Digestive Enzymes

We eat food, but our digestive system doesn’t absorb food, it absorbs nutrients. Food has to be broken down from things like steak and broccoli into its nutrient pieces: amino acids (from proteins), fatty acids and cholesterol (from fats), and simple sugars (from carbohydrates), as well as vitamins, minerals, and a variety of other plant and animal compounds. Digestive enzymes, primarily produced* in the pancreas and small intestine, break down our food into nutrients so that our bodies can absorb them.

*They’re also made in saliva glands and stomach, but we’re not going to focus on those here.

If we don’t have enough digestive enzymes, we can’t break down our food—which means even though we’re eating well, we aren’t absorbing all that good nutrition.

suitble for people who :
-Gas and bloating after meals
-The sensation that you have food sitting in your stomach (a rock in your gut)
-Feeling full after eating a few bites of food
-Undigested food in your stool
-Floating stools (an occasional floating piece is fine, but if all your poop consistently floats, -that might be a sign something is wrong)
-An “oil slick” in the toilet bowl (undigested fat)
