What Are Digestive Enzymes
Giving your body digestive enzymes to help aid digestion is like hiring more workers for an extremely large task. The more workers you have, the better executed the task will be. Digestive enzymes help fight to keep your gut healthy. They are the key substances of the digestive process, working to break down our food for proper absorption. The four primary digestive enzymes are:
- Lipase enzymes that help digest and assimilate fats.
- Protease/Peptidase enzymes that break down proteins.
- Amylase enzymes that break down carbohydrates or starch.
- Cellulase enzymes that break down cellulose molecules into simple sugars.
