According to a 2015 survey (the most recent available statistics) 68 percent of American adults take dietary supplements, with older men and women taking the most. This reflects an important concern about health: people are realizing how essential it is to maintain high standards of physical and mental health as they mature and to prevent illness from occurring later in life.
Aging is a natural process but does not come without a price; it changes everything in your body: your organs, tissues and cells. It affects the functioning of all your body’s systems. Though these changes usually appear slowly and over a long period of time, you will gradually begin to notice that your body has to work harder to do the things that used to come easily. The good news is, you don’t have to wait to start noticing these changes before you do something about them. You can act now by adding dietary supplements to your daily regime.

One dietary supplement you can use to reduce your risk is the omega-3 essential fatty acids contained in DrFormulas Ultra Pure Omega-3 Fish Oil.
Lactose intolerance: If you have a lactose intolerance, it means your body lacks the digestive enzyme lactase, which breaks down lactose - the sugar in milk.

This is exactly what Digestive Enzymes Support is designed to do.
