Solgar® Digestive Enzymes is a unique patented complex that helps support your digestive system and food assimilation.
By taking 1-3 tablets of Solgar® digestive enzymes per day, you help your body digest the food you eat and absorb the necessary nutrients.
The digestive process is a complex system in which the body breaks down the food we eat into nutrients with the help of digestive enzymes that are produced in the pancreas and small intestine.
If we don't have enough digestive enzymes, our body can't completely break down our food, and even if we follow a healthy and balanced diet, the nutrients aren't absorbed efficiently.

Your body makes digestive enzymes to help you break down food and absorb nutrients. If you have certain health conditions, you may need replacement digestive enzymes to help prevent malabsorption.

Naturally occurring digestive enzymes are a vital part of your digestive system. Without them, your body can’t break foods down so that nutrients can be fully absorbed.

A lack of digestive enzymes can lead to a variety of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. It can also leave you malnourished, even if you eat a nutritious diet.

The main types of enzymes are:

Amylase. This enzyme breaks down carbohydrates, or starches, into sugar molecules. Insufficient amylase can lead to diarrhea.


Lipase. This works with liver bile to break down fats. If you don’t have enough lipase, you’ll be lacking in fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K.


Protease. This enzyme breaks down proteins into amino acids. It also helps keep bacteria, yeast, and protozoa out of the intestines. A shortage of protease can lead to allergies or toxicity in the intestines.

When the pancreas doesn’t naturally secrete digestive enzymes, it affects your body’s ability to break down the foods you eat and absorb nutrients. This can lead to malnutrition as well as symptoms such as bloating, cramping, gassiness, and diarrhea.

Replacement digestive enzymes take the place of natural enzymes, helping to break down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins from the foods you eat. Then the nutrients are absorbed into your body through the wall of the small intestine and distributed through the bloodstream.

As a result, replacement digestive enzymes can help prevent malabsorption and related digestive discomforts.

 

You may need digestive enzymes if you have EPI. Some other conditions that can leave you short on digestive enzymes are:

  • chronic pancreatitis
  • pancreatic cysts or benign tumors
  • blockage or narrowing of the pancreatic or biliary duct
  • pancreatic cancer
  • pancreatic surgery
  • cystic fibrosis
  • diabetes
  • If you have EPI, digestion can be slow and uncomfortable. It can also leave you malnourished.

Symptoms may include:

  • bloating
  • excessive gas
  • cramping after meals
  • diarrhea
  • yellow, greasy stools that float
  • foul-smelling stools
  • weight loss even if you’re eating well
