What are digestive enzymes?

Digestive enzymes are naturally occurring and help break down food so the body can absorb nutrients. The body produces digestive enzymes – some in your mouth, stomach and small intestine – but most are made in the pancreas. The pancreas delivers enzymes to the small intestine whenever food is eaten.

These enzymes are:

  • Proteases and peptidases, which break down proteins.
  • Lipase, which breaks down fats
  • Amylase, which breaks down carbohydrates
  Once the nutrients in food have been broken into molecules that are small enough, they are absorbed into the blood through the walls of the small intestine. The blood then carries these broken down molecules all around the body to different organs. There are times when the body doesn’t make enough digestive enzymes. And this has an impact on the digestive process. This leads to bloating and flatulence. There is more undigested matter in your colon and that matter reacts with bacteria to produce gas.

But failing to digest food properly has broader consequences.

You do not absorb all the nutrients available in your food and the body also has to work harder than it would otherwise to absorb the required nutrients. In effect, you are not getting enough fuel for your body, and your body is having to work harder than necessary to get any fuel it is getting. It is a digestive double whammy – not enough petrol going into an engine that is having to use more petrol than other engines. You do not have to be a GP to know that this is not desirable. It is why many people report big improvements in their energy levels and their skin and hair condition after starting taking digestive enzyme supplements. It is not just about how your tummy feels – it is about the whole you.
