There is a different type of enzyme that breaks down every different type of food. Without a predominantly raw diet, we are unable to get enzymes from food and our bodies do not produce enough on their own. Therefore, most people would certainly benefit from a comprehensive enzyme supplement.
Along with helping enhance your digestion, enzymes can also give relief from gas and bloating; due to proper carbohydrate digestion, increase energy, promote regularity and soothe digestive distress.
As mentioned above, different foods such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, sugars, and starches all have different enzymes to break them down, so when choosing an enzyme supplement it is important to choose one that covers all these bases.
When choosing a formula that would work best for you here are a few things to keep in mind:
Be sure you go with one that contains multiple enzymes, some of the most popular include: Amylase, Cellulase Invertase, Lactase, Lipase, Protease, Peptidase, Alpha-galactosidase, pectinase, and Beta-gucanase to name a few. This will aid in a proper breakdown of many different foods you consume on a daily basis without having to take many different supplements.
Cheapest isn’t always better, especially pertaining to supplements. Steer clear of grocery stores and drug stores as they tend to carry lower quality products.
Ensure the amounts per serving are listed beside each enzyme on the ingredient list, if you do not find numbers showing this it can often mean the product is not very potent.
Be mindful of the ingredient list, you want to see what is in the product you’re purchasing but you should also want to see what the product does not contain. If it is not mentioned that the product does not contain gluten, milk, or preservatives you should assume that it does.
It is also recommended that adults take a high quality plant based digestive enzyme with each meal throughout the day. Once you have found a product and a serving size that works best for you, you should definitely notice a great difference in your digestion, regularity, and health in general.
