Enzymes are globular proteins that control biological reactions. Digestive enzymes speed up the breakdown (hydrolysis) of food molecules into their ‘building block’ components. These reactions occur outside of the cells lining the gut. Digestive enzymes all belong to the hydrolase class, and their action is one of splitting up large food molecules into their ‘building block’ components. Another unique property is that they are extracellular enzymes that mix with food as it passes through the gut. The majority of other enzymes function within the cytoplasm of the cell.
Digestive enzymes digest our foods and then send the nourishing ingredients to the bloodstream to feed the organs, glands, cells and tissues as well as the brain. Many scientists believe that most “lifestyle” and degenerative diseases, and even aging itself, are simply the lack of a continued and adequate supply of the necessary nutrients required to keep all of the body’s systems working properly.
You may be eating healthy, but if your digestive enzymes aren’t getting those nutrients to your bloodstream, organs and cells, then you aren’t receiving all the benefits of that healthy diet. And those nutrients are what keep all of your systems, particularly your immune system, strong and healthy.
The chemical digestion of food is dependent on a whole range of hydrolase enzymes produced by the cells lining the gut as well as associated organs such as the pancreas. The end goal is to break large food molecules into very much smaller ‘building block’ units. These can then be readily and rapidly absorbed through the gut wall and into the bloodstream for transport to the liver and from there to other parts of the body.
Most people that take digestive enzyme products are usually looking for help with occasional digestive issues – gas, bloating, GERD, reflux, heartburn, irregularity, etc. When foods are not properly digested by your body’s own enzymes and enter the small intestine, this may irritate our digestive tract and allow undigested food or waste to enter the bloodstream. Now our bloodstream has to work to clean up these undigested particles! When you take a blend of digestive enzymes (protease, lipase, amylase, lactase, cellulose, etc.) in the form of supplements with a meal, these digestive enzymes work to help support complete digestion and help prevent undigested foods and waste from ending up where they shouldn’t.
Digest Ease – Digestive Enzyme
DIGESTION SUPPORT – This extra strength blend of lactase, lipase, and bromelain aid the break down of sugars, dairy, and fats. It’s the perfect dietary supplement to help support your digestive system. Especially helpful for those without a gallbladder or a sluggish gallbladder
EASES ELIMINATION & CONSTIPATION. When your body has the right amount of enzymes your food is broken down fully, all vitamins and minerals absorbed, and the waste is easily eliminated.
PROTEIN BREAKDOWN – Nature’s Nutrition Digestive Enzymes contain both Bromelain and Papain to aid the digestion of proteins. These ingredients support the break down of proteins into smaller amino acids for your body to digest.
DIGESTIVE ENZYMES – Digest Ease Enzymes contain a blend of prebiotics and probiotics to support digestion.
