Enzymes 101

Enzymes 101

Let’s just put it out there: good health starts from a good gut. Indeed, multiple studies have shown that a bad gut tends to result in a higher occurrence of gastrointestinal and endocrine disorders, autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases, plus an impacted immune system. We’re not going to lie, but having an unsettled gut does take a toll on one’s mental health too.

So, how do you cultivate good gut health? As the saying goes, you are what you eat — but it’s a little more complicated than that. Have a think back to bio class during your school years. Do you roughly remember learning about enzymes, and how they help break down substances in our digestive system? If you do, you’re on the right track!

What exactly are enzymes?

Our body has lots of natural digestive enzymes, which are proteins that help to break down food. This breakdown process releases the nutrients from the food into your body, giving it the energy to function on a daily basis.

Enzymes are found in many places: in the mouth (saliva), stomach, small intestine, and pancreas. The star of the show is the pancreas, which produces essential digestive enzymes that break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.

What happens when you don't have enough enzymes?

That’s when the problems start. When your body doesn’t produce enough enzymes, or doesn’t release the enzymes properly, you tend to start having a whole array of health problems. You might find yourself experiencing gas, diarrhoea, bloating, cramps, and more. It’s a real pain!

Introducing: Multi Enzyme+ supplements

If you suffer from the above, why not consider implementing enzyme supplements into your diet? In fact, even if you are in the pink of health, eating enzyme supplements on a daily basis will only help to promote even better gut health in the long run. It’s a win-win situation!

If you’re worried about introducing chemical substances into your body, don’t worry. Our Multi Enzyme+ supplements are 100% natural and plant-based, with no artificial additives or preservatives included. In fact, it contains extracts from foods that contain natural digestive enzymes, such as pineapple fibre, corn, papaya, wheat germ, and green beans. We’ve even added a nifty cranberry extract for a sweet and appetising flavour.

Other benefits include promoting metabolism, increasing nutrient absorption, boosting energy levels, and much much more. It’s easy to eat too: before you eat a heavy meal (e.g. lunch or dinner), simply pour a packet into a room-temperature beverage of your choice, stir to dissolve, and you’re all set!

Tip: We especially love popping one packet before we go for a heavy buffet.

Ready to say hello to feeling good all day, every day? Don’t just take our word for it — feel the difference by trying our Multi Enzyme+ supplements for yourselves!
