Digestive support

Our bodies make 22 enzymes that help break down our food. Beginning in the mouth and throughout the digestive tract to the small intestine, enzymes are created to help break down the proteins, carbohydrates and fats that we consume. Enzymes available in some of the food we eat can also help the digestion process, though much of the food consumed in modern diets has little to no enzyme activity because of its cooking and processing. By breaking down food into the most accessible forms of nutrients, enzymes are critical in maintaining homeostasis in the digestive tract.
