Digestive Enzymes

Many of our organs and glands secrete special compounds that help us digest our foods.  When we even look at food, hormone pathways start ramping up production of digestive enzymes in anticipation of digestion.

Digestive enzyme supplements are combinations of compounds that can support digestion of many different types of macronutrients including carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.  By using digestive enzymes within 30 minutes of eating, we supplement our body’s ability to break down foods.  For patients deficient in digestive enzymes for whatever reason, this can be extremely helpful.
