An enzyme is a protein, or a protein-based molecule, that acts as a catalyst – initiating, speeding up, or producing specific chemical reactions. Life would not exist without enzymes. In our bodies, digestive enzymes help break down food into its most basic components so they can be absorbed. Many people suffer from bloating, heartburn, and other signs of poor digestion. This can be caused by an insufficiency of digestive enzymes in the stomach and gut.
Complete Digestive Enzymes from Webber Naturals combine enzymes needed for complete digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Your body's ability to produce enzymes tends to lessen with age, so supplementing is one of the easiest ways to improve digestion. It is also an important way to get all the nutritional benefits from the foods we eat.
Taking enzyme supplements with meals, assists the digestive process, enhancing the breakdown of food in the stomach and intestines, and helping to reduce heartburn, gas, and bloating.
