Join me as we find out:

  • How does the digestion process work?
  • If cooking breaks down important enzymes, what solutions are there?
  • Are dishes with complex ingredients more challenging for the body to digest?
  • Is their enzyme formula for everyone?
  • When is the best time to take probiotics?


Also, Wade and Matt will tell us about:

  • The five stages to digestion.
  • The importance of enzymes.
  • The importance of focused eating.
  • How many probiotics miss their mark.


It was a pleasure to have Wade and Matt on the podcast to share their wisdom and knowledge:

“Enzymes are like cutting the grass, and probiotics are like mulching the grass.”

“You're not what you eat - you are what you are able to digest, absorb and utilise.”

“Health shouldn’t be about restriction - it should be about increasing your actions, not lessening!”
