What are enzymes and how do they work?
Enzymes do digestion. They are naturally occurring proteins that speed up reactions. Enzymes act like tiny scissors, cutting up food in the stomach into smaller components. This helps bodies more easily and fully absorb nutrients.
Without enough enzymes, our body can struggle to break down troublesome foods, leading to occasional gas, bloating, indigestion and irregularity. With all-natural enzyme supplementation, your body gets an extra boost to the digestive process, helping maximize energy and contributing to whole-body health.*
If my body and food already produce enzymes, why do I need supplements?
Not only can an enzyme deficiency come from the foods we eat, but different bodies naturally may produce fewer enzymes. It can be hard to get what's needed through food alone because the process of cooking destroys the enzymes contained within food. Taking an enzyme supplement can help fill in the gap.
What is different about Kids Digest™ enzymes versus others?
Not all enzyme supplements are created equal, and Kids Digest is ideal for children of any age — provided they can chew tablets. It contains powerful enzymes like amylase, lipase, cellulase and protease. These enzymes break down complex foods like carbohydrates, fats, fiber and protein.*
Enzymedica's proprietary Thera-blend™ technology means that the enzymes found in Kids Digest will work throughout the entire pH spectrum found along your digestive tract. When other brands’ enzyme formulas may fall short, in almost all acidic or alkaline environments, Kids Digest will be effective.
