What are Digestion Supplements?

Naturally occurring digestive enzymes are proteins that your body makes to break down food and aid digestion. Digestion is the process of using the nutrients found in food to give your body energy, help it grow and perform vital functions.

Your stomach, small intestine and pancreas all make digestive enzymes. The pancreas is really the enzyme “powerhouse” of digestion. It produces the most important digestive enzymes, which are those that break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats.

A good supplement should include protease (to break down proteins), lipase (for fats), and amylase (for starches and sugars), as well as lactase for lactose in dairy and alpha-galactosidase for legumes and cruciferous vegetables.

What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are live organisms that make up the good bacteria in your gut. They help keep your digestive tract healthy, so they support the work your enzymes do. Unlike enzymes, probiotics do not have the ability to break down or digest food components.

Without good gut bacteria, you might start experiencing the same symptoms similar to those of an enzyme insufficiency, such as bloating or gas, due to abnormal bacterial overgrowth or imbalance in your intestines.

Enzymes vs. Probiotics
