What are Digestive Enzymes?
Digestive enzymes are enzymes responsible for breaking down foods. They are produced by our bodies to help us digest the foods we eat. The enzymes are secreted by various parts of our digestive system and they help break down the major food groups such as: proteins, fats, carbohydrates, lactose and cellulose. Our bodies produce different digestive enzymes depending on the food group.
Digestive enzymes help to withstand the stress caused by sudden changes in food consumption patterns, exposure to environmental pollutants, extensive travel and unexpected changes in weather. They can also help in cases of enzyme insufficiency, caused by damage to the sites of enzyme production.
Digestive Enzymes – Types & Sources:
Neutral Protease – Digestive enzyme that breaks down protein. Sourced from Bacillus Subtilis.
Amylase – Digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrate and starch. Sourced from Aspergillus Oryzae.
Lipase – Digestive enzyme that breaks down fat. Sourced from Rhizopus Oryzae.
Lactase – Digestive enzyme that breaks down lactose-dairy. It improves lactose digestion in individuals who have difficulty digesting lactose (EU register on health & nutrition claim). Sourced from Aspergillus Oeyzae.
Cellulase – Digestive enzyme that breaks down cellulose. Sourced from Trichoderma Longibrachiatum (formerly known as Trichoderma Reesei).
