The petrol you fill your car with is used by it as fuel to run. The petrol undergoes a complex process to be able to provide energy to the car. This is what happens in your body too. Your body gets the energy it needs to function efficiently from the food you eat. Food, whether it is your staple alu ka paratha or a delicious lasagne, is composed of nutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. These nutrients need to be broken down into their building blocks to enable your body to absorb and utilize them for growth and energy. This process is called digestion.
During this process, nutrient like proteins are broken down into amino acids, fats into fatty acids, and carbohydrates into simple sugars like glucose.
This work of breaking down complex substances into simpler forms that can be easily absorbed by your body is aided and speeded by digestive enzymes.
These digestive enzymes are produced by digestive organs like the mouth, pancreas, gallbladder, liver, stomach, small intestine, and colon. The quantity and type of enzymes produced depend on what you eat and how much you eat.
Some foods like rice, pasta, and potatoes are high in carbohydrates or starch. Amylase is a digestive enzyme that acts on starch in food and breaks it down into smaller carbohydrate molecules like glucose.
Some foods like eggs, meat, and lentils are high in protein. Protease is an enzyme that breaks down protein into its building blocks and amino acids.
Some foods like fries and butter are high in fats. Lipase is a digestive enzyme that acts on the fats in such foods and breaks them down into fatty acids and glycerol.
The Digeplex range provides these different digestive enzymes and, thus, helps in digestion.
