Do you know that annoying sensation when you just can't digest certain food? There are several reasons for it. Allergies to some ingredients, medications, stress, inflammations, age, lack of "live" food, too much processed food, etc.
The consequences may be harmless at first. Gasses, bad breath, bloating, a sensation of heaviness, undigested food in the feces. With time, the consequences become more serious. Digestive issues, the feeling like you're having a rock in your stomach, strong pressure within the body, regurgitation, pyrosis, nausea after each meal, vertigo, tiredness ... Sounds familiar?
Usually, the reason is that your body is not able anymore to properly digest certain nutrients, and it needs external help. Swanson's wide-specter digestive enzymes help your body to regain its ability to properly digest food.
The active ingredients in Swanson's digestive enzyme complex:
Protease breaks down protein into peptides and amino acids, which are essential for the function of all cells in the body. You should supplement protease on a high-protein diet or when you drink more protein drinks per day.
Amylase is one of the first enzymes involved in the digestion of food. It helps to break down carbohydrates into simple sugars. It can also help break down lactose in people with mild lactose intolerance.
Lipase is an important enzyme for the digestion of fats. It breaks down fat-soluble nutrients. These are vitamin A, D, E, K. If there is a lipase deficiency in your body, these vitamins can't be properly absorbed, which can lead to swelling, stomach discomfort, and flatulence.
Papain helps to break down protein into amino acids. You should supplement this natural enzyme found in pineapple and papaya when you consume high-protein foods. A high protein intake (30 g or more) can hinder the digestion of protein.
Cellulase is the main enzyme in the digestion of cellulose in your body. A destroyed intestinal flora prevents the digestion of cellulose and hinders the absorption of important nutrients.
Bromelain plays a key role in breaking down protein and is extremely important for the digestive tract. When the protein you get from the food you eat is not properly broken down into amino acids, your body doesn't get the necessary building blocks to recover and build muscle mass. Bromelain protects you from parasites in the food and has an anti-inflammatory effect. It helps your immune system to break down and eliminate potentially harmful substances in the food. It is especially important for people who eat a lot of red meat. Bromelain helps with bacterial and viral infections. It also gives your skin a nice look and reduces the visibility of cellulite.
Ox bile extract helps to break down and digest fats.
Betaine is well known to athletes as a supplement to increase endurance, strength, and explosivity. But it is a lot more than that. It improves your digestion by increasing the level of gastric acid, which helps you to break down food.
