Digestive Enzymes for Stomach Health & Comfort

Optimize Digestion, Nutrient Uptake & Comfort After Meals

Digestive enzymes are some of the best digestive supplements we offer. These enzymes help break down ingested foods, creating nutrients the body needs. Digestive enzymes promote optimal digestion, so we get the most out of what we eat. And by encouraging healthy digestion, they make meals more comfortable, too.

4 Reasons Why Everyone Should Take Digestive Enzymes

  • Breaks down dietary macronutrients, optimizing nutrition
  • Aids digestion of foods containing fats, protein, cellulose & more
  • Relieves digestive discomfort following large meals
  • Augments probiotic & prebiotic digestive health regimens

What are digestive enzymes?

Digestive enzymes naturally occur in your body and play a vital role in maintaining your digestive health. Your digestion system, in tandem with digestive enzymes, helps break down food and absorb the nutrients you need from food so you can feel you best.

Age, lifestyle and diet are all factors that can deplete the number of digestive enzymes you have. Fortunately, digestive enzyme supplements can help keep your levels youthful.

Are digestive enzymes good for you?

Without the help from your body's natural digestive enzymes, the food you eat would not be able to be broken down and absorbed by the body and bloodstream. This is an especially critical stage in digestion; the nutrients in food (protein, carbohydrates and fats) need to be properly broken down and distributed throughout the body to keep you healthy from head to toe.

If your ability to produce digestive enzymes has diminished—which is normal with age—incorporating digestive enzyme supplements into your wellness routine will help promote optimal digestion. A high quality supplement will help your body break down macronutrients and optimize nutrition; digestive enzyme supplements can also help relieve discomfort after eating a large meal.

What to expect when taking digestive enzymes?

Incorporating digestive enzyme supplements may make a difference before, during and after you eat. You might find that you will digest your food better and could feel more comfortable after meals. A boost in your energy levels isn't uncommon, either, since you may be absorbing more nutrients from your food.

Can you take digestive enzymes with probiotics?

Digestive enzymes and probiotics are both helpful when it comes to digesting your food. You may take a digestive enzyme supplement and probiotic together, and you will find some "combo" supplement formulas. Whether you're taking digestive enzymes or probiotics, or both, make sure to follow the dosage guide and not to take more than directed—and if you have any questions, your doctor is your best resource.
