How to Choose the Right Digestive Enzyme for You

July 20, 2018

Summer season is here! The arrival of the warmer weather means it's time for holidays, picnics, and barbecues galore. But with all this gorgeous foods comes the temptation to overindulge. If you do overdo it and are feeling bloated or sluggish, you can help support your digestive system with a good quality, high strength digestive enzyme. Not sure how to choose the right digestive enzyme for you? We've got all you need to know below...

What do Digestive Enzymes do?

Digestive enzymes play an important role in breaking down the food we eat, supporting your digestive system. They aid the digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fibre; and may help reduce bloating as well as that uncomfortable feeling of lactose intolerance. It helps nutrients reach every cell in the body to help you feel strong and energised.

How to Choose the Right Digestive Enzyme

Wondering how to choose the right digestive enzyme? We recommend you look out for a couple of key things when selecting a good quality digestive enzyme. Here are some things to think about.

1. Is it Multi-Strain?

Multi-strains will be more potent, break more bonds in different food groups and last longer in the system.

2. Is it Measured by Food Chemical Codex?

Milligrams are meaningless. Digestive Enzyme quality depends on activity and not weight.

3. Is it Plant Based?

Plant based enzymes are better for two reasons; they work on a broader pH, therefore, they digest food and remain active throughout the digestive system. Secondly, they do not interfere with the natural function of body and cause no side effects.

How to Choose the Right Digestive Enzyme - Our Top Pick: 

One of our top picks has to be Udo’s Choice Digestive Enzymes. A blend of 7 plant-based enzymes, Udo’s Choice Digestive Enzymes assist in the breakdown of food, improve digestion and can reduce bloating after a meal. 

Udo’s Choice Digestive Enzymes is an excellent choice for maintaining optimum digestion and absorption as we get older. After all we are what we absorb and not just what we eat!

When it comes to digestive health, some vitamins are more important than others. Here are some Essential Vitamins for Digestive Health you should add to your diet!
