Digestive Enzymes 

Insufficient amounts of digestive enzymes can cause or worsen abnormal digestive conditions, such as maldigestion, food allergies and sensitivities, intestinal fermentation, putrefaction, and intestinal hyperpermeability (or “leaky gut”). Primary symptoms associated with weakened digestion include:

-      Indigestion
-      Prolonged feeling of fullness
-      Bloating
-      Gas
-      Abdominal cramps
-      Difficulty gaining weight
-      Constipation (often related to roughage and fiber)
-      Diarrhea
-      Undigested food in the stool

The use of digestive enzyme supplements to assist in the proper breakdown and assimilation of nutrients from food has been extensively studied and reviewed. Specifically, research using microbial-sourced enzymes supports their use to aid in healthy digestion.

Supplementation of microbial lipase has been studied in a number of applications and shown to be beneficial. Lipase supplementation can reduce fecal fat content and total stool volume, and was found to be more effective at lower concentrations when compared to animal-sourced lipase.3

Protein digestion is an important consideration when assessing effectiveness of reducing allergy and leaky gut symptoms. Enzymes taken orally at meals may improve the digestion of dietary protein and, as a result, decrease the amount of antigenic protein particles leaking into circulation.

Additionally, protease enzymes from Aspergillus oryzae appear to be absorbed intact following oral administration. It has been proposed that once in the bloodstream they may further breakdown and previously absorbed antigenic dietary proteins they encounter, potentially decreasing an allergic response.

Enzymes

How It Works

Amylase

Breaks down carbohydrates, more specifically starch, into smaller dextrins and sugars; produced naturally by humans, microorganisms and plants

Proteases

Hydrolyze protein such as casein, steak, gelatin, soy, fish and other plant and animal proteins into smaller chains of polypeptides (small proteins) and amino acids for easier uptake throughout the body

Lipase

Breaks down fats into essential fatty acids needed for healthy tissues and cells*

Lactase

Breaks down milk sugars (lactose)

Hemicellulase

Breaks down carbohydrates, including fiber and other plant polysaccharides

Cellulase

Breaks down carbohydrates, like fiber and other plant polysaccharides

Maltase

Breaks down starch into the sugar maltose

Invertase

Breaks down sucrose into the simple sugars glucose and fructose

Bromelain

A collective name for the proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzymes found in the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus); known for its digestive properties. A good substitute for animal-based, digestive enzymes pepsin and trypsin due to its activity across a wide pH range

Serrapeptase
(Peptizyme SP® Brand)

Enzyme used by silkworms to dissolve their silken cocoons; A systemic enzyme which has been isolated, studied and used extensively for more than 50 years for its excellent fibrinolytic (fibrin-digesting), proteolytic (protein-digesting) and anti-inflammatory properties

Papain

Obtained from the latex of the fruit of the Papaya tree, papain has been used for centuries as an effective digestive aid 

Alpha-Galactosidase

Breaks down complex carbohydrates commonly contained in legumes such as raffinose and stachyose

Amla

Also known as Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis); a natural, efficacious antioxidant, and one of the richest sources of absorbable vitamin C

Papaya Powder

From green papaya fruit; a natural source of papain and chymopapain, two enzymes well-known for their digestive and proteolytic (protein-digesting) properties
