Social engagements, family gatherings, and holiday seasons, often display an abundance of opportunities for over-indulgence. If you are like me, trying to maintain healthy digestive function at these events can be challenging especially if the foods that are served are not necessarily the healthiest. But there is a way to keep our digestive system healthy despite all these food temptations. One of the easiest and most effective way is to supplement with digestive enzymes.
Our body naturally produces the digestive enzymes needed to break down the food we eat into basic nutrient components such as amino acids, fatty acids and simple sugars. Without digestive enzymes, the food will sit in the stomach, and we would not be able to extract nutrients and energy from it. While our body normally produces the digestive enzymes necessary to keep our digestive system in check, in some cases, we may be exposed to various factors that can adversely affect their production (illness, age, external factors, antibiotics, etc.).
Supplementing our diet with digestive enzymes may be the best and simple way to promote healthy digestion, especially under less-than-ideal situations. Keep in mind that although each digestive enzyme secreted by our gut and other organs have a specific role, they all contribute to keep a healthy and well-balanced digestive system. So, if you want to help maintain a healthy digestive function with the help of digestive enzymes supplementation, you must check the label and verify that the supplement your buy contains most of the crucial digestive enzymes scientifically known to have a positive impact on food digestion.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of essential digestive enzymes your dietary supplement should contain to have a positive health impact:
Alpha-Galactosidase, Amylase, Cellulase, Glucoamylase, Invertase, Hemicellulase, Lactase, Lipase, Peptidase, and Protease
