The inability to properly break down and digest food often leads to excess gas which is one of the most common symptoms of bloating. Digestive enzymes can help combat gas by supporting the body in breaking down the foods we eat.
The mouth, stomach, and small intestine are all parts of the digestive system where your body produces enzymes. The pancreas is responsible for the majority of the work. Food materials are physically broken down into smaller pieces during mechanical digestion in order to facilitate chemical digestion more effectively. Chemical digestion is the process by which digestive enzymes break down the ingested chemicals’ molecules even further until they may are absorbed into the bloodstream. The small intestine is where most chemical digestion takes place and where nutrients are absorbed for energy production, growth, and cellular repair. (1)
Your body’s capacity to digest food and absorb nutrients is impacted when the pancreas is unable to release digestive enzymes on its own. In addition to symptoms like bloating, cramping, gassiness, and diarrhea, this might result in malnutrition.
The body has different digestive enzymes to break down different kinds of food. Some people may not have particular enzymes because of an illness. Inadequate digestion in any form can lead to unpleasant sensations in the gastrointestinal tract and a lack of absorption of some nutrients. Small and large bowel disorders that affect food digestion and absorption include Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, Whipple disease, and celiac disease.
The inability to acquire glucose and galactose from lactose, as well as symptoms like gas, bloating, diarrhea, and gas are all signs of lactose intolerance, which is brought on by insufficient lactase. (1)
DigesSEB included in GI Assist is a proprietary blend of digestive enzymes: (amylases, lactase, proteases, lipase, and cellulose). Let’s take a look at each of these below.
– Amylase: The pancreas and mouth produce amylase, which breaks down complex carbs.
– Lipase: produced in the pancreas and breaks down lipids.
– Protease: produced in the pancreas and breaks down proteins.
– Lactase: produced in the small intestine which digests lactose
– Cellulase: An enzyme called cellulase decomposes cellulose, a complex carbohydrate included in plant fibers.
The DigesSEB blend can help ensure your digestive enzymes are balanced and sufficient for optimal food breakdown and absorption.
Bromelain is included to support the breakdown of food. Cysteine proteinases are proteolytic enzymes found in bromelain that aid in the breakdown of proteins and aid in food digestion.
Also included in GI Assist is aloe vera powder. Aloe can help increase the amount of water in the intestines and is frequently used as a laxative to enhance motility of the gastrointestinal tract. (2) Reducing and preventing the occurrence of constipation can help reduce bloating. Aloe can have a soothing effect on the colon and can help calm gut inflammation. Aloe has been proven effective in reducing symptoms in individuals with IBS. (3)
