Digestive enzymes are proteins that break down complex food components into simpler substances, which are then absorbed by the body.
Each enzyme, like a key, opens only its own lock:
These digestive enzymes are usually contained in complex supplements in various proportions and amounts. The picture shows the digestive enzymes most often used in circuits. Usually they are used in the correction of various disorders in the gastrointestinal tract (for diseases of the stomach, pathologies of the liver and biliary tract, inflammatory diseases of the pancreas, etc.) and not only.
In the vast majority of cases, the reason for the lack of enzymes for digestion is overeating and an unbalanced diet. The lack of enzymes is felt even at the physical level: you may be disturbed by heaviness in the abdomen, bloating, flatulence and belching (https://helenkornilova.com/scheme/vzdutie-zhivota-otryzhka/), unpleasant taste in the mouth, nausea, copious loose stools and etc.
️ Supplements containing enzymes of plant origin, such as Digest or Digest Basic, can be taken for a long time if necessary, unlike complexes that contain enzymes of animal origin (bovine / pig bile, pancreatin).
protease contained in gastric juice promotes the absorption of protein.
lactase is necessary for the digestion of dairy products;
lipase helps in the absorption of fats;
maltase - breaks down maltose (malt sugar) into glucose molecules, present in saliva and pancreatic secretions;
amylase contained in saliva breaks down starches and carbohydrates;
