6 Natural Digestive Enzymes

6 Natural Digestive Enzymes

Everything you eat requires some energy to digest. We typically eat three meals per day plus snacks. All this food can take a toll on digestion. The good news is that you can select foods in your diet that are less burdensome on the digestive tract overall. These foods contain natural digestive enzymes which help the body process food more efficiently.

Understanding Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes aid the body to break down food and enhance nutrient absorption through the lining of the intestines and into the bloodstream. The body naturally produces several types of enzymes to support digestion.

If your body struggles to make enough of its own digestive enzymes, you can consume foods that contain some of their own and in turn provide ease to your digestive tract.

Here are the top six foods that contain digestive enzymes:

  • Avocados
  • Bananas
  • Honey
  • Kimchi
  • Papayas
  • Pineapple

 Digestive enzymes help break down foods like fats (lipase), carbohydrates (amylase), and proteins (protease) into useable nutrients. If you are not producing enough digestive enzymes, a number of digestive disorders can occur. Adding digestive enzyme rich foods and supplements to your diet can promote better gut health and digestion.

If you experience digestive disturbances like heartburn, abdominal bloating, or food intolerances, your body may lack necessary digestive enzymes to break down your food. Working with an integrative practitioner or nutritionist who understands the intricacies of the digestive system can help improve your gut health.
