Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes are naturally occurring protein catalysts which support the chemical breakdown of food into smaller molecules, making them easier to absorb in the small intestine.


The pancreas creates the largest amount of enzymes which it releases into the small intestine, however enzymes are created and released throughout the digestive system starting in the mouth with salivary amylase.


Without the proper function of digestive enzymes, we are unable to effectively digest (and therefore absorb) our food. This puts extra strain on the small intestine, can lead to potential nutrient insufficiencies, food intolerances and bacterial overgrowth. A common example is a lack of the enzyme lactase which can lead to an intolerance to lactose in milk.


Symptoms of poor digestive enzyme function include, gas, bloating and abdominal discomfort.


If someone suffers with impaired pancreatic or digestive function, or struggles to digest certain foods, supplemental digestive enzymes can help to support and alleviate the pressure from the rest of the digestive system. They are taken right at the beginning of a meal, working in the same way as the bodies natural digestive enzymes.


There are also certain foods which are naturally rich in digestive enzymes including: pineapple (bromelain), papayas (papain), kefir and sauerkraut.
