Enzymes Are Essential for Healthy Digestion

20 million Canadians are affected by digestive discomfort1 that affects their daily living and quality of life. A largely overlooked factor may be enzymes—biological catalysts that are essential to break down protein, fat, and carbohydrates and assimilate important nutrients from food.

How Enzyme Activity Works to Facilitate Digestion
Enzyme activity begins in the mouth where salivary amylase, lingual lipase, and ptyalin initiate starch and fat digestion. In the stomach, hydrochloric acid activates pepsinogen to pepsin, which breaks down protein, and gastric lipase begins the hydrolysis of fats. Most digestion and absorption takes place in the small intestine and is mediated by pancreatic amylase, protease, lipase, and bile salts

Many Factors Affect Enzyme Production & Digestion
Reduced enzyme production can make it harder to digest food and assimilate nutrients. Several factors may influence enzyme activity and digestion:

• Poor eating habits, such as inadequate chewing of food, “eating on the run,” or eating late in the day
• Dietary choices such as refined carbohydrates, fat, and high amounts of meat
• Hydrochloric acid and enzyme secretion generally decline with age
• Naturally occurring enzymes are destroyed when food is cooked at 48° C (118° F) or greater
