Digestive enzymes help your body break down food so nutrients can be absorbed. Your body makes these enzymes in several organs. The gallbladder, liver, mouth, stomach, and small intestine all participate in production; however, your pancreas does most of the work. Cells on the surface of the intestines play a key role in storing these enzymes.
Enzymes break down food
Enzymes help your body break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins from the food that you eat. This process helps not only in nutrient absorption but in their distribution through your bloodstream.
The most common enzymes are:
- Amylases, which help your body digest carbohydrates.
- Lipases, which help digest fats.
- Proteases, which help digest proteins.
Without the proper balance of these enzymes, it’s difficult for your body to break the molecular bonds that hold food together and help unlock nutrients and energy.
Cellular breakdown as you age
As you age, the gut becomes less efficient at processing enzymes and, as a result, needs more support for maintaining healthy digestive function. When your body has weak digestion, nutrient absorption in the cells can be reduced. This malabsorption can lead to gas, bloating, abdominal discomfort, fatigue, headaches, and other systemic indicators of poor gut health.
