Carbohydrates are our main source of fuel that each of our cells need to function properly. Foods that are rich in complex carbohydrates are also rich in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients necessary for optimal health. But, because these healthy foods, vegetables, grains, seeds and beans, contain complex carbohydrates, they are often difficult to digest and may end up being fermented in the colon, resulting in uncomfortable gas and bloating.
Supplementing with enzymes that break down and assimilate carbohydrates may reduce these occasional discomforts.
VeggieGest contains seven different types of enzymes that break down difficult-to digest carbohydrates such as fiber and related polysaccharides. VeggieGest also contains a high-potency enzyme, alpha galactosidase, that is key in digesting the lectin-sugars from beans, grains, raw vegetables and other foods that create digestive discomfort. VeggieGest may assist the body in breaking down and assimilating these foods, which takes stress off the gallbladder, liver and pancreas.
When foods are cooked or processed, the enzymes that are naturally in the food are destroyed. Since the modern diet consists primarily of cooked or processed foods, we rely on the digestive enzymes that our bodies manufacture to help us break down our meals.
We all normally produce both metabolic and digestive enzymes. As we age, our bodies produce fewer of the enzymes that we need.
There are many different kinds of enzymes, and they each have a specific purpose. Sometimes people simply have a deficiency of certain types of enzyme. This is why food intolerance's occur. For example, lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase.
The good news is that studies have shown that by supplementing your diet with the right combination of digestive enzymes, you can take meaningful steps to improve and maintain your digestive health. The result may be improved regularity, less digestive discomfort, and better assimilation of vital nutrients.
Advantages of Digestive Enzyme Supplements
Nearly one in three people in the U.S. experience some kind of digestive problem. Though many suffer, few have to. The typical benefits of enzyme supplementation include reduced digestive distress, increased energy and improved regularity.
- Soothe Digestive Distress: When undigested foods travel through the intestines they can irritate and potentially damage the sensitive intestinal wall. Over time, this irritation may reduce our digestive capacity and negatively influence the vital absorption process.
- Increase Energy: According to Yuri Elkaim author of Eating for Energy, in most cases, up to 80% of our body’s vital energy is spent on digestion.3 By aiding the breakdown and absorption of foods, you can free up enormous amounts of energy, increasing physical vitality and enhancing energy levels.
- Promote Regularity: Promoting proper digestion may encourage a healthy intestinal environment, and help relieve occasional constipation and irregularity.
