Did you know that researchers believe 90% of all diseases begin in the digestive tract due to improper digestion, absorption, and assimilation of nutrients? Our supplement can help. For disorders and diseases of the digestive tract to recover, the immune system must be able to properly digest, absorb, and assimilate nutrients. Without proper absorption of essential nutrients, the immune system is unable to ward off potential diseases or battle against existing conditions.
The key to a healthy digestive system and a healthy immune system is the oral ingestion of A.M.P. FLORACEL®.
