Consistently poor digestion usually leads to digestive problems and less than optimal absorption of nutrients. The result can be vitamin deficiencies, particularly of fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K. In addition, food allergies can develop when inadequately digested proteins are wrongly absorbed through the gut. An individual who has frequent indigestion should make sure to have adequate digestive enzyme support.*
The technical term for consistently poor digestion is maldigestion. Maldigestion can affect individuals of any dietary preference or persuasion. Although many digestive enzyme formulas are derived from animal sources, alternative non-animal sources are available that exhibit demonstrated efficacy as digestive aids.* For individuals who want a non-animal sourced digestive enzyme formula, Thorne's Plantizyme provides amylase, protease, lipase, cellulase, and lactase derived from an Aspergillus fungus species.*
Circumstances such as illness, gall bladder removal, overuse of antacids, and normal conditions associated with aging can contribute to the insufficient secretion of stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, and bile. These situations can adversely affect digestive enzyme activity and lead to heartburn, gas, bloating, and other symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort.
