Digestive Enzymes Supplements UK
Digestive enzymes are enzymes that break down the macromolecules of foods into their smaller building blocks making it more digestible by the body. The body cannot digest the food which we eat, but rather it can digest the nutrients. Our natural digestive enzymes are produced in the pancreas and the small intestine, they are also made in the saliva and the stomach. Some people do not produce enough digestive enzymes which can give rise to a wide range of symptoms such as: Gas and bloating; the sensation that food is still sitting in the stomach and feels undigested; feeling full after eating only a very small amount of food; undigested food in stools; floating stools; even an “oil slick” in toilet bowel due to the undigested fat. Digestive enzymes taken as a food supplement can help alleviate such symptoms.
