The Role of Enzymes in Nutrition – How to Avoid Digestive Issues

What are Enzymes?

The digestive system breaks down ingested food into macro and micronutrients, which can then be absorbed by the body. This process requires a sufficient amount of digestive enzymes. Some enzymes break down proteins, while others break down carbohydrates or fats.

Although digestion begins in the mouth, if the digestive system produces insufficient amounts of certain enzymes, the body cannot fully break down the specific nutrients, leading them to enter the colon undigested and causing a range of unpleasant symptoms.

The Role of Digestive Enzymes

Most digestive enzymes are produced in the pancreas: amylase breaks down starch, lipase breaks down fats, and protease breaks down animal proteins. Among the enzymes found in the first section of the small intestine, lactase breaks down lactose found in dairy products, while others break down disaccharides into simple sugars that can be absorbed into the bloodstream from the intestines.

Symptoms of Enzyme Deficiency

If the digestive organs lack enzymes, nutrients enter the colon almost undigested, preventing proper absorption by the body and easily becoming a breeding ground for bacteria. Bloating, abdominal cramps, strong abdominal tension after meals, and increased gas production are the first signs of trouble, but constipation or diarrhea can also occur as symptoms. Some enzymes enter the body through the consumption of raw vegetables and fruits, but there are enzymes, such as cellulase needed for fiber breakdown, that the human body does not produce. Therefore, high-fiber foods can cause issues if not chewed thoroughly, which activates the enzyme.

Digestive enzymes can be well supplemented with dietary supplements. However, it is very important to use high-quality, natural supplements that are well absorbed by our body. We have a specific solution for this, made from natural ingredients in a fermented form, with maximum effect and absorption.
