacist, and nutritionist Ben Fuchs shared alternative health concepts, and offered tips on supplements and healthy changes to one's diet and lifestyle. As people get older, they should think of themselves like "bodybuilders," he noted, doing resistance training with weights, yoga, or exercise bands. When you're done with your workout, that's the best time to take your nutritional supplements, he added. As an inexpensive treatment for acid reflex or GERD, he suggested taking a teaspoon of baking soda (mixed in water) a couple of hours after a meal-- it also helps to observe which foods seem to disagree with your system, and eliminate them.
Digestive enzymes have some added benefits beyond food absorption, Fuchs reported. They assist in strengthening and supporting the immune system, have anti-inflammatory properties and can break down clots or clogs. It's best to take the enzymes on an empty stomach along with apple cider vinegar, he continued, adding that the vinegar is also helpful for weight loss, diabetes, and blood sugar.
