Not yet familiar with digestive enzymes? Allow us to change your life.
An enzyme is a substance produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction. In the human body, digestive enzymes break down the food we eat into digestible bits and they're made in-house, primarily in the pancreas. As we age, the body can produce fewer enzymes which may lead to bloating, gas, and diarrhea.
Different digestive enzymes have different functions. Amylase breaks apart complex sugars into smaller molecules. Pepsin breaks down the proteins in dairy, meat, and eggs. Lipase breaks down complex fats into smaller fatty acids. We can go on and on, but the point is that digestive enzymes are critical for maintaining good health.
What happens when your body isn't making enough enzymes? Digestive issues, and lots of them, like diarrhea, constipation, gas, and bloating. If you experience any of these issues, adding a digestive enzyme supplement to your self-care system may be helpful in alleviating some of these issues.
And if you really want to up your gut game? Make sure a daily probiotic is a part of your routine. Your gut is the home of the immune system, and having good gut flora is essential for women's health. The gut microbiome plays a very important role in your health by helping control digestion and benefiting your immune system and many other aspects of health. An imbalance of unhealthy and healthy microbes in the intestines may contribute to weight gain, high blood sugar, high cholesterol and other disorders.
The best thing you can do for good gut health? Eat organic foods, drink plenty of water, and add a probiotic and digestive enzyme supplement to your routine. Our Good Girl Probiotic is made with specific strains of good gut bacteria for women's health, and Bye Bye Bloat contains the digestive enzymes you need like lipase, amylase, protease, and pepsin along with other natural, organic ingredients. Try them together in The Gut Goodness Kit!
