Our body gets the nutrients (vitamins, minerals), energy and water it needs to function from the outside world (in the form of food and drink). Our body tries to break down the nutrients it gets into its constituent parts, and digestive enzymes play a role in this. Many people experience digestive difficulties after consuming a variety of certain nutrients. To avoid this, it is a good idea to take the enzyme or enzyme mixtures in supplement form before meals.

Inadequate digestion can cause bloating, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, malaise, stomach discomfort and similar discomforts. To prevent this, if you experience it often, it is worth identifying which foods cause these symptoms and taking a complex digestive supplement before eating them. These contain a wide variety of enzymes. The ingredients are.

 

Protein-degrading enzymes (proteases):

  • Pepsin: the "main" protein-degrading enzyme is activated by the strong pH of stomach acid
  • Papain: obtained from papaya fruit
  • Bromelain: obtained from pineapple

 

Carbohydrate-degrading enzymes (carbohydrases):

  • Amylase: breaks down starch
  • Cellulase: breaks down cellulose, the most abundant complex carbohydrate
  • Lactase: breaks down lactose
  • Beta glucosidase: breaks down the fiber found in oatmeal
  • Alpha galactosidase: an enzyme that breaks down sugar, in its absence it causes Fábry's disease
  • Xylanase: responsible for the breakdown of plant cell walls, important in the breakdown of vegetables and fruits

 

Digestive enzyme mixtures contain enzymes (lipases) that break down fats:

In addition, we offer a special lactase enzyme for lactose intolerant people, which should be consumed before a meal containing lactose.
