In this category, you will find products that have been specially developed for the digestive system, including enzymes, herbal supplements and products for pH balance. Functional digestion is important for nutrient uptake, and part of our overall health.
Enzymes for digestion
All the food we eat needs to be broken down into smaller components in order for the nutrients to be absorbed in the intestines, and this process depends on several factors in order to function optimally. Digestion in the gastrointestinal tract is, among other things, dependent on the availability of enzymes. Digestive enzymes come in different varieties and process different types of foods. Amylase breaks down carbohydrates, protease breaks down proteins, lipase breaks down fat and cellulase takes care of fibre. Lactase is the type of enzyme that breaks down lactose (milk sugar) and is the enzyme those with lactose intolerance lack, resulting in problems with the breakdown of dairy products. The right enzymes make it easier to improve your digestion. We have lots of enzyme supplements with digestive enzymes for a lighter feeling in the stomach.
You will also find combined dietary supplements with different herbs, which act in different ways for efficient digestion, and products for pH balance in the stomach and intestines. Poor digestion can cause troublesome stomach issues, such as bloating, gas and stomach cramps. Whatever the cause of your stomach problems, you will find the products here.
