.Another thing to consider is that the
absorptive capacity of thebowel may be decreased with age
, and this along with adecrease in the natural production of hydrochloric acid andpancreatic enzymes can result in nutritional deficiencies becausethe body is no longer properly breaking down and absorbingnutrients from the foods we eat.

, meaning that the nutrients are able to get into the cells asneeded and increase cell metabolism.
