Simply put, digestive enzymes are proteins that break down our foods into minute pieces to allow then to enter our bloodstream and be carried around our body. Although, you may follow a healthy diet, it’s possible that the nutrients you are taking in are not providing you with any goodness. This particularly applies to people who have IBS, Crohn’s, coeliac disease, leaky gut or food allergies/intolerances. This inability to absorb the nutrients present in our food can cause long term health problems, this is where taking digestive enzymes can really help.
Different Types of Digestive Enzymes
Our bodies produce digestive enzymes in various organs such as the stomach, liver, small intestine, the pancreas and salivary glands. Different enzymes break down different foods. For example, lactase breaks down lactose which is a sugar found in milk and dairy products.
The results of some studies have shown that people with an intolerance to dairy products found they could tolerate the foods after taking the digestive enzymes lactase. Many digestive enzyme supplements contain a blend of enzymes such as Amylase (an enzymes which breaks down carbs), Lipase (helps break down fats), Lactase, protease (breaks down proteins) and more.
