Enzymes For Digestive Disorders
Enzymes for digestive disorders. We eat food, but our digestive system doesn’t absorb food, it absorbs nutrients. Food has to be broken down from things like steak and broccoli into its nutrient pieces: amino acids (from proteins), fatty acids and cholesterol (from fats), and simple sugars (from carbohydrates), as well as vitamins, minerals, and a variety of other plant and animal compounds. Digestive enzymes, primarily produced* in the pancreas and small intestine, break down our food into nutrients so that our bodies can absorb them.
Tornado Enzymes is the ultimate in digestive enzyme supplementation. This advance formula is the only one in the market, which provides your body with virtually every important digestive enzyme known, and in optimum proportions!
We cannot always be sure that the foods that we consume are being digested and absorbed properly. Tornado enzymes is one simple step closer to ensuring that proteins, food sources and other vital nutrients are assimilated properly and effectively.
What would cause digestive enzymes to stop working correctly in the body?
First, diseases may prevent proper digestive enzyme production.
- Pancreatic problems, including cystic fibrosis, pancreatic cancer, and acute or chronic pancreatitis.
- Brush border dysfunction, the most severe is long standing Celiac disease, where the brush border is flattened or destroyed. Other diseases like Crohn’s can also cause severe problems.
But even in the absence of any obvious disease, things still may not be working properly.
- Low-grade inflammation in the digestive tract (such as that caused by “food allergies,” intestinal permeability, dysbiosis, parasitic infection, etc.) can lead to deficiencies in digestive enzymes.
- Aging has been associated with decreased digestive function, though I personally wonder if this is a result of aging, or aging badly.
- Low stomach acid—we’ll talk about this more in a future article, but if you have low stomach acid, it’s likely that you won’t have adequate digestive enzymes either.
- Chronic stress. This is the most common reason for digestive enzyme problems. Our body has two modes: sympathetic “fight or flight,” and parasympathetic “rest and digest.” When we’re in “fight or flight” mode, digestive is given a very low priority, which means digestive function (including digestive enzyme output) is dialed down. Chronic stress= constant “fight of flight” mode = impaired digestive enzyme output.
