Taking a digestive enzyme with meals will help you get the best benefit from your diet. Not only will you not suffer from symptoms of indigestion, you will actually be absorbing more nutrients from the foods you eat. People report having more energy, fewer aches and pains and an overall healthier feeling once they begin supplementing with enzymes. Renew Life offers two complete digestive enzyme formulas.
DigestMORE is the ideal enzyme formula for everyday use. Each capsule of DigestMORE has 9 different enzymes along with a healing formula. These additional healing factors such as l-glutamine and marshmallow work to soothe and protect the digestive tract. It is ideal for people who have difficulty digesting large meals, or suffer gas and bloating after certain types of food (such as protein) or combining carbohydrates and protein together. It is also beneficial to those with inflammatory bowel disease.
“Around 40 per cent of people have at least one digestive symptom at any one time” - Dr Anton Emmanuel, consultant gastroenterologist at University College Hospital in London.
What Are Digestive Enzymes?
Most adults suffer from some sort of digestive complaint such as upset stomach, bloating, gas or heartburn at some point. What many people fail to realize is that these digestive problems can be due to a lack of digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes are found in the mouth (saliva), stomach (gastric juice), and intestines (pancreatic juice, intestinal juice, and intestinal mucosa); and change starches, proteins, fats and sugars into substances the body can digest. During digestion food is broken down into molecular components by specific enzymes. Carbohydrates (starches) are broken down by the enzyme amylase into maltose, glucose and fructose. Proteins are broken down into individual amino acids by enzymes called protease and fats are broken down into glycerol and fatty acids by the enzyme lipase. There are some digestive enzymes that the human body cannot produce but when taken orally, can be very helpful. These include; cellulase which breaks down plant fibre (cellulose), invertase which breaks down refined sugars, and pectinase which breaks down phytates. It is very important that phytates and phytic acid are broken down (phytic acid is found in seeds, legumes and grains). If not, they can bind with calcium, magnesium and zinc in the intestine, blocking the absorption of these important minerals.
Will Taking Enzymes Stop The Body From Producing Its Own?
It is a common misconception that by taking supplemental digestive enzymes, your body will stop producing them. This is not the case. Just as your body adapts to the different types of foods you eat, taking digestive enzymes relieves the body from the burden of having to produce extra digestive enzymes. By supplementing enzymes the body does not have to produce as many itself and can then allot more energy to making metabolic enzymes for functions such as cell repair.
What Are The Signs Of Enzyme Deficiency?
Most digestive complaints can be greatly alleviated by the use of digestive enzymes with meals. If you are bothered by the following symptoms after eating, enzyme deficiency could be the problem.
• Gas and bloating
• Diarrhoea or constipation
• Undigested food in stool
• Delayed stomach emptying
• Flatulence and foul smelling gas
• Declining energy
• Increased allergies to food
What Causes Enzyme Deficiency?
Digestion begins when we see or smell food. This causes us to salivate which starts to release digestive enzymes. Many people do not produce enough
enzymes due to the following reasons: Poor dietary choices: The body needs enough vitamins, minerals and electrolytes to produce necessary enzymes. Age: We produce fewer enzymes with age. Over-heating foods: Enzymes naturally occurring in food are destroyed when heated above 47°C (118°F). Fluoridated water: Drinking fluoridated water paralyzes enzymes. Body imbalances: Conditions such as pancreatitis, lack of a gall bladder and pH imbalance will inactivate or
deplete enzymes. Medications: Certain medications can destroy enzymes or diminish the body’s ability to produce them.
