What are Digestive Enzymes?

Enzymes initiate many chemical reactions in your body. These protein-like substances help maintain tissues, orchestrate many body functions and digest food.

Enzymes can be broken down into three categories:

  1. Metabolic Enzymes spark reactions inside the cells of our body. Our organs, tissues and cells do not function without the help and direction of these enzymes.
  2. Digestive Enzymes are secreted by our pancreas to break down the nutrients in our food.
  3. Food Enzymes are supplied through what we eat and break down foods before digestive enzymes are called upon. All cooked and processed foods have no food enzymes.
