How the digestive system works?
We eat food, but our digestive system doesn’t absorb food, it absorbs nutrients. Food has to be broken down from things like steak and broccoli into its nutrient pieces: amino acids (from proteins), fatty acids and cholesterol (from fats), and simple sugars (from carbohydrates), as well as minerals, vitamins and a variety of other plant and animal compounds. Digestive enzymes, primarily produced in the pancreas and small intestine, break down our food into nutrients so that our bodies can absorb them.
Six symptoms that suggest you might have problems with your digestive system
So what can I do about it?
Theoretically, we should be able to digest just about any type of food we put in our mouth. But changes in food processing and preparation (like fried foods and processed foods) mean our stomachs don't always react well to everything we eat. We may not have enough enzymes in our system to help digest our foods.
What is a Digestive enzyme?
If we don’t have enough digestive enzymes, we can’t break down our food—which means even though we’re eating well, we aren’t absorbing all that good nutrition.
The good news is that since digestive enzymes are very safe and reasonably cheap, you can always try them and see if you notice any difference in your digestion.
There are a variety of digestive enzymes on the market, including single enzyme and multiple enzymes. Check our offers below:
