When we are younger, digestive enzymes break down the food we eat into proteins, fats, and carbohydrates which provide nutrition for the body. But as we age the body’s digestive abilities start to deteriorate, leading to gas, bloating, food that is not broken down properly, nutritional deficiencies, and inflammatory conditions like irritable bowel syndrome.
Fortunately, enzyme supplements like DIGESTsmart by Lorna Vanderhaeghe make it possible to enhance digestive health.
Each digestive enzyme helps to break down different types of food:
- Amylase: Digests carbohydrates
- Lipase: Digests fats
- Cellulase: Breaks down fiber
- Lactase: Digests milk sugar (lactose) in dairy products
- Bromelain and Papain: Digests proteins
- Facilitates proper digestion
- Reduces gas
- Reduces bloating
- Improves absorption of nutrients
- Eliminates heartburn due to inadequate digestion
- Reduces adverse food reactions
- Controls some food allergies
Each caplet contains:
One caplet with each meal or as directed by a health practitioner. If you have overeaten take an additional tablet after the meal.
