Here are some of the most common enzymes & what they do for us:
Alpha Galactosidase - Breaks down carbohydrates into simple sugars to make them easier to digest and relieve bloating & gas. This enzyme stops being produced as we age, causing the chance of indigestion to increase.
Lactase - After weaning, our bodies naturally decrease in producing lactase that helps break down lactose (milk sugar) in our intestines. Supplementing with lactase helps replace the enzyme & is ideal for people who are lactose intolerant.
Bromelain - A protein-digesting enzyme found in the stem & juice of pineapples. It can aid in digestion, reduce bloating & gas, relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, and more.
Papain – A proteolytic enzyme that is extracted from papaya and breaks down proteins. It helps relieve those with digestive problems such as diarrhea, treat infections, & can also be used to reduce inflammation.
Amylase – This important digestive enzyme helps break down carbohydrates into simple sugars that the body can use for energy. As we age, we begin producing lower levels of amylase, so a supplement like FarmHaven can help.
Immune System Boost
80% of our immune system is contained in our digestive system that helps fight bad bacteria, maintain gut health, and repair cells.
Better Mood & Relaxation
Our GI tract is responsible for producing 95% of the serotonin - "feel good" hormone - in our bodies. Feelings of relaxation, positivity, and overall sense of wellbeing are connected to a healthy digestive system.
Regular Bowel Movements
Digestive enzymes help ensure healthy bowel movements throughout the day to help prevent cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, and gas.
