Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes are catalytic function proteins that allow digestion, ie decomposition of different food components into simpler building blocks. Digestive enzymes help break down protein, carbohydrates and fats from foods and beverages we consume every day and can have a big effect on how a digestive system works.

Why do we need digestive enzymes?

When our digestive system is operating in peak condition, we are able to efficiently assimilate important minerals, vitamins, proteins and other nutrients. Together, digestive enzymes work with the larger components of the human digestive system to ensure the body can make use of each nutrient. You may experience a range of symptoms such as constipation, bloating, cramping, flatulence and more If you have an enzyme deficiency.

If you are concerned about the state of your digestive system, turning to natural sources for a solution can help you with your symptoms.

Digestive Enzymes Info

You are not what you eat, you are what you assimilate! So, digestive system plays a most significant role in maintaining a healthy body. By efficiently breaking down food with digestive juices and enzymes, nutrient absorption is optimised so your body is provided with critical nutrition for:

  • energy
  • tissue maintenance and repair
  • cognitive function
  • basically every other process in your body

If you suffer from increased gas, bloating or digestive discomfort, you may be experiencing the results of a digestive insufficiency.

Your digestive system produces approximately 7 litres of digestive fluids every day. Included in these are the hydrochloric acid and enzymes, essential for breaking food down into its micro-components: amino acids, sugars, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. These are the building blocks of your body and they are also essential to body function. Low gastric acid and digestive enzyme levels could be caused by strenuous exercise, stress, an illness, nutritional deficiencies or by the ageing process.

Digestive hydrochloric acid and enzyme supplements may be of assistance to help maintain optimal digestion.

For optimal digestive health, please see our selection of all natural health supplements.

  • Success at last!

    star

    Digest Dairy has been by far the most successful of various products I have tried over the years, in order to be able to indulge in cheese, which I love. I am still experimenting as to when is the best time to take them, so was interested to read the comment from Gay below.
    For me, eating cheese, yoghurt etc results in feeling slightly ill immediately afterwards, and then an unpleasant 'undigested' taste in my mouth for 3 or 4 days. One tablet immediately after eating helps me hugely, and I am delighted to have discovered them, thanks to the excellent website of Health Post.
    I would love to hear about the symptoms and methods of gaining relief from other dairy intolerant people.
