Why We Need Digestive Enzymes

  • Enzymes are destroyed in cooking and processing foods
  • Natural enzymes in our bodies begin to decrease in the late 20s
  • Stress, medications, eating on the run, not fully chewing food can all affect our ability to digest properly
  • Some lack enzymes due to genetics, ethnicity, lifestyle, or trauma which leads to food intolerance
  • To support overall digestive health regardless of natural enzyme levels

Occasional gas and bloating are often the result of poor digestion. Although they bring a wealth of healthful benefits, the complex carbohydrates found in beans, certain vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and other fiber-rich foods such as seeds, contain a variety of resistant starches and related polysaccharides that are difficult for the body to break down.

Often the body does not produce the enzymes necessary to break these foods down into easily digestible carbohydrates. When not broken down, these foods begin to ferment, producing gas and bloating. †


Digestive Enzymes and Food Intolerance

In an ideal world, we would eat enough raw, unprocessed food to supply ample enzymes in addition to those that naturally occur in our bodies. Digestive Enzymes are required to break down all types of foods into small enough particles that our bodies can use. The reality is, our bodies only produce so many enzymes, which also need time to replenish in between meals.

beans and vegetables When enzyme production is reduced, or other factors prevent the ability to produce sufficient enzymes, our bodies suffer. Not only can temporary discomfort such as gas, indigestion, or bloating occur, but the lack of enzymes prevents our bodies from absorbing the necessary nutrients for overall health and wellness.

If enzyme deficiency isn’t offset with the help of digestive enzyme supplements, a variety of food intolerance symptoms can occur.

Food intolerance is simply the inability to fully digest, or break down, certain types of foods due to not having enough of a certain type of enzyme. Depending on your specific health history, your food intolerance may be permanent or temporary.

Otherwise known as a “digestive enzyme deficiency”, a permanent food intolerance means your body doesn’t have the normal levels of enzymes for digesting certain types of foods, with severity varying from person to person. You may find you need to remove certain foods all together, or simply keep your portions to a minimum in any given meal or period of time.

However, occasional intolerance may be due to the normal reduction of enzymes that occurs with age or other factors that temporarily affect digestion. Symptoms may vary from minor stomach upset after a meal containing the offensive foods, or ongoing symptoms due to the inability to pinpoint which foods are causing the problem.
