Natural Digestive Enzymes

Why are Natural Digestive Enzymes Important?

If you believe that all your digestion takes place in the stomach, you’re wrong. The entire gut which includes the mouth, stomach, small intestine and large intestine along with their natural digestive enzymes aid in the process of digestion. 

These natural digestive enzymes include proteases which digest proteins, amylase which digests carbohydrates and lipases which digests lipids. 

But what happens when we don’t produce enough of our digestive enzymes, or we’re battling inflammatory diseases, gastrointestinal infections or have a dietary intolerance. 

The natural digestive enzymes in our body are affected by them, and sometimes bacterial overgrowth can change their functions. 

Studies have shown that individuals who secrete less pancreatic enzymes or those with pancreatic diseases tend to have significant bacterial overgrowth thereby affecting digestion and have all the accompanying symptoms of bloat, nausea, flatulence and gastric discomfort. 

Therefore replacing natural digestive enzymes is essential. Digesta Alpha has created several combinations of proteins for people with various needs. 

For those with lactose intolerance, they can supply the missing lactase and alpha-galactosidase enzyme. For others who haven’t been able to identify their enzyme deficiency, a multi-enzyme combination can make a difference. 

If you’re still not convinced here’s a list of reasons why natural digestive enzymes are important:

They digest proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Without these enzymes, you wouldn’t be able to digest and process your food.  They help the ph balance of the gut. Without these natural digestive enzymes, the ph of the intestine tends to become very acidic rendering the digestive process inactive.  They prevent bacterial overgrowth. Digestive enzymes keep the gut bacteria in check. 

They eliminate toxins. Not only do digestive enzymes process food for nutrients, but it also filters all our food and helps clear the toxic waste from our food.  They also help keep food moving in the gut with the brush border epithelium. A lack of enzymes will paralyze the gut leaving the food undigested and stationary in the stomach.  They provide nutrients necessary for all your body functions. Once your food is digested and processed, the nutrients are all redistributed according to the needs of the body with first preference to major organs like the brain and the heart. 

Supplementing your natural enzymes can shorten the time your body takes to secret the enzymes and then start the digestion process. It’s also the primary reason, why it is recommended to take your digestive enzyme supplements with food to mimic the cyclical release of natural digestive enzymes by the body. Consider it as a jump start to your digestive process. 

If you have a dietary intolerance or periodic flatulence and bloating or if you’ve recovered from gastric illness/ surgery, you may want to consider taking Digest Alpha supplements. 

Digest Alpha’s natural digestive enzyme supplements are 100% vegan and gluten-free. Each veggie capsule contains lactase and alpha-galactosidase, two important enzymes missing in individuals who suffer from lactose intolerance.
