raw foods enzymes Eating an extra large meal (think about all those meals you chow down on during the holidays) can result is a distended stomach, gas, intestinal problems and discomfort. In order for your body to break down all the food you ingest efficiently and effectively, your body needs an ample supply of digestive enzymes. Some of your body’s organs, including the pancreas, stomach and salivary glands, do make some of these enzymes, however as we age, our digestive system becomes less efficient, thus we produce less of these very important enzymes.

Eating raw foods is a great way to ingest natural enzymes. Unfortunately, these days, more and more foods are being refined, thus they lose their enzymatic properties. This problem coupled with the fact that we produce less enzymes as we age, causes big problems for many people, and that gluttonous meal you once were able to ingest free of discomfort, now brings with it gas, irregular bowel movements and stomach pains.

Digestive enzymes help break down foods in your body and with less of them circulating, your body cannot effectively processes the foods you’re ingesting, thus cannot absorb the nutrients the foods have. If left unattended, people risk malnutrition.

While it’s highly recommended that you eat plenty of fiber, drink copious amounts of water, chewing your food slowly and effectively and consume a lot of fresh vegetables, you may still need to supplement your diet with digestive enzymes. Of course you should still eat in accordance to the above guidelines, supplementing with digestive enzymes will only enhance digestion and aid and assist your intestines.

Not only do digestive enzymes our bodies to digest and utilize all the nutrients we ingest to the greatest extent possible, but they also play a supreme role in eliminating toxins from the body. And by eliminating toxins from your body, you reduce your likelihood of getting sick.

You must realize that enzymes play and even larger role in the body than just an aid to digestion. Your immune system, blood stream, liver, kidneys, spleen and pancreas as well as your ability to think, see, feel and breath all depend on enzymes! Your energy levels also depend on enzymes, so if you’re ever feeling run down, you may want to assess whether or not your digestion is functioning properly (and it’s easy to tell, if you tend to get bloated and gassy after meals, supplementing with an enzyme may be key).

It is blatantly obvious that digestive enzymes are vital for one’s health and purchasing an enzyme supplement to enhance your body’s digestion is incredibly smart. You must make sure that the digestive enzyme mixture includes a mixture of lipase, protease and amylase to effectively break down the fats, proteins and carbohydrates you ingest. Luckily many supplements on the market these days have this holy trinity. To enhance these enzymes, purchasing a product with bromelain and papain in it is optimal. Bromelain is a natural mixture of proteolytic enzymes to help support digestion further while papain helps facilitate the digestion of protein.

If you’re feeling clueless in the sea of digestive enzymes at the vitamin store, don’t hesitate to ask for assistance from an expert. Also, while one enzyme supplement may work for one person, it may not work for you, so be prepared to experiment as well.

Once you purchase a product, it is recommended that you take two digestive enzyme tablets prior to a meal and then two after the meal to further enhance the absorption of nutrients in your body. In a few weeks time, you may feel the effects of the enzymes with symptoms including revved energy, clearer skin, lessened if not alleviated stomach bloat and more!
