Digestive Enzymes

Produced internally and available through supplements, digestive enzymes help break down, deliver and absorb food and its nutrients. With each enzyme’s function to target a specific compound, there are three primary groups of digestive enzymes: proteases, lipases and carbohydrases (amylases), which initiate the digestion of protein, fats and carbohydrates, respectively.

Types of Enzymes

Proteases

Proteases help provide more complete protein digestion and may help prevent certain food allergies.

Carbohydrases

Carbohydrase: helps break down sugar, starch and other carbs into simple sugars that the body uses primarily for energy production.

Lipases

Supplemental lipases work alongside the body's lipases to optimize the digestion of fats and the bioavailability of essential fatty acids, which play a critical role in satiation and gastric emptying.
