Continual poor digestion usually leads to digestive problems and less than optimal absorption of nutrients. This can result to vitamin deficiencies, particularly of fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K. Food allergies can develop when inadequately digested proteins are wrongly absorbed through the gut. Individuals with regular indigestion should have adequate digestive enzyme support.
The technical term for continual poor digestion is maldigestion – Maldigestion can affect individuals of any dietary preference or persuasion. Although many digestive enzyme formulas are derived from animal sources, alternative non animal sources are available that exhibit demonstrated efficacy as digestive aids. For individuals who want a non animal sourced digestive enzyme formula, Thorne’s Plantizyme provides amylase, protease, lipase, cellulase, and lactase derived from an Aspergillus fungus species.
Illness, gall bladder removal, overuse of antacids, and normal conditions associated with ageing can contribute to the insufficient secretion of stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, and bile. These situations can adversely affect digestive enzyme activity and lead to heartburn, gas, bloating, and other symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort.
