Enzymes are certain types of proteins in the body, and they help many chemical reactions to happen. These chemical reactions are what is needed to break down chunks of food that you eat into soluble particles that are easy to digest. The human body produces various different enzymes, and they are made in the mouth, stomach, and intestine. Without them, we would not be able to breakdown food. However, although we have the enzymes to break down most of the foods, we don’t have the ones needed to breakdown cellulose, pectins, and resistant starches. Collectively these are called fiber.
In addition to people with IBS, Lactose Intolerance, Pancreatic Insufficiency, and those on high fiber diets, taking digestive enzyme supplements can promote overall health for the rest of us too. Since they can help with proper food breakdown, they are extremely beneficial. Food that is broken down to smaller particles will be easier absorbed, and faster to provide the body with energy. Additionally, if you have gas, bloating, or you see undigested food in your stool, you should consult your doctor and take some enzymatic supplements.
