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:
- 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.
- Digestive Enzymes are secreted by our pancreas to break down the nutrients in our food.
- 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.
