Digestive Enzymes – The Key to Digestive Health

Spread the love

Ideal digestive function is at the core of good health. Not only does our digestive system break down and absorb nutrients, but it also houses 60-70% of the immune system. Digestive complaints such as constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, gas, bloating, and reflux, are each important symptoms that should be examined for the root cause. If not resolved, digestive problems can lead to the development of serious health conditions. Fortunately, there are things that you can do help with your digestive health.

Digestive enzymes are necessary for digestion and absorption of food. Adding more enzymes to your diet is beneficial due to the destruction of enzymes in the cooking and/or processing of foods. Enzyme deficiencies can result in poor absorption and other health problems. Pathway DIGASE contains the full complement of enzymes complemented by gentian root, caraway seed, and ginger root to support digestion. This unique product is formulated to provide as much as 80% of the digestive elements needed for the typical meal.

Check out this video by Registered Dietitian Natalie Butler about the cause of enzyme depletion and what can be done to improve digestive health.  Around the 6 minute mark, she discusses supplemental enzymes and her personal experience with irritable bowel syndrome and enzymes.
