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.

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.


Why do we need digestive enzymes?

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.

If you are concerned about the state of your digestive system, turning to natural sources for a solution can help you with your symptoms. Both digestive hydrochloric acid and enzyme supplements may be of assistance to help maintain optimal digestion.

  • I didn't notice any difference whatsoever.

    star

    I was taking 3-4 capsules to start with, then reduced to 2 before meals; there was no change in my bowel habits at all.

    Another great product from Lifestream. Used these for sometime now, even the next morning well after eating they made a difference.

  • Great Product

    star

    I have always had issues digesting food and would always feel bloated and uncomfortable after a meal or snack. I have been taking these digestive enzymes for just over a month now and can definitely feel the difference when I have remembered to take them with my food. The hardest part is remembering to take one or to take the bottle with me if I go out, still working on that and I do pay for it if I don't take one. But overall a great product and I would definitely consider purchasing more when I run out
