Since it’s a strong digestive system that keeps you healthy, a happier and healthier life starts with a happy tummy. Once food is eaten and it reaches the digestive system, the enzymes from the stomach and pancreas and bile, breakdown the proteins, starches and fats.

Once these nutrients are broken down into small particles, they are easily absorbed into the blood stream to reach all parts of the body. You could be eating the most perfect, appropriate diet, but if your body lacks efficient absorption all that perfect food will not become a part of your body and it will not be able to function at its best.

Enzymes And Digestion
Enzymes are an integral part of the digestive capacity of the body. Without enzymes, the body’s ability to breakdown proteins, fats and carbs is compromised. Eating processed and refined sugary foods, lack of sleep, stress and ageing decreases the body’s ability to produce enzymes. Hence, there is a need of supplementing the body with enzymes to help it absorb nutrients from all the food for proper digestion.

Finding The Right Enzymes
A plant based enzyme formula can be a great option for vegans. These enzymes come from plants or fungal sources. It is best to choose those enzymes that list activity, instead of the milligrams description.

Some medicine companies have mentioned units such as USP, IAU, DU on the back of their products. If you do not know how to judge the product, it’s best to check the units in milligrams instead of the previously mentioned units. Choose products that contain:
Protease - 10000 USP
Amylase - 10000USP
Lipase - 2000USP
