Enzyme supplements promote the digestion of proteins, fats, and carbs and support digestive system health.
Enzymes are proteins that aid with chemical reactions in our bodies. Enzymes are essential to many vital processes, including digestion, liver function, and muscle growth. The pancreas, stomach, and small intestines make enzymes from amino acids. Enzyme insufficiency may be caused by genetics, disease, poor diet, and age. Foods high in digestive enzymes include apples, pineapples, papayas, mangoes, bananas, avocados, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, kiwi, and ginger.
Enzyme supplements are formulated to support a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet, regular exercise, and plenty of water and rest.
