Digestive Enzymes (32 products)

 

Enzymes are important proteins in your cells. They are catalysts that help speed up every chemical reaction in your body. Without them, you would not be able to breathe, swallow, eat, or digest food.

 

Digestive enzyme supplements may help alleviate gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, indigestion, gas, irregularity, or heartburn. Poor enzyme production can be caused by aging and poor diet. When food is cooked at a temperature of 120 degrees or higher, it destroys virtually all the food's naturally occurring enzymes. If we eat when we are stress or preoccupied, we tend to eat quickly and gulp down our food leading to poor production of gastric juices and enzymes.

 

Some people naturally have an insufficiency in the production of certain digestive enzymes and as a result experience unpleasant side effects when digesting certain food groups. A digestive enzyme supplement taken with meals can effectively help prevent symptoms of indigestion.

 

The best digestive enzyme supplements will depend on the individual’s specific needs. Often a good quality digestive enzyme complex will include a combination of enzymes to help breakdown the different components of food such as protein, fats, carbohydrates and fibre, often combining digestive herbs to settle the stomach.
