What Are Digestive Enzymes?

Digestion is the chemical processes of reducing food from it's larger constituents to smaller and smaller molecules. Digestive enzymes speed up the chemical reactions, making it possible for food to be digested and absorbed. Each type of food we eat (protein, fats, and carbohydrates) need a different digestive enzyme to break it down.

Why Are Plant Based Digestive Enzymes Are Best?

Plant based digestive enzymes work no matter what your stomach pH is. Stomach pH is determined by how much hydrochloric acid your stomach produces. Animal based digestive enzymes only work if your stomach pH drops very low so if you experience hypochlorhydria, may never benefit from animal based digestive enzymes. Hypochlorhydria is a lack of hydrochloric acid in the gastric juices. If you take a acid blocker (like Prilosec, cimetidine (Tagamet), etc) you have a lack of hydrochloric acid in your gastric juices. Also, as we age, we naturally produce less hydrochloric acid. Look for a comprehensive, plant based, digestive enzyme.

Why Should I Supplement With Plant Based Digestive Enzymes?

Raw food has intact enzymes that assist in the digestion of that food group. However, cooking destroys those enzymes. Also natural enzyme production diminishes with age. So it stands to reason that either aging, eating little raw foods or low hydrochloric acid production leads to a failure to completely digest foods and incomplete assimilation of nutrients.

Who Should Supplement With Plant Based Digestive Enzymes?

  • Anyone who experienced gas or bloating after meals.
  • Those who are lactose intolerant. Inherited lactose deficiency is found in many ethnic groups (up to 10% of American Caucasians, and in 60
