Digestive enzymes are proteins involved in the digestion of food. Found naturally in the body, secreted by the pancreas, digestive enzymes aid the body in breaking down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.
TYPES OF DIGESTIVE ENZYME’S
There is many different Digestive Enzyme’s within the body, all having a different function and effect on the digestive process. Commonly they are broken down in to 4 main groups:
Protease (protein hydrolysing enzyme) aids the digestion of protein.
Amylase (Starch hydrolysing enzyme) is a digestive enzyme essential for our digestion of carbohydrates.
Lipase (Fat hydrolysing enzyme) aids in the digestion of fat
Lactase (Lactose hydrolysing enzyme) provides a source of the enzyme needed to breakdown lactose.
Cellulase (Cellulose hydrolysing enzyme) helps improve the breakdown of the plant fibre.
IMPACT OF DIGESTIVE ENZYME’S
Protease – Protein is a staple part of any fitness enthusiasts’ diet and can be very stressful on the digestive system. Supplementing with Protease will help relieve some of the symptoms of a high protein diet, such as stomach discomfort or bloating.
Amylase – Carbohydrates again are an essential nutrient in any diet. Whether it be high or low levels of carbohydrate consumption amylase has a role to play.
- High carb diets can leave you feeling bloated or uncomfortable, Amylase by catalysing its breakdown will reduce this symptom.
- Low carb diets Amylase will help by ensuring you are breaking down and receiving all the nutrients possible from the carbohydrates you are receiving.
Lipase – Fats can take a long time to digest, which can have a negative effect on the digestion of other nutrients. Lipase acts by breaking down large fat molecules into smaller molecules in order to ease digestion.
Lactase – Lactase is a type of enzyme that breaks down the sugar, lactose, found in dairy products. Lactose intolerance can be a frustrating problem and something you may experience regularly when consuming Whey Protein. By consuming Lactase, it can lead to relieving the negative side effects associated when consuming lactose such as abdominal bloating/pain, flatulence.
Cellulase – Second to being an essential part of any healthy diet, you will also find when both bulking & cutting your diet is very high in fruit and vegetables. This also means it is very rich in cellulose. Cellulase helps digest these high plant fibre foods such as broccoli, asparagus and beans, which can be hard to digest and cause excessive gas.
