As new research places an increasing emphasis on gut health and digestion as a component of optimal health. Digestive enzymes are an important part of this equation as they are essential for getting the nutrients out of the food you eat. Amylase is one of three major enzymes responsible for digesting food and extracting nutrients from the body. Amylase breaks starch down into isomaltose and maltose, two sugar units, as well as other key enzymes. Foods high in starch like bread, corn, and grains, require optimal amylase levels for digestion and metabolism. Without it, the potential fuel from these foods goes to waste.
Amylase deficiency can result in impaired metabolic function, specifically of carbohydrates. Larger molecules cannot be effectively broken down leading to unbalanced blood sugar.
Reasons to supplement with Amylase:
- Improved Digestion
- Increased Energy Levels
- Reduced Inflammation
- Improved Blood Sugar
- Anti-Aging Effects
