Should I Choose Animal or Vegetarian Enzymes?
Not all enzymes are the same
Many digestive enzymes are harvested from slaughter house animals like pigs and cows. They get them from juicing the pancreas and other organs from these dead animals.
Are pancreatic enzymes dangerous?
Pancreatic enzymes like pancreatin, trypsin, chymotrypsin, ox bile and hydrochloric acid harvested from animals do not work as efficiently as vegetarian enzymes and can cause health problems. As discussed on WebMD some pancreatin products are contaminated by Salmonella bacteria have caused illness. Pancreatin can also cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, mouth and skin irritation, and allergic reactions. High doses can cause problems such as high blood levels of a substance called uric acid, as well as colon damage.
Plant-based enzymes are derived from many sources including pineapple, papaya and vegetarian based fermentation. The high pH environment of the small intestine is the only place animal-based enzymes can function, as they are extremely sensitive to low pH ranges. This means that animal based enzymes may not survive outside of this environment.
Plant-based enzymes are not destroyed by the acidic conditions of the stomach.
They are stable in the upper stomach where they can begin processing food immediately.
They are easy to assimilate and does not make the body dependent on them.
How can enzymes change my family’s life?
What are signs of a healthy digestive tract?
No upper indigestion or acid reflux (heartburn). Little or no regular gas, bloating or flatulence. Regular soft and formed bowel movements once or twice a day. No partially digested food or oils in the stool. No intestinal cramping or pain with foods or with defecation. No joint pain or stiffness. No skin problems. A healthy physical exam and appearance in general that reflects good nutrition.
Benefits from using digestive enzymes can include:
Better bowl movements no constipation and/or diarrhea
Reduction in indigestion and heartburn problems
Helps digest food and nourish the immune system
Enzymes are essential nutrients for life
How did we lose our natural enzyme bank?
Processed and Overcooked Foods Without realizing it, every day you eat processed, over-refined, or sterilized foods that destroy the natural balance of healthy flora in your intestines and leave little or no enzymes in your food. Any sustained heat of approximately 118-129 degrees Fahrenheit destroys virtually all enzymes. This means that, for most of us, the food entering our stomachs is severely enzyme deficient. The result is that most of our meals enter our stomachs are devoid of enzymes. The western cooked/processed diet are as much as 40 times higher than that found in people eating a more natural diet.
Studies have shown that over time, the body becomes less efficient at digesting food and maintaining high levels of probiotics in the intestines. It’s no secret that as we age it becomes harder to enjoy a meal without suffering from some type of digestive discomfort. The reason is that every 10 years of life the pancreas produces fewer digestive enzymes. In addition, our modern diets are largely void of natural plant enzymes and we eat less and less raw food. This overall lack of enzymes causes the body to work harder, putting a strain on our internal organs and digestive system. This results in symptoms as minor as heartburn and bloating but can lead to more serious issues.
Nature intended that we continually replenish our enzyme reserve through proper nutrition and eating habits. Unfortunately, that just doesn’t happen.
Stress on the Body
At this point, the pancreas and the other organs of the endocrine system are put under tremendous stress since they have to draw reserves from the entire body in order to produce massive amounts of the proper enzymes. The less digestion that takes place before food reaches the small intestine, the greater the stress placed on the endocrine systems. The bottom line is that regular supplementation with digestive enzymes takes stress off the pancreas (and the entire body) by providing the enzymes required for digestion. In other words, digestive enzyme supplements may just be one of the best insurance policies you can give your body so you can enjoy a long and healthy life.
Is Your Enzyme Supplement Missing crucial ingredients?
