Enzymes are proteins that influence chemical reactions in the body. Enzymes are at work constantly within the body, affecting virtually every bodily function (breathing, vision, muscle growth and repair, etc.). Digestive enzymes function by changing your food into nutrients. Your body makes many different types of enzymes in different areas of the body, such as the mouth, stomach and small intestine. The main goal of digestive enzymes is to break down the complicated and large food particle into a simple, small molecule that can be absorbed and utilized in the body.

Each digestive enzyme serves a specific digestive function. For example, Amylase enzymes specifically break down various types of carbohydrates and Lipase breaks down fat. Many people find that their digestive issues can improve when taking a high quality, high potency digestive enzyme supplement. This is because the supplemental enzymes help the body break the foods down, reducing the putrification (or rotting) of undigested food in the digestive system. Undigested food in the digestive system can cause a number of digestive issues such as gas, bloating, heartburn, and even occasional constipation. Supplemental digestive enzymes are useful, especially when consuming processed or cooked foods, since these foods do not contain the naturally present enzymes like raw foods do. This is why we recommend digestive enzyme supplements with each meal.
