The Best Digestive Enzymes to Build a Stronger Gut

The Best Digestive Enzymes to Build a Stronger Gut


In
a recent video, we talked about how digestive enzymes affect our health. Our enzymes are so important to the body that,
if they are in a deficit, our digestive and nutrient absorption capacities are reduced,
causing many health issues; Digestive enzymes are produced and secreted
by the mouth, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, and intestines, and they help with the digestive
process so that the nutrients of foods can become bioavailable. Did you know that? For them to work correctly, it depends on
the levels of mental and physical stress, the intracellular, extracellular and bodily
environment, and also the level of toxins in the body. The lack of some digestive enzymes is linked
to some diagnosis, such as dysbiosis, parasites, food intolerance, malabsorption syndrome and
others. Are you enjoying this video? Then give it a thumbs up to help our channel. Their lack may cause chronic inflammatory
processes and autoimmune diseases. So, we will show you now the main digestive
enzymes and how to supplement them: Protease
This enzyme is secreted by the pancreas and participates in the breakdown of proteins,
being activated by the intestinal juice. Lactase It is responsible for the hydrolyzation
of lactose into glucose and galactose. Its lack or deficiency of production makes
it impossible to digest lactose which, once it reaches the big intestine, causes fermentative
diarrhea, flatulence, and other digestive disorders. Lipase
This enzyme helps with the breakdown and absorption of fats in the intestine. It can be used in cases of indigestion, pancreatic
enzyme deficiency, cystic fibrosis, and celiac disease. Do not use it with betaine hydrochloride,
or hydrochloric acid, since it can destroy lipase. Amylase
It facilitates and accelerates the digestion of starch, fats, and proteins. It is great to treat deficiencies in the secretion
of pancreatic juice and chronic inflammations of the pancreas. Pepsin
Activated by the gastric juice, it acts in the breakdown of some peptidic bonds  while
still in the stomach, releasing smaller molecules that will be later absorbed in the intestine. Pancreatin
This is the pancreatic enzyme. It is important in cases of pancreatic insufficiency,
dyspepsia, pancreatitis, and steatorrhea. Bromelain
This enzyme is found in pineapple, we have talked about it some times on our channel. It acts as an anti-inflammatory, immune system
modulator, mucolytic, antibiotic potentiator, digestive, and to reduce the incidences of
myocardial infarction. Papain
Another enzyme with anti-inflammatory action. It aids the digestion of proteins in patients
that suffer from chronic dyspepsia and gastritis. Betaine
It is great for the liver and gastrointestinal disturbances. It increases cellular hydric retention, besides
protecting enzymes and contributing to the synthesis of creatin on skeletal muscle. Phew! There are so many, aren’t there? And these are only the main ones. If you suffer from any of these issues, talk
to a doctor or dietitian so they can help you choose the best enzymes for your case. But, if you suspect you have a deficiency
of one of them, just buy the ready-to-take capsules. Making sure that your digestion is working
correctly is one of the best ways of ensuring that your whole body is healthy. After all, nutrients, when broken down and
absorbed, result in a well-nourished body. And good nourishment is nothing more than
a synonym of good health.

  1. I like the video but I would of liked if you showed where each of these can be found naturally like you did for the one found in pineapple

  2. I have so many of the digestive problems mentioned and I take a digestive enzyme capsule with every meal and it does help. Currently I do not eat dairy or wheat but I would like to try a little cheese now and then but I have really bad reactions to wheat and I believe it would not be resolved by taking a digestive enzyme so I will stay away from that.
