Your Healthy Gut

I received an email today from a Top Secret Nutrition customer who wanted to know the difference between a probiotic and a digestive enzyme.

Digestive enzymes are proteins that breakdown food into digestible nutrients that can be absorbed and utilized by the body. Digestive enzymes can be found in saliva and stomach acid. These enzymes include protease and peptides to break down proteins that we eat and lipases to break down the fats we consume. Although digestive enzymes are produced by the body, production of enzymes slows at the age of 30 and supplementation is needed.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that aid digestive enzymes in the digestion of food and the processing of waste. Probiotics balance the digestive tract, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and boost immune functions. The adult body does not produce probiotics.

Top Secret Nutrition’s Digestive Enzymes contains both a prebiotic and a probiotic that work together to digest food and deliver a healthy gut!
