Our new premium range of protein supplements have a slightly different blend compared to our standard vanilla and chocolate products. For the premium range we have included a unique blend of specific digestive enzymes that offer much more than just aiding proper digestion and better absorption of nutrients.
Enzymes can be described as simple proteins found within each living cell, where they act as ‘biological catalysts’ to regulate various biological reactions, including digestion. Several digestive enzymes are involved in breaking down protein, carbohydrates, and fats and other complex molecules present in food. Through this action, they facilitate the digestive process and thus help better nutrient absorption by the body.
However, in several individuals, due to aging or otherwise, body’s natural ability to produce certain pancreatic enzymes like lipase, amylase as well as other extra pancreatic enzymes that play a crucial role in macronutrient digestion starts declining. So this lack of optimal digestive function associated with enzyme inadequacy may lead to malabsorption and a host of related health issues, if enzyme insufficiency is left unaddressed.
Improving gut health
Fortunately you can replenish enzyme losses or deficiencies via enzyme supplementation and that is why we developed this new blend. Enzyme supplementation is highly recommended to get that ‘extra support’ to offset the accumulated negative impact of dietary problems that modern society deals with today.
Enzymes are the essential part of any chemical reaction that takes place in our body. Various biological reactions are regulated by different types of enzymes.
For example, several enzymes play a key role in the proper digestion of the food that we consume everyday in order to be assimilated and help body to absorb several nutrients.
Natural enzymes to help with sore muscles
Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), a particular type of muscle soreness, is a well-documented phenomenon, often occurring as the result of unaccustomed or high intensity eccentric exercise. Muscle shortening, enhanced passive stiffness, swelling, low on strength and power, localized soreness and disturbed proprioception are the common symptoms associated that often occur within 24 h post-exercise and lasting for 3–4 days.
However, it has been suggested that using enzymes could be a better alternative. Sitosterols, plant sterols and protease enzymes have been found to alleviate DOMS-associated pain and inflammation. Oral supplementation of protease enzyme has been known to improve injury recovery time.
The advantages of enzyme supplements
In cases of enzyme insufficiency, caused by damage to the sites of enzyme production a supplement can lessen the symptoms caused by digestive and metabolic disorders, wherein individuals lack specific enzymes. For example, lactose intolerance, which is caused by lactase deficiency.
