What is Digestive Enzymes
Digestive enzymes are protein chains naturally produced in the body and secreted by the mouth, stomach, and pancreas. These are catalysts necessary for activating and accelerating chemical reactions that break down food in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Taking a digestive enzyme supplement may help you get the most nutrition out of your food for optimal well-being!
Benefits of Digestive Enzymes
- Vegetarian/vegan formula
- Promotes optimal digestive function and reduces unpleasant digestive symptoms
- Increases the bioavailability of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and simple sugars
- Reduces food intolerance symptoms
- Enhances amino acid availability for muscle protein synthesis
- Lowers inflammation and pain in the body
How it Works
Digestive enzymes break down your food and optimize nutrient assimilation for good health. They target specific macromolecules – protein, carbohydrates, fats, or fiber – digesting them down into small, absorbable molecules that can enter your bloodstream. These enzymes increase the bioavailability of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and simple sugars which help your body to produce energy efficiently and feel your best!
Unfortunately, digestive enzyme levels decline with age, a diet high in processed food, stress, low stomach acid, digestive conditions, pancreatic disease, and the use of certain medications. Signs of insufficient enzyme production may include passing undigested food, gas, bloating, frequent diarrhea, acid reflux, nutritional deficiencies, fatigue, dull skin and hair, and low mood.
Taking a comprehensive digestive enzyme supplement with meals may reduce unpleasant digestive symptoms. For example, research shows supplementing with the enzymes lactase and beta-galactosidase can reduce digestive symptoms caused by an intolerance to lactose from dairy products.
Digestive enzymes support the breakdown of dietary protein into the amino acid building blocks needed for optimal lean muscle growth or muscle protein synthesis (MPS). Additionally, when taken away from meals, research suggests certain enzymes may reduce inflammation in the body.
