Enzyme supplements may sound yet another in a long line of fad supplements that periodically appear in the marketplace and promise to restore us to full natural health.
The difference between enzymes and most other supplements is that enzymes play a key role in the overall health of the body and its ability to digest and harvest nutrients from food. In fact, without enzymes the body’s performance depletes rapidly resulting in low energy, weak muscles, brittle bones and severe digestion problems.
So the answer to the question when do you need enzymes is quite a simple one. You need enzymes when you feel any of the above symptoms. However, it’s best not to wait until the symptoms get too severe before taking action.
For example, digestive problems typically begin as small problems. If a person notices that they have stomach pain or feel very tired after a high protein meal, then it is likely the person cannot digest protein and should take the digestion enzyme supplement Protease.
Other signs that a person cannot digest fat are fine, brittle hair, white ridges in the nails, always cold and swelling of the hands, knees or feet.
Other common digestion problems include abdominal gas, flatulence, bloating of the stomach and belching. These symptoms are a sign that the person cannot digest carbohydrates, fibres or starch and therefore should take the enzyme supplement Amylase and Cellulase.
Some people get regular diarrhoea or constipation, suffer from mild depression, have brittle fingernails, have itchy scalp and dry skin. They also have trouble concentrating, suffer from excessive thirst, must urinate a lot and crave fatty foods. These people are most likely unable to digest fat properly and therefore should take the enzyme supplement Lipase.
