If you routinely consume foods made from grains, beans, nuts, seeds, or soy, you may unknowingly be ingesting large amounts of phytate; an anti-nutrient that pulls zinc, iron, calcium and magnesium out of your body.  

For anyone struggling with digestion, energy, sleep or micronutrient deficiencies like iron deficiency anemia, consider giving Access Nutrients a try. 

This digestive enzyme will break down the phytate in your food, and give your body access to the micronutrients otherwise locked up and unavailable to you.  They’ve already had incredible success with elite athletes struggling with iron absorption and energy.
